Hounds Drop Fifth Straight, Lose 10-2

14

The Greyhounds, after a 6-4 loss just a night earlier at the hands of the Guelph Storm, were looking to end their four game losing skid as Saturday night saw the team faceoff against a strong Windsor Spitfire team. 

The Hounds would drop this one in embarrassing fashion 10-2.

The second game in a short home stand would prove to be important as the team looks to build moment before a road trip sees them take on Sarnia, and two of the league’s top squads in Flint and Sudbury. 

Prior to the game, coach John Dean mentioned that his team needs “to work on structure. Some nights we need to work on our structure when it comes to discipline, sometimes it’s 5 on 5 or 5 on 4.” 

His team responded early. Four minutes into the frame, a loose puck would find its way onto Tye Kartye’s tape who ripped it home for the first lead of the game. 

The Hounds would only enjoy the lead for a minute as Foudy would find the back of the net for Spitfire, and then momentum would continue to swing into their favour.

A double minor against Marc Boudreau would be just 19 seconds away from being killed off completely, but Luke Boka would manage to finish off a pass from Kyle MacDonald to secure the 2-1 lead.

The Spitfire would manage to tally on two more markers before the end of the opening twenty minutes. Daniel D’Amico managed to backhand a beautiful goal over top of Propp and just under the bar, while Boka would net his second of the period after a defensive collapse. 

The Hounds defense would need to step up big time to latch onto a glimmer of hope. The second period would start with the Hounds doing their best to assert some physical dominance. 

Unfortunately it would be all for naught, as Boka would not need more than half a game to complete his hat trick, while Foudy would tally his second of the game in the opening two minutes of the frame. The game would sit at 6-1 and would only get uglier as the penalties would continue to pile on for the Hounds.

With Carroll in the box, Purboo would deflect a shot on net that would easily find the top corner. Propp would get yanked and Taylor would fill in for goal tending duties for the remainder of the evening.

The Hounds would stop the bleeding only slightly as they would start to dictate the speed of play. Pytlik would get on the board after an excellent effort from Ryan O’Rourke to make it 7-2. After every whistle, the Hounds and Spitfire would push each other around, with the Hounds visibly frustrated. The score would remain the same heading into the third.

This period would take the longest before it saw a goal, five minutes and fourty seconds when Corcoran potted his fourth of the year on the power play to make it 8-2.

MacKay would try and spark the team with a hit that was deemed bad enough to eject him for the remainder of the game. Five minutes and a game misconduct. Clearly frustrated, but unfortunately not the right play.

Maggio and Cuylle would also put in a goal a piece to bring the total to 10.

The Hounds can sit on this loss for a few days before hitting the ice again against the Sarnia Sting on Friday.

  1. Just a word about the refs…. look at who is one of the most, if not THE most penalized teams. And look at their record. Barrie leads that category almost every year. Barrie continues to win games no matter how lopsided the # of penalties called are…because they have an uber-effective PK! They pay no never mind to being whistled down. Being called for penalties is NOT the problem…..no PK is!!!

  2. They need to look back at what they did in the first 4 games which they won. I suspect at that time they played their hearts out to earn a spot on the team. Perhaps now they feel they have it made and do not need to put out as much. I would certainly hope that is not true. It looks like they will need this week to get BACK TO BASICS.

  3. Quit putting the blame on the coach or the refs… This is a team sport and so the blame should fall on the team as they didn’t play well… Blame the whole team when they lose and praise the whole team when they win but don’t blame the coach or one particular player when it was the lack of effort of the whole team

  4. all the game misconducts, double minor penalties, ejected from the game…they are undisciplined, hot headed and reckless. they have some work to do. i hope they figure it out soon. watching them get their asses handed to them was hard to watch.

  5. Refs weren’t great. However even before that the hounds were a lazy, individual team with no effort. I commend both goalies tonight for keeping it even that close. Calisti has no business playing in the O. 5 of those goals were on him.

  6. This is one to forget.
    Nothing has changed Southern teams know the refs are not going to call them and can get away with almost anything.
    Been happening for years.
    Taylor should of started this game.
    Not sure what this decision was all about.
    Forget this one guy’s 10-2 or 3-2 doesn’t matter both losses.

  7. It sure would help if the refs and Iinesman get into the game maybe they should see an optometrist to get their eyes checked I could give them a name of a very good one with our hounds it is just too bad our people who draft kids dont look for big boys we are always getting hammered by the big boys we cant expect our boys to take all of it and not hit back , no.matter if they are down in the game they DONT QUIT THEY KEEP ON TRYING very proud of you guys 🏒🏒🏒
