The Sudbury Wolves played their second game in as many nights as they visited the Owen Sound Attack at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre Saturday. The Attack came out strong, as they solidified a win in their home opener with a 3-0 final over the Wolves.
A quick start to the game for the Attack as Mitchell Russell scored just over a minute into the game. The goal came off a bad bounce behind the net, as Russell picked up the puck surprising McGrath.
The Attack’s defence continued to shut down the Wolves as they held them to five shots through the period. Former wolf, Alan Lyszczarczyk, connected with Kaleb Pearson and Trenton Bourque to extend their lead to 2-0.
Both netminders, Jake McGrath and Mack Guzda, stood solid in their respective nets fending each shot sent their way. It was a stronger period for the Wolves, as they came out with a spark outshooting the Attack 12-7 throughout the frame. Despite a number of quality opportunities for the Wolves, it was a scoreless second period.
The teams went back and forth in the third period, but the Wolves were unable to find the back of the net. With the Wolves net empty, Kevin Hancock solidified the win for the Attack to end the game with a 3-0 final. Final shots on net were 26-25 in favour of the Attack.
The Sudbury Wolves will finish their opening road swing on Thursday in Barrie as they take on the Colts at 7:30pm before returning home for the hope opener on Friday. Fans can follow the game by listening live on mixlr.com/sudburywolves or on CKLU 96.7.
