Facing one of the top teams in the Canadian Hockey League, there was a lot to like for the Soo Greyhounds on Sunday afternoon.

The Greyhounds fell 5-2 to the Ottawa 67’s on Sunday at TD Place in Ottawa in a game that the Greyhounds felt good about despite the result.

Greyhounds coach John Dean placed heavy blame on himself following the game.

With the 67’s leading 2-1 midway through the third period, rookie defenceman Jacob Holmes was nabbed for a tripping minor in the defensive zone by the neutral zone referee. Dean argued the call and ultimately received a bench minor on the play as well, putting the Greyhounds down two men for the second time in the contest.

Overage defenceman Noel Hoefenmayer scored on the 5-on-3 to put Ottawa ahead 3-1 with 8:42 to go in the game.

“As far as I’m concerned, I cost our team the game,” Dean said. “I don’t think I deserved the minor but, I should know better than to say a word to (the referees).”
