CORNWALL – The Cornwall Nationals snapped a four game losing skid Saturday night with a 7-3 win over the visiting Watertown Wolves.

MJ Graham had a pair of goals. Maxime Guyon, Brandon Vuic, Jakob Smith, Ahmed Mahfouz and Yan Dumontier all added singles.

But there weren’t many people in the stands for the game – 502 were at the Ed Lumley Arena, the lowest reported attendance for a home game so far this season.

It’s only the second time this season crowd numbers have dipped below 600. The last time was on Dec. 2 when 532 people were for another Nationals-Wolves game at the Ed.

The Cornwall Nationals are now second in the Federal Hockey League standings with a record of 16-11-0-0-2 – 19 points back of Port Huron.

Cornwall is back on the road Friday (Feb. 9) when they head to North Carolina for a three game tilt with the Thunderbirds.
