Saginaw all over Owen Sound, 4-1

Fresh off blowing a 4-1 lead to Sarnia Friday night, the Saginaw Spirit held a 4-1 lead and beat the Owen Sound Attack by that margin Saturday night at home.

Ryan McDonough (left) scored the hat trick and Tom Pyatt also scored for the Spirit. Chris Chappell assisted on McDonough's second goal for his first OHL point.

Goaltender Ryan Daniels turned aside 39 shots in the effort.

“It’s important to remember this was a team victory,” Daniels said. “I gave up some rebounds and the guys cleared the puck for me. It was a good team effort.”

“Our players showed a lot of character,” Saginaw coach-GM Bob Mancini said. “It was a great team effort from the net out.”

Saginaw returns to ice for back-to-back home games Saturday, Oct. 22 and Sunday, Oct. 23. The Spirit face the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and Belleville Bulls.
