It was a tough game for the Sudbury Wolves Saturday night against the Owen Sound Attack, as the Attack came out on top with a 7-3 win. Kyle Rhodes played an excellent game for the Wolves, as he was involved in all three Wolves goals putting up a three-point performance with a goal and two assists.
The Attack got out to a quick start as Sean Durzi opened the scoring two minutes in when he got a shot through the short-side of Marshall Frappier. Durzi also went on to have a three-point game, scoring two goals and adding an assist. Jonah Gadjovich had two goals in the frame with a goal from Kyle Rhodes sandwiched in between. Rhodes’ released a quick wrist shot that beat rookie goaltender, Mack Guzda. The Attack lead 3-1 after the first period.
The second period was much quieter as Sean Durzi scored the only goal just over a minute into the period. Drake Pilon had an incredible chance after a pass from Darian Pilon, but his shot went just off the stick of Durzi and over the net.
A total of 5 goals were scored in the third period. Darian Pilon started things off when he cut the Attack lead to 4-2 when he made an excellent move on a breakaway. A minute later, the Attack restored their three-goal lead as Matthew Struthers recorded a short-handed goal. The Wolves would add one more from Cole Candella when his shot from the blue line beat Guzda on the power play. Kevin Hancock and Brady Lyle both added goals for the Attack in the second half of the period to seal a 7-3 final, with final shots on goal 44-21 in favour of the Attack.
