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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
