It was a mismatch more than a rematch in Belleville.
Andreas Athanasiou got a goal and two assists to lead the Barrie Colts past the Bulls 5-1 on Saturday night.
This was the first meeting between these two clubs since last season's OHL Eastern Conference Final.
Scott Simmonds' goal gave Belleville (7-19-2-2) a 1-0 lead in the first period.
Then the Colts scored 3 times in the second and 2 more in the third.
Mitchell Theoret, Jonathan Laser, Dylan Corson, and Zach Hall also added goals for the Colts (15-11-1-2).
Barrie outshot Belleville 47-27.
The Colts went 1 for 2 with the man advantage while the Bulls did not score on 4 power play opportunities.
Barrie travels to Ottawa Sunday afternoon to play the 67s.
