Mississauga, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads saw their streak of five games without a regulation loss come to an end Friday night, falling 6-1 to the Saginaw Spirit at the Dow Event Center. Mississauga simply couldn’t put together a winning effort in their third of four road games on the current trip, after impressing against Sarnia and Erie prior to Friday’s contest. Dalton Young led the way for the Spirit with a goal and two assists, while three others notched two points in the victory. Mississauga’s lone goal was scored by Dylan DeMelo on a pass from Kristoff Kontos.
Clint Windsor got the start for the Steelheads, his first game back in Saginaw following a trade that brought him to the Steelheads. It would be David Perklin who opened the scoring at 8:19 of the first from Dalton Young and Nick Moutrey. 5 minutes later, rookie Brandon Prophet would put the Spirit ahead 2-0 with his first OHL goal. The Spirit would take the lead into the break following a chippy first period that saw the teams combine for 30 penalty minutes.
Saginaw Captain Vincent Trocheck would open the second frame with a goal from Young and Grant Webermin, prompting James Boyd to swap goaltenders; Clint Windsor left the game with 10 saves.
Andrey Alexeev would beat Spencer Martin at 4:41 of the period, from Steven Strong and Garret Ross, however Dylan DeMelo would get it right back, scoring from Kristoff Kontos just 13 seconds later to bring the score to 4-1 Saginaw. Brandon Lindberg would score at 10:37, and Dalton Young would close the game out in the third period to seal the victory for Saginaw.
Spencer Martin made 26 saves in relief, however the Spirit would sweep the three stars with Dalton Young, Jake Paterson and Vincent Trocheck earning first, second and third respectively. A special congratulations goes out to Vincent Trocheck, whose assist moved him into second all-time in Spirit history.
The Steelheads will visit the Belleville Bulls next Wednesday, before returning home Friday to host the Brampton Battalion. The puck drops at 7:30 PM, and great seats are still available at the box office and online at Ticketmaster!
