Attack Trampled by the Knights

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Owen Sound lost 6-2 at home to London as Knights special teams were 'special'

The Owen Sound Attack couldn't make it back-to-back upsets as they lost at home to London 6-2 in OHL action on Saturday night.

London's special teams caused the Attack headaches all night as the Knights scored twice on the powerplay and also once shorthanded.

Canadian World Junior hopeful and Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Josh Anderson scored twice for the Knights and set up one more in the victory.

Max Domi had a goal and two assists while Bo Horvat, Kyle Platzer and Mitch Marner also tallied for London.

Attack captain Zack Nastasiuk scored a highlight reel goal while Kyle Hope added the other for Owen Sound.

Jack Flinn stopped 43 shots in the loss. His counterpart, Jake Patterson, kicked out 35 shots in the victory.

Bayshore Broadcasting Sports Director Fred Wallace says the Attack thought they had a lead 3-2 but the goal was waved off due to an offside.  Seven minutes later, Marner would score the game winner for London.

The Attack split the weekend - winning in Guelph Friday - and losing to London last night.

They will hit the road to face another MidWest Division rival - the Kitchener Rangers - on Friday.
