BULLDOGS KNOCK OFF TOP RANKED GREYHOUNDS

The Hamilton Bulldogs won the first installment of the “Battle of Conference Leaders” Sunday afternoon with a convincing 5-2 win over the top ranked Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

It was a pretty tight checking start to the hockey game with the Bulldogs getting a couple of good chancers early, one that led to a Ben Gleason (6) goal just before the mid-way mark of the 1st period. It took the visiting 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.

Matthew Strome and Mackenzie Entwistle both finished the game with a goal and three assists as the Bulldogs put a halt to a 2-game losing slide while ending the Soo’s 8-game win streak.

Hamilton out-shot Sault Ste. Marie 32-31.

Greyhounds goal scorers were Boris Katchouk (35) and Hayden Verbeek (21).

3 STARS:

1)  Matthew Strome (HAM)

2)  Mackenzie Entwistle (HAM)

3) Isaac Nurse (HAM)

With the win, the Bulldogs season record improved to 34-14-3-3.

Hamilton heads north next weekend with stops in Sault Ste. Marie on Friday February 16th and in Sudbury on Saturday February 17th before returning home on Monday February 19th for a Family Day game against Owen Sound at 2 pm.
