Sedley's 1st Not Enough in 4-2 Loss to Greyhounds

December 13, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Owen Sound Attack News Release

The Owen Sound Attack began their northern swing on Friday the 13th at the GFL Memorial Gardens against the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. The Greyhounds came into the game winners of four in a row while the Attack had lost their previous two by one goal margins. Coming into tonight's game, the Attack had lost the second most one-goal games in the league, and had gone to overtime the most in the OHL. With Al Letang in Europe for World Junior preparations, Jordan Hill gave Mack Guzda the nod in the Owen Sound net while overage netminder Bailey Brkin started for the Soo.

The first period began with almost six minutes of uninterrupted play, but Owen Sound had the first big chances of the game. Deni Goure set Sam Sedley up beautifully in the slot where he appeared to ring a shot off the junction of the crossbar and the post. It wasn't until the whistle at the six minute mark of the frame that the play went to review. Upon review, it was found that Sedley had indeed found the back of the net for his first career Ontario Hockey League goal. The Attack found themselves in penalty problems throughout the frame, taking three minors in the first twenty minutes. It was the final opportunity when the Greyhounds capitalized. Zack Trott score his 10th of the season to even things up at 1 apiece heading to the first intermission. Shots on goal after the first period were 12-11 for the Attack.

Penalty issues continued to plague the Attack throughout the second period. Owen Sound would commit five infractions in the frame, leading to two more power play goals for the Greyhounds. Cole MacKay would capitalize on a 5 on 3 scenario, and Trott added his second of the game on a power play chance just minutes later. Things went upside down for the Attack late in the period while the Bears were on the power play. Matthew Struthers tried to clear the puck from behind the net, but it bounced off Joe Carroll and into the Attack goal for one of the strangest shorthanded goals of the year. Owen Sound trailed 4-1 after two, with shots on goal in favour of the Greyhounds 25-20.

Matt Philip started the third period with another potential reviewable play, but it was determined that this one ricocheted off the crossbar and not off the inside of the net. Owen Sound found themselves on another penalty kill at the two minute mark, but they were able to kill off their 6th shorthanded deficit of the night to keep hope alive. With less than ten minutes remaining in the game, the calls started to go against the Greyhounds. Barret Kirwin would convert on the power play to cut the deficit to 2 with just over five minutes remaining in regulation. Josh Samanski almost became the second Attacker to score his first career OHL goal, but Brkin denied him on a breakaway with 4 minutes remaining. Owen Sound added pressure late but they couldn't find the required goals needed and would fall 4-2 after outshooting the Greyhounds 16-7 in the third.

Sam Sedley earned the Hatten Home Building Centre Hardest Working Player honours. The Owen Sound Bug Juice North Stars Three Stars were swept by the Greyhounds with Trott, MacKay and Brkin earning the honours.

The Owen Sound Attack continue their road trip tomorrow night in Sudbury against the Wolves. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. You can tune into the game on Rogers Grey County Channel 53, 560 CFOS Bear Radio or OHLLive.com.
