Nationals shutout Wolves twice in home-and-home

CORNWALL – Star acquisition Ahmed Mahfouz didn’t disappoint, scoring four goals in an 8-0 shutout of the visiting Watertown Wolves Saturday night.

Maxime Guyon, Sylvester Bzdyl, Yan Dumontier and Brandon Vuic all added singles for the Nationals.

The Nationals were coming off another win – a 5-0 shutout of Watertown in their home barn.

Pre-season play wraps up next weekend with a home-and-home series again with the Wolves.

The regular season starts Nov. 4.

Mahfouz, a three-time Federal Hockey League champion, was named the team’s captain and his arrival in Cornwall was marked with a news conference in late August.
