Colts Score Late to Beat Attack

Barrie | by Ken Hashizume  

Mangiapane, Scott and Palmu each scored twice in Colts 5-3 win over Attack.

The Barrie Colts continue their winning ways at home.

Defenceman Rasmus Andersson broke a 3-3 tie with his third period goal to lift the Colts past the Owen Sound Attack 5-3 in the OHL on Saturday night.

It was the Colts fourth win in a row and 16 straight at home with a least a point (15-0-0-1).

The loss snaps the Attack's three-game winning streak.

Justin Scott and Andrew Mangiapane had two goals apiece as the Colts.

Mangiapane would give Barrie a 1-0 with his short-handed goal in the first period.

With the Colts up 2-1, Petrus Palmu would tie it for Owen Sound late in the second period.

He then gave the Attack a 3-2 lead with his second goal of the game 36 seconds into the 3rd period.

Mangiapane's second goal of the game would even things up at 3-3 before Andersson scored the eventual game-winner 3:27 later.

OHL leading scorer Kevin Labanc had a goal and an assist for the Colts. He is now one point shy of Sheldon Keefe for tying the franchise record of 121 points in a season.

Tyler MacArthur had the other Attack marker.

Mackenzie Blackwood had 32 saves for the Colts (39-20-0-2) while Michael McNiven finished with 20 for the Attack (30-21-7-3).

Power Plays saw Owen Sound go 0-for-5, Barrie went 0-for-1.

In fact, the Colts scored two shorthanded goals in the game and have scored six shorthanded against Owen Sound this season.

Barrie has a total of 23 shorthanded goals in this OHL season.

Barrie has won all five meetings against Owen Sound this season, and the two teams hit the ice this Wednesday night in Owen Sound.

No team has ever swept their season series.
