Owen Sound Attack 7 Hamilton Bulldogs 5
Attack 7 Bulldogs 5
Jonah Gadjovich and Markus Phillips both scored twice for the Attack.
Petrus Palmu had goal and 4 points in the win.
With his goal Palmu established a franchise record for the fastest goal to start a period, scoring just 4 seconds into the 2nd period.
The previous Owen Sound record was held by Jim Brown. On February 21, 1992, Brown scored 8 seconds into the 2nd period at Kitchener.
Ethan Szypula opened the scoring for the Attack 83 seconds into the game.
However, Hamilton, who had won their first two games of the year and put up 7 goals in each victory, responded with 2 goals in 70 seconds to take a 2-1 lead.
The goals by Matthew Strome and Michael Cramarossa chased Attack starter Bradley Van Schubert from the goal.
The netminding alteration seemingly sparked the Attack who scored 5 straight goals to take a 6-2 lead.
Rookie Nick Pryce was among the goal scorers in that spree as he counted his first career OHL marker.
Trailing by 4, the Bulldogs reeled off 3 quick goals by captain Justin Lemcke, Strome's 2nd and Trent Fox to make it a 1 goal game with 11 minutes remaining.
Phillips scored his 2nd of the night at 14:23 to secure the 7-5 victory, the first OHL win for rookie netminder Riley Daniels
The Attack move to 1 & 2 on the season while Hamilton falls to 2 & 1.
Saturday, the Attack host the Guelph Storm in a divisional confrontation at the Harry Lumley-Bayshore Community Centre.
Hamilton will be at Guelph on Friday night.
