THUNDER BAY – SPORTS – After being outshot 18-3 and outscored in the first period on Tisdale’s goals by MacKenzie Carson and Colby Vranai, the Kings showed up to play in the 2nd period, outshooting the Trojans 12-6 and cutting their lead down to 1 on a King’s goal by Peter Hannula, the only goal in the 2nd period, which also brought the crowd back into the game. Tanner Martin was equal to the task on a penalty shot by Nicholas DeGrazia later in the 2nd period, that had the crowd sitting on the edge of their seats.

A terrific start to the 3rd period with a Tisdale penalty resulting in a Kings power play goal by Nicholas DeGrazia, who finally solved Martin 32 seconds into the 3rd, but the jubilation was dashed just over a minute later when Tisdale’s Trenton Curtis put the Trojans ahead for good. Kings outshot the Trojans in the 3rdperiod 11-8 but the game total was 32-26 in Tisdale’s favour. Tillsdale would pocket an empty net goal by Jayden Wiens for a final score or 4-2.

Tillsdale now sits with a 1-1 record, leaving the Kings with a steep hill to climb now with an 0-2 record with 3 games remaining in the preliminary round.
