BULLDOGS LOSE 6-5 IN OVERTIME IN SARNIA

A wild Thanksgiving Monday afternoon matinee in Sarnia that saw the Hamilton Bulldogs drop a 6-5 overtime decision to the Sting.

The Sting were all over the Bulldogs and took a 4-0 lead in the opening period.  That included two power-play goals, one coming after Hamilton’s Navrin Mutter was assessed a 5-minute match penalty for a slew-foot. Sarnia out-shot the Bulldogs 17-7 in the opening 20 minutes.

It was a much different story in the second period as the Bulldogs got their offense in gear. Isaac Nurse (3) and Connor Roberts (1) scored thirty-two seconds a part to cut the Sting lead to 4-2. Sarnia got one back short-handed to make it 5-2 before Justin Lemcke (1) scored on the power-play late to make it 5-3 for the home team after two periods. The Bulldogs had the edge on the shot-clock in the second period 21-17.

Hamilton didn’t let up in the 3rd period as Brandon Saigeon (3) scored on the power-play to cut the Sarnia lead to 5-4 with the comeback completed as Isaac Nurse (4) scored his second of the game to make it 5-5 and send the game into overtime.

No miracle ending to this one as Adam Ruzicka (7) slipped one under the arm of Bulldogs goalie Kaden Fulcher at 1:12 of the extra period to make the final score 6-5 Sarnia.

Sting goal scorers were Brady Hinz (4), Anthony Salinitri (2), Jordan Kyrou (3), Sean Josling (1) and Ryan McGregor (2).

Sarnia out-shot the Bulldogs 46-40.

3-Stars:

  1. Adam Ruzicka (SAR)
  2. Franco Sproviero (SAR)
  3. Isaac Nurse (HAM)

Hamilton’s season record is now 2-1-1-2 while Sarnia improves to 6-1.

The Bulldogs are back in action on Friday October 13th when they travel to Oshawa to face the Generals at 7:35 pm.
