Coming off of a sloppy start to Saturday’s matchup against the Wolves which eventually cost them two points, the Hounds were back at it Sunday afternoon against the Peterborough Petes.
The Greyhounds would not fair better Sunday, dropping the game 4-3.
Saturday was rough on the Hounds, who out of the gate allowed four goals in the first period and saw starting goalie Christian Propp chased from the crease in the 4-3 loss.
In relief, Ethan Taylor made 18 stops, and was also looked to Sunday to man the net.
Joe Carrol was excellent through the first period, notching the Hounds opening goal followed by a beautiful pass to find Peca who put away the tying goal. Dustin Hutton would put up the first tally for the Petes, followed by Cameron Butler. The Petes had two separate leads the Hounds would take away and would head into the second period tied at two a piece.
The second period would have momentum swing in the direction of the Petes, who would manage to net two goals. Max Grondin would open the second frame scoring, and Nick Robertson (who is a forward) would capitalize on his penalty shot opportunity increasing the lead to two goals. A 4-2 lead for the visitors would be taken into the third period.
It would take almost 19 minutes for the scoreboard to change, as the Hounds pull Taylor for the extra man. The Hounds managed to keep control of the play and with shot after shot directed at the Petes net, a rebound popped out in front for Kerins to easily bury.
Ultimately that would be as close as the Hounds would get, dropping their second straight game 4-3.
The next Hounds home game takes place October 16th, when the Hounds take on the Saginaw Spirit. Before that the Hounds head on their first road trip of the year with stops in Guelph, Owen Sound and North Bay.
