Ryan O'Connor scores twice as Barrie Colts beat Peterborough Petes 5-3

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Ryan O'Connor scored twice to lead the Barrie Colts to a 5-3 win over the Peterborough Petes in an Ontario Hockey League game that featured two penalty shots Tuesday night.

Erik Bradford, Mark Scheifele and Brendan Bell with an empty-netter also scored for Barrie (13-4-1).

Brett Findlay, Alan Quine and Zach Lorentz replied for Peterborough (4-11-3).

O'Connor tied the game at 3-3 with a short-handed goal 55 seconds into the third period. Then he gave Barrie its first lead of the game with a power-play goal at 10:24 when he ripped a one timer to the short side from the faceoff circle.

Findlay had opened the scoring with a wrist shot to the top shelf but Bradford banged the puck home from a scramble in front to tie it up for the Colts after the first period.

The Petes took a 3-1 lead when Quine connected on the power play before Lorentz found the back of the net. But Scheifele's power-play goal made it 3-2 after the second period.

Petes goaltender Andrew D'Agostini foiled Anthony Camara on a penalty shot in the second after the Colts forward was hooked on a breakaway.

Mathias Niederberger returned the favour on another penalty shot, stoning Gregory Betzold who had been tripped as he broke in on the Colts' goalie.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
