Colts pull away in second period to beat the Petes

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Andreas Athanasiou, Zach Hall and Erik Bradford each had a goal and an assist to lead the Barrie Colts to a 4-1 win over the host Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League action on Sunday afternoon.

Dylan Corson added a single goal for the Colts (23-9-1), who have won back-to-back contests.

Slater Koekkoek scored the only goal for the Petes (8-23-4), who are winless in three games.

Corson scored the first goal of the game, redirecting a cross-ice pass at 6:37 of the first period.

The Petes tied it up on the power play when Koekkoek's slap shot redirected off the inside of a defender's skate and found the back of the net just before the half-way point of the period.

Athanasiou and Bradford scored the only goals of the second period as Barrie took control of the game and entered the third with a 3-1 lead.

Peterborough's goaltender Michael Giugovaz turned away two penalty shots and a breakaway in the third to keep his club close, but Hall scored an empty-net goal at 18:21 to secure the victory for the Colts.

Alex Fotinos made 36 saves for the win as Giugovaz stopped 28 shots in a losing cause.

Barrie went 1 for 2 on the power play while Peterborough went 1 for 4.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
