Owen Sound Attack 5 Barrie Colts 1
Attack 5 Colts 1
Cade Robinson had a 2 goal game for the Attack who clinched 6th place in the OHL's Western Conference with the victory.
Robinson & Kaleb Pearson had power play goals for Owen Sound while Adam McMaster scored shorthanded.
Manuel Alberg had the other marker in the victory as the Attack moved to 66 points on the season, which means Sarnia cannot catch the Attack for 6th.
Owen Sound is 4 points back of the Kitchener Rangers for the 5th in the Conference with 2 head-to-head games remaining in the regular season.
However, even if Owen Sound swept Kitchener on the final weekend to equal the Rangers at 70 points, Kitchener has the tiebreaker advantages and would get 5th in the event of the two teams both completing the regular season at 70 points
Mack Guzda stopped 17 shots to post the victory for Owen Sound.
Friday the Attack are at Kitchener ( 7 pm for Kia of Owen Sound-Terry's Trailer Service Bearadio on 560 CFOS )
Saturday, the Rangers are in Owen Sound for a 7:30 pm start.
Ben Hawerchuk with his 27th goal of the season had the lone goal for the Colts who were officially eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.
