(OSHAWA, ON) – A trip to the GTA over the weekend left the Windsor Spitfires with a split in meetings against Mississauga and Oshawa. As a result, the Spitfires have dropped to 4th in the OHL West, but just 2 points behind 1st place Flint.
A three-goal outburst in the 1st period against the Steelheads set Windsor up to cost to a 4-1 margin of victory. Cole Carter scored twice and added an assist to lead the Spitfires offense. Cole Purboo scored his 4th of the year and Aaron Luchuk netted the insurance marker.
Logan Brown assisted on all four Windsor goals.
On Sunday, the Generals were emotionally invested in the game as they retired Marc Savard’s jersey prior to the puck drop.
Carter opened the scoring at 3:05 of the 1st and Brown scored midway through the 3rd, but the Spitfires couldn’t contain Oshawa’s Anthony Cirelli, who potted three, including 2 in the 3rd period.
Between now and November 18, Windsor will play 11 of their next 15 games at home, beginning with Mississauga this Thursday at 7:05pm. The heavy home schedule is to compensate for playing over a month on the road until their return to Windsor on December 29.
