Following a nail-biting overtime thriller that saw the Sudbury Wolves drop their first game of the weekend on Friday, the Wolves hit the road to face the Owen Sound Attack on Saturday.  

Wolves’ D-man Kyle Rhodes was one of the only up-sides in this tilt, but his three-point performance wasn't enough as the Attack put on a seven-goal performance that sent the Wolves packing. 

Rhodes’ earned three stars for his efforts, but his play was overshadowed by a less than stellar performance from his teammates. The Wolves manage only 21 shots on goal to Owen Sound’s 44. 

The Wolves found themselves in trouble early, trailing 3-1 after the first, and 4-1 at the end of 40 minutes. 

Owen Sound, relentless in their attack (pun intended),:continued the onslaught in the third, sending the fans home happy with a 7-3 victory. 

The key to the win was striking early and fast, as the Attack scored within the first three minutes of each period, and went one for two on the power play to win their 10th game of the regular season. 

While the Attack continues to roll, the Wolves are having a hard time trying to find their feet as the season progresses. 

Newly minted captain Michael Pezzetta and company will look to rebound and take two points from the Guelph Storm as they will visit the Sleeman Centre tonight to cap off a short two-game road trip.
