Whalers beat Sarnia, lose at Mississauga

The Plymouth Whalers maintained their hold on first place in the West Division with a 5-3 win over the Sarnia Sting on Saturday night, but fell at Mississauga to the IceDogs, 5-2 on Sunday afternoon.

Saturday, Dan Collins paced the attack with a hat trick while John Vigilante (empty net) and John Mitchell (power play) added singles. Ryan Nie started in goal, but was pulled for Justin Garay after a soft goal by Trevor Solomon. Garay stopped all ten shots he faced to earn his first home win of the season.

The next afternoon, Mitchell and Jonas Fiedler were the only goal scorers for Plymouth. Nie and Garay combined to stop 28 Mississauga shots.

Plymouth hosts the Saginaw Spirit on Friday night and the Windsor Spitfires on Saturday night before a 2:00 p.m. matinee in Saginaw on Sunday. Game time Friday and Saturday is 7:30 p.m.
