Whalers downed in Barrie Thursday night

The Barrie Colts led from start to finish in a 5-1 victory over the Plymouth Whalers before 3,597 last night at the Molson Centre.

Ryan Hamilton led the Barrie attack with a pair of goals, while Andrew Marshall, Vladimir Nikiforov and Travis Fuller scored one each.

Captain John Vigilante (left) scored the lone Plymouth goal at 1:48 of the third period.

The Colts outshot the Whalers, 44-21. Justin Peters stopped 39 for the Whalers.

The game was a penalty-filled and fight-filled affair (21 fighting majors) which will lead to suspensions to players (second and third fights in the same sequence) on both sides.

The Whalers (19-14-1-3) continue on the road tonight at Sudbury and Saturday at Sault Ste. Marie.
