The frustration was evident early for the Windsor Spitfires and it never seemed to subside.
The Spitfires were whistled for the game’s first three penalties and seemed to be battling on-ice officials as much as the Guelph Storm Thursday.
Eventually, that frustration got the best of the Spitfires in a 5-0 loss to the Storm before 5,565 at the WFCU Centre.
“I think we were fine five-on-five, but you get three penalties (in the first period) and it kind of kills your momentum and we didn’t respond,” Spitfires forward Derek Schoenmakers said.
The Storm and Spitfires are built much in the same mold with young rosters that rely on hard work most nights to find success on the scoreboard.
“The Windsor Spitfires play hard and they’re a tough team to play against,” Storm head coach Scott Walker said. “I think it’s good for our guys to see that, especially the young ones because it’s tough to win in this league.”
But the Spitfires could only find frustration against the Storm and it only continued to boil for while Windsor was killing off Guelph’s fourth power-play of the game. Windsor’s Brady Vail got a step on Guelph defenceman Andrey Pedan, who managed to break up the play from behind.
The Spitfires wanted a call while the Storm turned back up ice with Scott Kosmachuk getting loose in the slot and scoring the opening goal of the game.
“It’s a missed call,” said Boughner, who saw Vail get a 10-minute misconduct for protesting the play.
