Attack3-Mar8-featBy Tracey Richardson

A tired Owen Sound Attack team couldn't outrun the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Sunday, losing 1-0 in the last of a trio of tough weekend games.

Attack goalie Jack Flinn was steady in net, stopping 42 shots, but his teammates could only muster 17 shots on Greyhounds goalie Brandon Halverson. The play was overwhelmingly in the Owen Sound end all afternoon, with the Attack fumbling at times to get the puck out and producing turnovers. A third period energy surge by the Attack was cut short by penalty trouble as the game turned chippy.

attack-game5-featThe Owen Sound Attack kick off a three in three weekend with a potential playoff opponent when they head to Guelph to take on the Storm on Friday, Mar. 6.

After a 5-1 victory over the Peterborough Petes on Tuesday night that clinched a playoff berth, the Attack now sit just three points back of Guelph with two games in hand for 4th place in the Western Conference.

Friday night's match up pits the 5th place Attack (30-20-2-7, 69 points) against the Storm (34-23-2-2, 72 points) in what is looking to be a preview of the 1st round of the Western Conference Playoffs. Owen Sound and Guelph will meet once more before the regular season ends, with the Attack's penultimate game coming against their Highway 6 rivals. The Attack enter Friday night's game having won seven of their last 10 games while the Storm have won six of their previous 10 games.

A six-game winning streak, a full house of more than 3,400, and the annual Bears in Blue prostate cancer fundraiser wasn't enough to propel the Owen Sound Attack to victory Saturday night against the powerhouse Erie Otters.

The Otters capitalized on their powerplays, scoring on three of them to beat the Attack 6-1 at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

The game was a feisty affair with a couple of fights, the bad blood having developed from playing against each other Friday night as well in Owen Sound. The Attack won that game 5-4, with goaltender Jack Flinn collecting the win. The Otters and Attack have played each other six times this year, with the Attack winning two of those matches.
