The Sudbury Wolves were chewed up and spit out by the Hamilton Bulldogs in Ontario Hockey League action in the steel city Saturday Night. The Bulldogs downed the Wolves with a 4-1 score in the game held at the First Ontario Centre.
In first period action, the Bulldogs went to work as right-winger Mark Duarte fired in the first goal of the night past Wolves goaltender Mitchell Weeks. It was at 11:05 on the clock. About four minutes later Hamilton left-winger Ryan Humphrey tipped in the second goal of the night. A minute later, Hamilton did it again with a third goal, this time from centerman Jan Mysak. It was 3-0 at the end of the first period for the Bulldogs.
Both teams hit the ice hard in the second period, and the action was fast and furious for more than seven minutes. Then Sudbury's centerman Giordana Biondi scored to put the Wolves on the scoresheet. The score was 3-1 and would stay that way throughout the second period.
In the third period, the action continued strongly with both teams working hard to get an edge on the other. At one point the Bulldogs scored with centreman Logan Morrison but that goal would be taken back due to goaltender interference.
The Bulldogs persisted and soon enough left-winger George Diaco would score the fourth goal with almost six minutes left in the game. Hamilton goalie Marco Costantini took the win for Hamilton.
The Wolves continue their weekend road trip with a game taking place Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre to take on the Mississauga Steelheads.
