Henri Ikonen and Spencer Watson scored shootout goals, with Watson netting the game-clincher, as the visiting Kingston Frontenacs ended a five-game winless streak at the Scotiabank Place by beating the Ottawa 67's 3-2 in the annual School Day Game.
Ikonen and Roland McKeown scored regulation goals for the Frontenacs while the Taylors, Fielding and Davis, found the net for the 67's.
Frontenacs' netminder Mike Morrison stopped 31 of 33 shots for the win, while at the other end of the ice, Keegan Wilson stopped 34 shots in a losing cause for the host 67's.
Fielding opened the scoring for the 67's at 3:43 of the first period as he beat Morrison with a snapshot. After the 67's got on the board, the Frontenacs tied the game 62 seconds later as Ikonen got a pass from Sam Bennett and scored on a wraparound, making it 1-1 after 20 minutes.
Davis gave the 67's another one-goal lead 22 seconds into the second period, but the Frontenacs tied it up at 7:10 of the middle frame as McKeown blasted a shot past Wilson to make it 2-2. It remained tied after regulation, but nothing was settled in the five-minute overtime session, so it had to decided in a shootout.
