Four-goal third period by Attack sinks Rangers

The Rangers have now lost four straight, and play in Flint and Saginaw Saturday and Sunday

The Kitchener Rangers looked great through two periods of play.

Up two goals, out shooting the Owen Sound Attack in a physical match up and poised to erase a three-game losing skid.

They were also getting the majority of the power plays, but only went one-for-six on the man advantage.

Six minutes into the third, the Attack had three on the board and held on to hand Kitchener a fourth straight defeat, a 4-2 final at the Aud Friday night.

To add salt to the would, the fourth goal by Deni Goure was a pretty one, a backhander that barely crossed the line with 4:10 left, one that resulted in one of a few dust ups between the two teams in the late stages of the game.

The Rangers-Attack rivalry is very much alive.

It made for quite the interesting game for the officials, including Kirsten Welsh, who became the first female lines person to work an OHL regular season game.

Declan McDonnell and Mike Petizian had the Rangers goals.

Gavin Bryant and Nolan Seed scored a minute and nine seconds apart to tie the game early in the third, before Ethan Burroughs provided the eventual winner about four minutes later.

Now, the Rangers make the long bus trip across the border to wrap up a three-in-three weekend with two games in the United States.

They'll begin in Flint against the Firebirds Saturday night.

Pregame on CityNews 570 starts at 6:30 p.m. with Mike Farwell and Chris Pope
