AttackOct4-fullBy Tracey Richardson

Owen Sound Attack rookies led the charge Sunday in a 7-2 pounding of the Ottawa 67s at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Finnish import Petrus Palmu scored two goals, while Jonah Gadjovich scored his first OHL goal and assist. Keenan Reynolds also notched his first OHL assist.

The veterans contributed their share too, with captain Zach Nastasiuk putting the team's first two goals up on the scoreboard. Kyle Platzer and Jeffrey Gilligan also scored, and goaltender Brandon Hope stopped 32 of 34 shots for the win. Hope also stopped a penalty shot in the second period.

Sunday's action was a different story from Saturday night's game against Guelph, which Owen Sound lost 3-2.

Attack goalie Jack Flinn pulled off some heroics in stopping 37 of 40 shots, and the Attack led the game 2-1 after two periods on goals by Ethan Syzpula and Daniel Milne.

But the Storm stormed back in the third, scoring two power play goals to steal the win.

The Attack are now 2-1-0-2, good for six points in five games. They're tied for second place in the Midwest Division along with Guelph. Erie leads the division with eight points.

The Attack hit the road later this week for games in North Bay, Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie Thursday through Saturday. Their next home game is Oct. 18 against Oshawa.

BETWEEN THE LINES: The Attack are still carrying three goalies: Jack Flinn, Brandon Hope and Michael McNiven. ... Alex Annecchiarico saw his first game action Sunday after serving a four-game suspension. ... Forwards Brett Hargrave and Daniel Pugliese have yet to suit up in a game. ... The Attack's leading point getters after five games are Kyle Platzer, Daniel Milne and Damir Sharipzyanov, all with seven points. It also puts the three of them in fifth place for league scoring.
