Bulldogs Knock off Top Ranked Greyhounds
HAMILTON, ONTARIO. The Hamilton Bulldogs won the first installment of the "Battle of Conference Leaders" with a convincing 5-2 win over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Sunday afternoon at FirstOntario Centre..
It was a pretty tight checking start to the game with the Bulldogs getting on the board thanks to a Ben Gleason (6) goal just before the mid-way mark of the 1st period. It took the Greyhounds more than ten minutes to get their first shot on goal, with shot number 2 tying the game on the power-play 1-1.
The Bulldogs took over the game in the 2nd period with four unanswered goals from Isaac Nurse (13), Matthew Strome (30), Will Bitten (19) and Mackenzie Entwistle (8) to take a 5-1 lead after forty minutes.
Hamilton did a great job in shutting down the highest scoring team in the OHL in the 3rd period allowing a late goal by the Hounds to make the final 5-2.
1) Matthew Strome (HAM) 2) Mackenzie Entwistle (HAM) 3) Isaac Nurse (HAM)
Hamilton heads north next weekend with stops in Sault Ste. Marie on Friday February 16th and in Sudbury the following night before returning home on Monday February 19th for a Family Day game against Owen Sound at 2 pm.
