The Goderich Flyers still have life in their Western Junior C Hockey League opening-round playoff series, but their condition could be critical after a 10-0 Kincardine win at Memorial Arena Saturday.
The Bulldogs lead the best-of-seven series, two games to none.
Kincardine's Eric Langridge accounted for a natural hat-trick.
Former Goderich Sailor Shawn Moore opened the scoring 12 seconds into the first period.
It was his first of two goals and five total points in the victory.
Shawn Rooke, Tyler Fregona, Mike Osadca, Logan Freiburger and Shane Vollmer scored one goal each while Bulldogs' netminder Jacob Hutchings made 22 saves for the shutout.
Flyers' assistant coach Doug Cruickshank says his club showed a lack of competitiveness and became undisciplined in the second and third periods.
He says the Flyers don't have much time to think about the loss, with a 2pm start for Game Three Sunday at the Davidson Centre.
In Saturday's other Western Junior C post-season play, McKenzie Carter scored the overtime winner in a 2-1 Mitchell victory over Wingham.
The Hawks lead the best-of-seven, two games to one.
Mitchell Pike fired home the game-winner in Hanover's 5-2 victory over Mount Forest, to give the Barons a 2-1 edge in that best-of-seven.
