Spitfires end streak, beat Kingston 5-2

The Windsor Spitfires stopped a three-game losing streak by beating Kingston by three goals Sunday.

The Spits scored three goals in the first period, giving them plenty of distance to beat the Frontenacs 5-2 at the Leon’s Centre.

Windsor now has eight points in the OHL West Division, but they remain in fourth place.

Connor Corcoran got things started for the Spitfires with a goal at 6:02 in the opening period. Just less than two minutes later, though, the Frontenacs evened things up with Jason Robertson’s 13th goal of the year. Tyler Angle and Curtis Douglas then scored for Windsor back-to-back, for a 3-1 lead after one period of play.

Thomas Stevenson added some insurance for the Spits in the second period with his first goal of the season. Frontenacs goalie Brendan Bonello was pulled and replaced with Ryan Dugas. Kingston got that goal back when Brett Neumann scored on the power play later in the frame, but Luke Kutkevicius scored short-handed for a 5-2 Windsor lead after 40 minutes.

There was no scoring in the third period. Kingston outshot Windsor 11-9, and the Spitfires had two power play chances to the Frontenacs’ one.

Michael DiPietro stopped 38 out of 40 shots in net for the Spitfires. Bonello and Dugas combined for 28 saves in 33 attempts in goal for Kingston.

The Spitfires return home from their eastern Ontario jaunt Thursday night and host the Barrie Colts.
