There was quite a bit of pressing by the Greyhounds in the first period but it would be a little less than 7 minutes into the second before the Soo would get on the scoreboard. From that time the Greyhounds continued to control the outcome of the game despite a late surge by the Spitfires.

The third period the Greyhounds pressed hard. Zach Senyshyn would put the Greyhounds up by one at the 1:41 mark. Jared McCann would add to the Soo’s lead almost six minutes later. DeAngelo would get his second goal of the night with a shot like a rocket while the Greyhounds were on the power play.

Later in the period DeAngelo would miss the net when Fotinos came out to play the puck but Jean Dupuy would score into the empty net to make the score 5 to 1 for the Greyhounds.

The Spitfires started to make a comeback in the last five minutes of the period and managed to score twice on Halverson with the first goal going to Cristiano DiGiacinto and the second to Logan Brown.

Windsor pulled Fotinos for an extra attacker but failed to decrease the lead and at the end of the game the Greyhounds won by a score of 5 to 3.

Next action for the Greyhounds is when the London Knights come to town on Sunday with a puck drop time of 3:00 pm
