Ottawa 67’s came on strong in the first half of Sunday’s game against Peterborough’s Petes when Aaron Bradford (#33) took the first goal in the first 4 minutes of the game. Shortly after, the first penalty was called on the 67’s Duchesne (#6) for goalie interference which gave the Pete’s a Power Play and a goal to tie the game.
Later on in the period a misconduct was called upon the Pete’s #18 Taylor Davis which left the Ottawa with an advantage in the last half of the period. However, this advantage was not enough to hold off the Petes strong offense and scored with 1 second left in the period.
The Second half of the game started off with the Pete’s overtaking and Ottawa and scoring in the first minute of the Second period. However, not long after the Ottawa’s Michael Clarke (#25) got the goal back to help the 67’s get back into the game. There were a series of powerplays for the 67’s during the second half of the game but it was not enough to take back the Peterborough’s strong lead.
Ottawa tried to have a comeback in the third period and some great saves were made by the Ottawa’s goalie Hebist (#1). However, it was not enough to redeem their goals and the Peterborough ended up scoring two more goals in the third period winning the game 6-3. This win helps Pete’s still remain ahead of the 67’s in the series.
