Jenkins with three points as the Frontenacs beat the Petes 7-3

KINGSTON, Ont. - Billy Jenkins scored once and set up two more as the Kingston Frontenacs downed the visiting Peterborough Petes 7-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

The 18-year-old winger was named the game's first star for his three-point outing, however it was a full-team effort that earned his club its fourth straight victory.

"Coach (Todd) Gill said before the game we had to focus on having four lines going tonight," said Jenkins. "All lines chipped in tonight, whether it was a goal or some good cycling down low, and I think that won us the game."

Marc Beckstead scored twice for the Frontenacs (11-9-0) while Ryan Kujawinksi, Samuel Schutt, Henri Ikonen and Sam Bennett each had a goal and an assist.

Zach Lorentz, Nick Ritchie and Stephen Nosad scored for the Petes (5-15-3), who now sit in last place in the East Division.

"It was a tough game for us," said Ritchie. "I thought we started out pretty good and then we kind of fell apart and took some bad penalties. And then ended up losing the game."

Mike Morrison made 31 saves for the win as Andrew D'Agostini turned away 38-of-45 shots in a losing cause.

Kingston went 1-for-7 on the power play while Peterborough scored once on two chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
