Patriots hang on to keep Goderich winless

MOUNT FOREST – The Mount Forest Patriots scored four times in the second period and then held on for a 7-5 victory to prevent themselves from being the first team in the Provincial Junior Hockey League’s Pollock Division from dropping a point to the Goderich Flyers this season.

A hot Tomas Brintell in the Goderich net prevented the margin between the teams from being larger. He had 64 saves in the game.
