BULLDOGS BEAT KINGSTON 4-3 IN A SHOOT-OUT

The Bulldogs won a thriller Saturday night at FirstOntario Centre as they defeated the Kingston Frontenacs 4-3 in a shoot-out.

There was no scoring in the first period even though Hamilton out-shot the visitors 16-3 and dominated play.

Kingston scored on a power-play at 3:57 of the second period to take a 1-0 lead after forty minutes

The offenses kicked into high gear in the third. The Frontenacs took a 2-0 lead at 2:25 only to see the Bulldogs Will Bitten (3) and Brandon Saigeon (4) score sixteen seconds apart to tie the score 2-2 by the 3:24 mark. Kingston re-took the lead at 12:28 only to see Saigeon (5) score again to tie the game 3-3 and send it into overtime.

The Bulldogs were all over the Frontenacs in OT thanks to a power-play, but couldn’t score despite out-shooting the opposition 8-2, meaning a shoot-out would be needed to decide a winner.

It took five rounds, but Will Bitten and Matthew Strome scored for Hamilton while Kaden Fulcher stopped four of the five Kingston shooters.

Hamilton out-shot the Frontenacs in regulation and OT 52-25.

The Kingston goal scorers in regulation were Ryan Cranford (3), Jacob Paquette (2) and Sam Field (4).

3 Stars:

  1. Matthew Strome (HAM)
  2. Brandon Saigeon (HAM)
  3. Jeremy Helvig (KGN)

With the win, the Bulldogs season record improves to 4-1-1-2 while Kinston is now 5-2-0-2.

It’s a short turnaround as Hamilton goes for the weekend sweep Sunday afternoon at 2 pm against the Battalion in North Bay.
