The results were disappointing, regardless of the scores.
That was the feeling around the Soo Greyhounds dressing room on Sunday evening after a 6-1 Ontario Hockey League loss at the hands of the Owen Sound Attack at the Essar Centre.
The loss came less than 24 hours after the Greyhounds dropped a 4-2 decision to the North Bay Battalion on Saturday night in the homestand opener.
Greyhounds Coach Drew Bannister felt that Saturday’s loss to North Bay was worse than Sunday’s setback to the Attack.
“I thought (Saturday’s) performance was a lot worse than today’s,” Bannister said. “(Sunday) we pushed hard in the second period and had a lot of opportunities. Every mistake we made ended up in the back of our net.”
“I had no issue with the way we worked, especially in the second period,” Bannister also said. “It’s not like we spent a lot of time in our defensive zone. There wasn’t a lot off defensive zone play, it was all off the rush.”
David Miller had the lone goal for the Greyhounds, scoring on the power play in the final period. Goaltender Joseph Raaymakers stopped 21 shots in two periods of work before being pulled after 40 minutes. Matthew Villalta came in and stopped 10 shots in the final period.
