Last night the Barrie Colts lost to the Pete's in Peterborough 6-3. It was Ruan Badenhorst second start as a Barrie Colt since the news of Mac Blackwood being injured.
First Period: The first period ended with only one goal. The Pete's would get on the board first following a Masin goal at 10:52 seconds in the period.
The Colts outshot Peterborough 15 to 11 in the frame but were unable to capitalize once on any of the 5 power play opportunities they were given. The first period ended with the Colts trailing 1-0.
Second Period: Peterborough didn't wait long in the second to extend their lead 3-0. First with a goal by Matt Spencer and shortly after Hunter Garlent would get his first of the night to put the Pete's up 3-0. Both goals were scored on the Power Play.
The Colts would get on the board shortly after Justin Scott scored his 8th goal of the season for the Colts to finally get them on the board. His goal was short handed.
On the same penalty kill, the Pete's would make the Colts pay when Stefano would score to increase the Pete's lead 4-1.
The Colts saw some chances on the Power Play and this time they would make the Pete's pay. First, Mangiapane would score to get his 8th goal of the season, then Lemieux would score shortly after to get his 8th also on the season. Before the end of the frame the Pete's would score one more time with a goal from MacDonald. Colts are trailing 5-3 headed into the 3rd period.
The Colts were heavily outshot in this period 19-11.
Third Period: Third period was pretty uneventful. Petes had out shot the Colts 16-10 and really made Badenhorst stand on his head. Only goal scored would be an empty netter giving the Petes the 6-3 win.
The Colts were outshot 46-36.
The Colts finish this weekend with 0-3 record, gaining only one point in an overtime loss to Guelph on Saturday night.
- Ruan Badenhorst saved 40 of 45 shots he faced.
- The Colts only managed to kill 1 penalty of 5 they had to kill. Ouch..
- 2 of the Colts goals scored were on the Power Play of 8 chances. Not terrible, but no doubt special teams were a huge hand in deciding who won this game. The Colts need a lot of work on their special teams.
