Hamilton Bulldogs 6 Guelph Storm 3

The Hamilton Bulldogs had a solid start in the first period, and hold on with a 6-3 victory. Hamilton improves to 3-1 in the new season.


The Hamilton Bulldogs offense put on the clinic in the opening frame, and never relinquish their early lead. The team dissected the Guelph Storm defense with 21 shots in the first twenty. Forward Michael Crammerosa led the charge with a solid performance in the opening frame by scoring two goals, followed by fellow line mate Marian Studenic contributing to the cause with a goal and two assists, as well as Niki Petti scoring the only power play goal for the Bulldogs. Newcomer Issac Nurse provided the insurance in the third, and Mackenzie Entwistle added more cushion with the empty netter late in the third period. Making his debut for the black and gold was Will Bitten, who looked fine at every shift he was on during the contest. Overall, it was a strong showing, but they cannot afford to be minimized like they did in the second period, as well got to be better in the PP, and on the faceoff circle.



Regarding the defense of the Hamilton Bulldogs,  it was another slow start, but an eventual good performance. Allowed too many shots from second period onward, but goaltender Kaden Fultcher continued to show remarkable poise and confidence thus far in the regular season, with another great performance in between the pipes. Defense tighten up down the stretch after allowing the third goal by the Guelph Storm offense, in which it was the only goal given up since the opening twenty minutes of play.

The Bulldogs close out the week in St. Catharines as they face the reigning OHL Eastern Conference champions, the Niagara Icedogs (formerly Mississauga Icedogs). The Icedogs will celebrate their hockey historic connection this game as they honour the St. Catharines Teepees with a banner raising ceremony.
