NorthStars 10 Regals 6

Hayden Coulter, Spencer Elder, Brody Caskenette & Quinton Maddock each tallied twice for the Junior NorthStars.

Coulter's first goal tied the game at on a power play 6 minutes into the 2nd period. His second marker 5 minutes later gave Owen Sound a 2 goal cushion as they held Guelph off the scoreboard for 36 minutes from late in the 1st to midway through the 3rd period.

Dustin Lantz & Brady Stewart also scored for Owen Sound who move to 11 points on the season and now have possession of the 1st Wild Card in the Western Conference.

The Junior NorthStars have a 1 point margin over St Catharines & Niagara, but both St Catharines ( 3 less games ) & Niagara ( 2 less games ) have games in hand on Owen Sound.

Furthermore, the final 5 opponents for the Junior NorthStars are all playoff bound squads ( Elora twice, Orangeville, & Windsor ) plus only one of their remaining 5 games is on home floor.

The loss for the Regals hampered their playoff aspirations as they sit with 7 points & 6 games to play.

Guelph started well with Reed Kurtz & Mitchell Zulian scoring in the first 2 & 1/2 minutes to grab a 2-0 lead.

However, after leading 4-3 at the end of the first, the Regals were denied for a lengthy stretch by Owen Sound netminder Wes Hamilton.

Kurtz & Jayden Bushey each scored twice for Guelph while Shane Halliwell had the other goal for Guelph on a power play

Owen Sound is off until Tuesday when they travel to Orangeville for a divisional game against the Northmen.

Guelph will entertain Orangeville tomorrow night.
