Battalion ends Pack's winning streak with Thanksgiving Day victory

North Bay battle back from an early deficit to stop the Wolves 3-2

The Sudbury Wolves early-season unbeaten streak of two games was halted Monday by the North Bay Battalion.

The Pack travelled to the Gateway City for the Thanksgiving Monday tilt. The game started off well for the Wolves. The Battalion found themselves down 1-0 midway through the first period thanks to a short-handed goal by Wolves captain Jack Thompson.

The second period saw North Bay's Josh Currie tie up the game with his second goal of the season, but before the end of the period, Sudbury bounced back to to retake the lead 2-1, thanks to Alex Assadourian’s first OHL goal.

In the third, the Battalion found the back of the net twice, once on the powerplay on a tap-in goal by Simon Rose after a nice pass from Dalyn Wakely. Later, Brandon Coe netted the game-winner after he had many chances in the game.

Despite the loss, Wolves netminder Mitchell Weeks "put forth another stellar effort," the Pack said in a news release, stopping 30 of North Bay’s 33 attempts on goal to continue his strong start to the season.

The Wolves look to get a win back on Oct. 14 in Peterborough for a rematch of the season opener against the Petes.
