Bulldogs put the bite on Thunder

The Thunder Bay KC Bulldogs ended two Borderland Thunder streaks with a pair of weekend wins there.
Jamie Silverson’s goal with 3:42 to play gave the Bulldogs a 3-2 victory Friday before they came back from a two-goal deficit in a 6-3 win Saturday.
Not only was the Thunder’s seven-game winning streak snapped, a 10-game unbeaten streak to start the season also fell by the wayside.
Despite the losses, the Thunder (8-2-2) remain in first place atop the SIJHL standings.
“It’s always disappointing to lose,” said Thunder head coach Dave Allison. “But it can turn into a positive. We hadn’t lost in 15 games, including the pre-season. That’s a pretty good run.”
The Thunder carried a 2-1 lead into the third period of Friday’s game thanks to goals by A.J. Tucker (power play) and Josh McAndrew.
Brian Dzijak evened the score for the Bulldogs at 9:16 of the final frame before Silverson finished off a three-way passing involving Ryden Echum and Jeff Moggy.
Lloyd Stansell added the other goal for the Bulldogs.
The goal scorers for Saturday’s game were unavailable at press time.
The Thunder next march into action Wednesday night in Dryden before returning home to take on the Nipigon Feathermen Hawks at the Ice for Kids Arena on Friday and Saturday.
Game time both nights is at 7:30 p.m.
