The Hamilton Bulldogs ended their three game weekend with a 6-3 loss to the Peterborough Petes Sunday afternoon at FirstOntario Centre.
Hamilton was the only team to get on the board in the 1st period as a wrist shot from Nicolas Mattinen (8) found it’s way through a crowd.
Peterborough tied the game 1-1 early in the 2nd period before the Bulldogs scored twice as Mackenzie Entwistle (11) tipped one home at 7:04 followed by Navrin Mutter (2) jumping on a rebound at 14:51. It looked Hamilton would take that 3-1 lead to the dressing room, but the Petes scored in the final minute to make it a 3-2 hockey game.
It was all Peterborough in the 3rd period as they scored four unanswered goals for the 6-3 win.
Bulldogs forward Brandon Saigeon recorded one assist and now has 200 career OHL points.
Hamilton outshot Peterborough 32-23 as Petes rookie goalie Tye Austin stopped 29 shots to record his first OHL win.
Peterborough’s goal scorers were Austin Osmanski (2), Max Grondin (4,5,6), Liam Kirk (7) and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev (2).
With the loss Hamilton’s season record drops to 11-13-1 while Peterborough’s improves to 15-11.
