Colts Maul Wolves

Barrie | by Ken Hashizume  
Peca with 5 points, Sokolov scores in Colts debut.

An impressive debut for a Colts forward, another had a big night on the scoresheet.
Not since opening night of the 2017-2018 OHL season had the Barrie Colts score at least 10 goals in a game.
They hit double-digits on Thursday night in a 10-1 victory over the Sudbury Wolves to snap a 3-game losing streak.
The opening goal came off the stick of Nathan Allensen who took a pass from Jaden Peca (2 goals, 3 assists) as he was coming out of the penalty box, had a breakaway and snapped it past Wolves goaltender Jake McGrath (24 saves) for a 1-0 Colts lead.
It was 3-0 for Barrie in the second period when Zach Magwood was awarded a penalty shot after he was hooked to the ice on a breakaway.
Magwood scored but was ruled that he pushed the goaltender into the net with the puck.
Later in the period, Magwood (2 goals, 2 assists) would get the first of two on the night for a 4-0 lead.
Dmitry Sokolov got a goal and an assist in his first game as a Colt since being acquired from Sudbury for forward Alexey Lipanov at Wednesday's trade deadline.
Aaron Luchuk (1 goal, 1 assist), Andrei Svechnikov (1 goal, 1 assist), Lucas Chiodo (2 assists), and Jason Willms (2 assists) also had multi-point games.
Sudbury's Darian Pilon broke Leo Lazarev's shutout bid (23 saves) at the 1:00 mark of the third period.
Marshall Frappier (5 saves) came in relief of McGrath after Barrie's 8th goal of the game (from Ryan Suzuki).
Power plays saw Barrie go 2-for-4, Sudbury were 0-for-5.
The win keeps the Colts 2 points up on the Niagara Ice Dogs (who beat Erie 5-4 in a shootout) for first place in the Central division.
The two teams will face off against each other on Friday night in St. Catharine's.
