Josh MacDonald scores shootout winner as Barrie Colts edge Owen Sound Attack 4-3

BARRIE, Ont. - Josh MacDonald scored the lone goal in the shootout as the Barrie Colts defeated the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Winnipeg Jets prospect Mark Scheifele and Zach Hall each had a goal and an assist for Barrie (2-2-0).

MacDonald had the other marker while Steven Beyers chipped in with a pair of assists.

Daniel Catenacci, Daniel Zweep and Zach Nastasiuk replied for the Attack (2-0-1), who lost their first game this season.

Both teams struck with the man advantage. Barrie went 2-for-9 on the power play while the Attack finished at 1-for-6.

Mathias Niederberger turned aside 21 pucks for the victory.

Owen Sound's Jordan Binnington stopped 36 shots in a losing cause.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
