The Barrie Colts scored four times in the third period, including three in the opening four minutes of the period to pick up a key Ontario Hockey League win over the Soo Greyhounds.
Having lost three straight heading into action on Saturday night, the Colts picked up a 7-4 win over the Greyhounds at the GFL Memorial Gardens.
For the Greyhounds, there weren’t many positives in the contest.
“Older guys aren’t putting in close to the effort that the first- and second-year guys are putting in,” said Greyhounds coach John Dean.
“The younger guys are working exceptionally hard and a lot of guys that need to take a step forward and lead this team right now aren’t,” Dean also said. “And it’s costing us valuable games early in the season.”
After the Colts scored in the opening period to take a 1-0 lead, the two clubs combined for five in the middle frame and entered the third tied at three.
For the Colts, coach Warren Rychel challenged his team between periods.
“I challenged them to come out after two and win a period,” Rychel said. “The Sault is a desperate team just like we are, and they pushed back.”
