Sudbury's Joshua Leivo scores twice as Wolves down Petes 4-1 in OHL action

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Joshua Leivo scored twice Thursday to lead the Sudbury Wolves to a 4-1 win over the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League.

Matthew Campagna and Jacob Harris also scored for the Wolves (3-3-0), while Stephen Pierog replied for the Petes (1-4-0).

Taylor Dupuis made 23 saves to earn the win. Andrew D'Agostini made 29 saves in a losing cause for the home side.

Campagna opened the scoring at 2:24 of the first period after Conor Cummins just kept the puck in at the blue-line. Campagna got the puck on a 2-on-1, looked pass then quickly snapped a shot just under the cross bar.

Leivo extended the Subbury lead to two at 2:04 of the second period before Pierog ripped home a rebound from a goal-mouth scramble to get the Petes on the board.

Harris connected at 2:40 of the third to give the Wolves a 3-1 advantage before Leivo wrapped up the scoring early in the third with his second of the night.

The game was delayed for over 15 minutes with about eight minutes to play when a pane of glass was shattered near the Peterborough bench.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
