Guelph, Greaves stop Elmira again

His Junior hockey career is just five game, but Guelph Hurricanes goaltender Jet Greaves already has an impressive stat line. Sunday night the 16-year old won his fifth game in as many starts as Guelph Hurricanes (5-1-1-0) downed the defending Sutherland Cup champion Elmira Sugar Kings 3-2.

Elmira came out flying in the opening minutes looking for redemption after losing their home opener a week earlier to the Canes. Greaves earned a shutout that night and has continued his strong play in net.

Ryan Sparkes scored the first of two goals at the midway point of the opening period. Anthony Mota and Braydon Munn assisted on the powerplay goal. Less than three minutes later the Hurricanes led 2-0 as Connor LePage found the back of the net.

Elmira battled back in the second period cutting the lead to 2-1 at 11:22. Momentum would not last long though as Sparkes scored what would be the game winner just :48 later to regain the two-goal advantage.

A last minute Sugar Kings goal just before second intermission made the score 3-2. Neither team mounted much of an attack in the third other than on the powerplay and both goaltenders kept the period scoreless to end in another Guelph road victory.

The Hurricanes return home on Thursday night playing host to the Kitchener Dutchmen (1-3-0-1). Game time at Sleeman Centre is 7:30 PM.
