Shalapata-Header(WINDSOR, ON) – Windsor edged the Ice Dogs 2-1 Saturday night with two goals in the 1st period and holding on in the face of the pressure. Niagara managed to get one back in the 2nd, but then Mike DiPietro closed the door for the win.

Sean Day and Logan Brown staked the Spitfires to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes, with helpers going to Jalen Chatfield, Julius Nattinen, Graham Knott, and Jeremy Bracco. Ondrej Machala was credited with the lone marker for Niagara.

It was Windsor’s 3rd win in a row before being doubled 4-2 the next night by Guelph.

They now head out on a 2-game road trip to Sault Ste Marie and Saginaw this weekend. They’ll return home January 29 to face Hamilton with the puck dropping at 7:00pm.
