Seven players score for Kingston Frontenacs in 7-4 victory over Ottawa 67's

OTTAWA - Seven different players scored for the Kingston Frontenacs in a 7-4 win over the Ottawa 67's in Ontario Hockey League play Tuesday.

Cody Alcock, Trevor Morbeck, Marc Beckstead and Ryan Kujawinski each had a goal and an assist in the win.

Mitchell Fitzmorris, Warren Steele and Spencer Watson added a goal each for the Frontenacs (8-9-0), who won for the second time in eight days in Ottawa.

The 67's (6-9-2) got two goals from Tyler Graovac, who leads the OHL with 18. They also got singles from Andrew Abou-Assaly and Michael Cajkovsky.

Ottawa had won two straight games for the first time this season heading into Tuesday, and had collected points in five straight games. The Frontenacs have won four of their past five games.

The teams were tied 2-2 after the first but the Frontenacs scored three times in the second and took a 5-3 lead into the third period.

"In the third period we just wanted to cycle the puck. I said we have enough goals to win, let's just keep the puck away from them and don't give them opportunities to have chances against," Frontenacs coach Todd Gill said.

"For the most part we did that."

The 67's scored early in the third but two late goals, including one into an empty net, allowed the Frontenacs to hang on for the win.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
