At the start of the game the Greyhounds didn’t have both engines fired. Turnovers and slip ups were the downfall of two quick goals later on in the first period.
To start the first period off Windsor would get on the board at the 1:47 mark on a tip in goal by Ryan Foss to give the Spitfires a one goal lead.
Blake Speers would tie it up for the Greyhounds at 5:03 by driving hard to the net and then crashed into the end boards. With David Miller in the penalty box for Hooking Windsor’s Trevor Murphy would score a power play goal at 6:32. The initial shot was stopped by Halverson but somehow the puck trickled into the net.
Colton White fell when trying to get out of the Greyhounds end which caused a turnover and was picked up by Spitfires Ryan Moore and Moore would get the final goal of the first period at 7:45 to give Windsor a 3 to 1 lead over the Greyhounds. After the goal the Greyhounds replaced Halverson with Raaymakers.
The Greyhounds got the other engine running for the second period with the first goal by Bryan Moore who got a beauty of a pass from Guertler to cut the Spitfires lead to 1. Just after the goal was scored a fight broke out at center ice between Ganly and DiGiacinto.
With some quick passing and an open side Jared McCann would score to tie the game at the 8:21 mark. In the second period the Greyhounds outshot the Spitfires 16 to 5.
For the third period the Greyhounds kept the engines fired. McCann missed an opportunity on the open side of the net around the 2:15 mark of the period. Zachary Senyshyn would pass the puck back to Speers to give the Greyhounds their first lead in the game at 6:48.
With Windsor’s Lewis in the penalty box Slater Doggett would get the jump on Charley Graaskamp, Doggett would get hooked on the breakaway and was awarded a Penalty Shot in which he deked Raaymakers and the Spitfires had the game tied at 4.
Bryan Moore, with a lot of traffic in front of the net, would get the go ahead power play goal for the Greyhounds at 11:28. Blake Speers would get his 3rd goal of the game at 11:53 from a pass from McCann giving the Greyhounds a 6 to 4 lead over the Spitfires with no other scoring.
