Whalers oust Windsor; Guelph next

Plymouth captain John Vigilante scored two goals and an assist and rookie Chris Terry scored twice to lead the Whalers to a 6-2 victory over the Windsor Spitfires in the seventh and deciding game in their best-of-seven OHL Western Conference quarterfinal series last night.

Plymouth led 3-0 after one period and 5-1 after forty minutes.

James Neal and John Armstrong scored the other Plymouth goals, while Peter Aston and captain Paul McFarland scored for Windsor.

Plymouth outshot Windsor, 43-24, and if not for the work of goaltender Anthony Guadagnolo would have scored more than six goals. Guadagnolo stopped six breakaways.

Justin Peters stopped 22 shots for the Whalers, who move on to play the Guelph Storm in a Western Conference semifinal series.
