Owen Sound 3 – Guelph 2

OWEN SOUND – The Attack (17-11-1-2) scored a pair of third period goals to come from behind and beat Guelph (14-9-3-4) Tuesday night, picking up their third straight victory with the 3-2 win.

Nate Schnarr (16) and Liam Hawel (12) gave the Guelph Storm a 2-0 first period lead, before Owen Sound chipped away at the deficit.

Kevin Hancock (26), Sean Durzi (1) and Kaleb Pearson (6) scored for the bears, with Pearson netting the game winner with 8:20 left in the third period.

It was fitting that Durzi would score his first of the season, considering the Attack were giving away Durzi bobbleheads to fans prior to the game.

Andrew MacLean had another strong performance for Owen Sound, stopping 44 of the 46 shots as the Attack were outshot 46-39. Anthony Popovich made 36 saves in the loss for Guelph as the Storm dropped their third straight contest. Owen Sound now sits seven points back of first place London in the Midwest Division.
