Attack 6 IceDogs 5 (OT)

It was a succesful homecoming for re-acquired Attack forward Matthew Struthers.

Struthers who was acquired in a deal with the North Bay Battalion on Monday returned to where he started his OHL career and marked the occasion by snapping in the overtime game winner on a power play for the Attack, capping a 3 point performance

Barret Kirwin and Ethan Burroughs both scored twice for Owen Sound who have won their last 2 outings and move to 28 points on the season

Deni Goure on a power play had the other Attack marker as Owen Sound never trailed in the game, but twice gave up 2 goal leads as Niagata fought back twice to tie the game at 3 and again in the 3rd period to tie the game at 5 and force overtime.

Kyen Sopa had 2 goals and 4 poinys for Niagara who now have points in their 3 outings.

Along with Sopa, Philip Tomasino, Jae Uberti and Andrew Bruder fired solo markers.

Tomasino was penalized in overtime for interfering with Attack defender Brady Lyle on a potential break and was in the penalty box when Struthers scored the game winner.

Tomorrow, Niagara returns home to host the Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds

The Attack are at London on Friday night to face the Knights,
