FRANKFORD, ON – After their 7-2 victory on Saturday night vs. Amherstview, roles were reversed on Monday night as Panthers fell to the Huskies 7-2 on the road.
Despite opening the scoring at 4:05 of the first off a rush from Tyler McGarvey, the Panthers found themselves heading into intermission down 2-1 thanks to goals from Blake Ellis and Keenan Wiles.
Huskies extended their lead 3-1 just 48 seconds into the period when Liam Storms found the back of the net. Panthers came back to cut the lead in half thanks to a powerplay goal from Josh Sainthill but within the next three minutes, Frankford found themselves with a 5-2 lead when Matt Musclow and Dylan Foster each had a goal just 36 second apart. Port Hope elected for a goaltender change at the 6:25 mark as Ethan Reynaud skated in to replace Dominic Marquis. Frankford added another goal before the period was over sending Port Hope into the dressing room trialing 6-2.
There wasn’t much action around either goalie in the third period with shot totals of only 6 for Port Hope and 8 for Frankford. Huskies did add one more as their penalty expired and went on to beat the Panthers 7-2.
Not dressing for the Port Hope was Connor MacGregor, Ben Hansen and Spencer Eriksson.
