The Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds rallied from a 4-1 deficit to beat the visiting Saginaw Spirit at the Essar Centre. The Greyhounds have won both meetings with the Spirit so far this season, including a 3-2 win in Saginaw last Saturday.
Mark Petaccio led the goal-scoring for the hosts as he found the net twice, while Michael Schumacher, Andrew Fritsch and Nick Cousins each contributed with a goal and an assist with Cousins netting the game winner with 7:24 left in the third period. Jared McCann also chipped in with his second OHL goal.
It was a homecoming for Chris Buonomo, who made his Greyhounds' debut as he registered an assist for his new team. The Sault Ste. Marie-born defenseman was acquired from the Barrie Colts for a fourth round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection. Buonomo will be entering his fifth year in the OHL.
Spirit Captain Vincent Trocheck led his team with two goals and an assist, while Jimmy Lodge, Grant Webermin and Carlos Amestoy found the net for the visitors.
