KAWARTHA LAKES: The Lindsay Muskies headed down to Buffalo, for a rare Wednesday night match, and at the end of a penalty filled affair, the Jr Sabres skated away with a 7-1 victory.
The goals came fast and furious in the first period. The Sabres jumped out to a 2-0 lead, on goals by Chase Nicholson, at 6:17, and Trevor Peca, at 7:19. Adam Tretowicz assisted on the first, while Declan McDonnell and Nathaniel Berke grabbed helpers on the second. Patrick Goan’s 5th goal of the year, at 8:15, from Brendan Tomilson and Braydon Leeking, got the Fish back into the game, but before the period would end, Peca would score from Berke, and then Tretowicz would make it 5-1, from Nicholson and Spencer Smith.
Things did not start off any better for Lindsay in the second, as Nick Kent scored a power play goal, from Anthony Hora, at 1:20, and then, with just 1:47 left in the period, the Jr. Sabres would grab another power play goal, as Matthew Jakubowski would score from Matthew Stanek and Kent.
Nicholson picked up his second of the game, at 6:20 of the third, from Tretowicz and Spencer. The game then saw a ton of penalties which, in the end, saw only two spare players left on each bench. An incredible, 13 misconduct penalties were handed out, between the two teams during the game, a number of them at the midway point of the third, serving as a convenient way to make sure those players never made it back to the ice.
