The Washington Power opened up an 8-0 first-quarter lead and never looked back, cruising past the New York Saints 23-15 Saturday night at the Capital Centre.

Paul Gait opened the Washington scoring at 3:50, with the first of his six goals. Kip Fulks and Matt Shearer both scored twice during the early barrage, while Fred Jenner, Jeff Wills and Paul Cantebene added single tallies.

The Power finished the half with a nine-goal advantage, 14-5, thanks to Josh Sims' goal 2:08 before the intermission. Roy Colsey, who scored twice in the second stanza, brought New York to life in the third, burning Washington's penalty-killing line for two goals in 23 seconds, and four during the 15-minute span. Colsey also assisted on an even-strength tally by Kris Bryde as the Saints closed to within four at 17-13.

The score stood at 19-15 with 9:28 left to play, before Washington's Gait brothers punctuated the win with a four-goal run. Paul scored his fifth and sixth of the game, and Gary his second and third.

Paul Gait was the game's high scorer with 10 points (6 4). Gary Gait added five assists to his hat trick, and Cantebene had two goals and six assists.

Colsey dominated the New York offense, with six goals. Rusty Kruger finished with two goals and three assists, and rookie Gavin Prout once again came through as a playmaker, setting up six goals and scoring one.

Devin Dalep and Erik Miller split time in the Washington goal. Dalep stopped 22 first-half shots to post his fifth win of the season. New York starter Gord Nash finished with 24 saves, also through the first two quarters, and the loss.
