BULLDOGS CAN’T CONTAIN THE COLTS

The Hamilton Bulldogs hopes of securing 1st place in the Eastern Conference will have to wait at least one more night after a 6-3 loss to the Barrie Colts Wednesday night at FirstOntario Centre.

The visiting Colts got the jump on the Bulldogs early and that led to several chances followed by back-to-back goals 49-seconds apart and a 2-0 lead after twenty minutes.

Barrie went up 3-0 early in the 2nd period before the Bulldogs got on the scoreboard at 13:57 as Robert Thomas (23) hammered one home to cut the lead to 3-1 after two periods.

The momentum continued for Hamilton in the 3rd as goals from Ryan Moore (18) at 0:51 and Isaac Nurse (16) tied the game at 3 with just over 8-minutes left. Penalties hurt the Bulldogs as back-to-back power-play goals by the Colts put an end to any hopes of a comeback as a 5-3 lead grew to 6-3 with a late empty net goal.

Hamilton out-shot Barrie 46-28.

The win gives the Colts the Central Division title after a last place finish last season.

Colts goal scorers were Andrei Svechnikov (35), Zachary Magwood (23), Dmitry Sokolov (44) and Lucas Chiodo (27, 28)

3 STARS:

1)  Dmitry Sokolov (BAR)

2)  Andrei Svechnikov (BAR)

3)  Lucas Chiodo (BAR)

The Bulldogs play host to the Niagara IceDogs on Fan Appreciation night Saturday March 10th at FirstOntario Centre at 7 pm.
