Petes Recover from Friday Night With 6-3 Win Against Frontenacs

Kenneth Andersen & Jess Van Staalduinen

Sunday afternoon the Petes looked to rebound from their Friday night performance against the Kingston Frontenacs and return to the win column.

Although the maroon and white suited up for yet another game with a lengthy list of injured players, this did not deter their tenacity and speed on the ice. Bobby Dow put the Electric City Kids on the scoreboard for the first time in the game converting a pass from Jonathan Ang into his third goal of the season.

The Fronts put their foot on the gas and matched the hometown boys with ten shots at the end of the period, two of which managed to sneak past Wells but were called off by the referees.

Rookie Nick Robertson saw his fourth goal of the season and the Petes’ second of the afternoon while on the power play, beautifully turning a fall into clean possession of the puck and shot from the slot. An increase in physicality and controlled breakouts marked an improved first period from the hometown boys.

Matt Timms was the third Pete to spend time in the sin bin at 19:09 for crosschecking, giving Kingston an extra man to start the second.

Although the Frontenacs were unable to make use of the man advantage, Jacob Brahaney put the visitors on the scoreboard for the first time at the Memorial Sunday afternoon, with the assist being awarded to Brett Neumann.

Matyas Svoboda tallied the Petes third goal of the game in the fourth minute of the period. The momentum didn’t end there for your men in maroon: Nikita Korostelev capitalized on the power play following Jonathan Ang’s calm puck possession, turning his pass into a snipe from the point.

Ang made the scoresheet for the second time at the end of a penalty kill, wheeling end to end and ripping the puck above Helvig’s shoulder confirming the lead for the Petes.

The hometown boys entered the third period with the lead and a score starkly contrasting the previous two games.

The Frontenacs set the tone early on in the third period when Linus Nyman tallied his ninth of the season and Kingston’s second of the game within thirty eight seconds of puck drop.

However Ang responded five minutes later with a shot from inside the circles that squeaked by Kingston’s Bonello, who replaced Helvig in the third period.

Timms took his second penalty of the game at 7:44, however it wasn’t until the Petes were at even strength, when Murray garnered his second of the evening cutting the score in half for Kingston.

The Petes were forced to the penalty kill again at 14:27 when Osmanksi took a tripping penalty, however swift movement from Dylan Wells and a notable block from Alex Black kept the score at par.

The fans were gifted some 6-on-4 hockey in the final minute of the game when Kingston pulled their goalie and were handed their third power play of the period.

However, steady penalty killing by the Petes in the final minutes of the game kept the score: 6-3 and gave the hometown team the win.

Third Star: Nichol (26)

Second Star: Korostelev (25)

First Star: Ang (21)

Hardest Working Player: Denault (22)
