A four goal outburst in the second period was enough to put the Petes comfortably ahead in front of the home fans in Peterborough as they bounced back from a Wednesday night loss in Kingston by defeating the Battalion 8-3.

“As dumb as it sounds, it doesn’t sound like an 8-3 hockey game,” says Battalion Assistant Coach Scott Wray.

“It’s one of those games where you get a block here or there or a save here or there and it’s a much tighter hockey game. I think if we play that same game tomorrow night, we win the game,” he added talking about the Troops Friday night affair with the Frontenacs in Kingston.

North Bay got two goals in the second period from Alex Christopoulos and Paul Christopoulos while Brandon Coe scored in the third to make the score 7-3 at that point.
