The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks opened their WOAA Senior Hockey season with a 5-2 victory over the Shallow Lake Crushers.
But the Goderich Pirates were thunderstruck in Tillsonburg, dropping a 9-0 decision.
Saturday's loss leaves the Pirates winless in league play this season.
Goderich has been outscored 24-2 in its three games.
One other game of note -- Clinton beat Komoka 4-3 in overtime.
The Goderich Pirates will try to tame the Thunder at home next Friday.
It's their only game next weekend, and goes from the MRC at 8:30 PM.
