OHL Roundup: A look at Friday's games

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.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Brampton 4, Sault Ste. Marie 3; Guelph 7, Mississauga 2; Kitchener 3, Erie 1; London 5, Owen Sound 2; Oshawa 5, Belleville 1 and Sudbury 3, Sarnia 2 (SO).

At Kingston, Ont., Kujawinski opened the scoring for the Frontenacs 7:18 into the first period.

Ritchie responded for Peterborough with a power-play goal at 12:51, however Bennett scored in the final minute of the period to give Kingston a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Beckstead made it 3-1 with a goal on the man advantage at 6:58 of the second period.

Nosad scored three minutes later for the Petes, but Jenkins, Ikonen and Schutt all scored within a six-minute span to open the game up 6-2.

Lorentz made it 6-3 with a late second-period goal, however Beckstead added one more for the Frontenacs in the third period.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
