KAWARTHA LAKES: The Lindsay Muskies got three points each from Noah Dollo and Braydon Leeking Sunday afternoon, but it was not enough, as the team was overpowered by the Wellington Dukes, by a score of 7-3.
The Dukes picked up the only goal of the first period when Declan Carlile beat Muskies goaltender Tyler Richardson at 14:25. The goal was assisted by Jeffrey Burridge and Nelson Powers.
The Muskies drew even, midway through the second, when defenceman Ben Sellars scored his 5th of the season at 9:26, from Dollo and Leeking. The Dukes responded with a pair of quick goals, to go up by a score of 3-1. Eric Uba scored at 10:01, from Carlile and Mason Snell, then, just 1:45 later, Powers scored from Burridge. The Muskies closed out the period on a strong note though, when Leeking scored his 11th of the year, from Dollo and Erich Roeder at 17:58, to draw the Muskies back to within one heading into the third.
The Dukes came out strong in the third, as Andrew Rinaldi scored at 1:05, from Keegan Ferguson. At 4:08, the Muskies were awarded a penalty shot that would have made it a one goal game again, but Duke’s netminder, Jonah Capriotti, made the save to keep the Muskies at bay. Rinaldo scored his second of the period just over a minute later from Mitchell Martan and Ferguson, then Martan scored from Rinaldi and Jackson Arcan at 11:56, to make it 6-2. Just under a minute later, Colin Doyle rounded out the Dukes scoring for the afternoon at 12:48, from Ben Evans and Ferguson. Dollo’s 16th of the season made the final score 7-3 at 13:57 from Leeking and Sellars.
The Muskies are now off until Friday night, when they return home to host Stouffville.
