OHL Roundup: Kevin Labanc lifts Barrie Colts to 3-1 win over Owen Sound

OWEN SOUND, Ont. - Kevin Labanc broke a 1-1 tie with his ninth goal of the season in the second period, and the Barrie Colts edged the Owen Sound Attack 3-1 in Ontario Hockey League action on Monday.

Aaron Ekblad scored his 19th of the year for Barrie (26-22-3), and Brendan Lemieux sealed the victory by adding a power-play, empty-net goal with 51 seconds remaining in the game.

Chris Bigras had the lone goal for the Attack (23-22-7).

Colts goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood made 24 saves for the win, while Owen Sound's Brandon Hope turned aside 32 shots in the loss.

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.
