Gryphon hockey men suffer another loss to Windsor

WINDSOR – A pair of third-period goals just over six minutes apart lifted the Windsor Lancers to their second victory over the Guelph Gryphons in as many days Saturday at the Captri Pizzeria Recreation Centre.

Those goals helped the hosts defeat the Gryphs 4-3 less than 24 hours after scoring a 5-2 win.

Saturday, the teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the first period and 2-2 after the second before Windsor scored the go-ahead pair.

Matt Timms cut the gap to a single goal with an unassisted marker for the Gryphs with 46 seconds to go.

The goal was the second of the game for Timms while Cole Cameron scored the other one. Connor Bramwell assisted on two of the goals and Jaxon Camp also had an assist.

John Wesley had a hat trick for Windsor while Ryan Barbosa scored the other goal. Holden Wale assisted on two of the goals while Mason Kohn, Barbosa, Will Ennis, Barrett Dachyshyn, Brady Pataki and Connor Matton each had one assist.

The Gryphs outshot their hosts 38-28 and were scoreless on three power plays while the Lancers went 1-for-7 on their power play.

Colton Incze had 24 saves in the Guelph net while Nathan Torchia had 35 saves for Windsor.

The Gryphs have six games left on their regular-season schedule and are fifth in the five-team Far West Division. They trail the deadlocked duo of the Waterloo Warriors and Laurier Golden Hawks by five points. Top four in the division advance to the playoffs.

The Gryphs are to host Laurier Thursday in the return of the Frosty Mug Game at the Sleeman Centre. It wasn’t held last year as all sports in the OUA were cancelled by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Game time Thursday is 7 p.m.
