BULLDOGS END 2016 IN STYLE WITH A NEW YEAR’S EVE SHOOT-OUT WIN IN ERIE

The Hamilton Bulldogs closed out 2016 by finishing off a home and home series sweep against the top ranked Otters in Erie Saturday night with a 2-1 shoot-out win.

Newcomer, Dawson Carty made his Bulldogs debut with the goalie busy making 10 saves in a scoreless first period. 

The Otters opened the scoring in the second period on a power-play at 12:33, with Darren Raddysh firing a long range slapper past Carty. However, the Bulldogs responded with a power-play goal of their own. Matthew Strome (18) scored at 15:07 when he went to the net and deposited a rebound. Niki Petti and Matt Luff picked up the assists.

The second period ended 1-1.

Both teams traded power-play opportunities in the third, but neither club was able to capitalize sending the game to overtime.

Erie out-shot Hamilton 25-22 in regulation time.

The Otters out-shot the Bulldogs 3-0 in O-T, but couldn’t beat Carty, so the game went to a shoot-out. The Bulldogs prevailed in the skills competition after getting goals from Matthew Strome, Michael Cramarossa and the game winner off the stick of Will Bitten.

Hamilton was 1-4 on the power-play while Erie’s league best power-play went 1-6.

The Bulldogs season record improves to 16-14-3-2. They’re now 10-7 on the road.

Hamilton plays New Year’s Day in Peterborough before returning home to take on the Mississauga Steelheads on Wednesday January 4th at FirstOntario Centre at 7 pm.
