Attack set for pair of weekend games
The Owen Sound Attack will kick off a two game weekend with the team’s 1st Military Appreciation Night on Saturday, Nov. 11.
Playing host to the Sudbury Wolves on Remembrance Day, the Attack will honour Canada’s veterans and active duty servicemen and women by wearing special camouflage jerseys that will be auctioned off on CHL Auctions following the game.
All proceeds from the jersey auction will be donated to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 6 in Owen Sound who is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.
More information on Military Appreciation Night can be found HERE.
On the ice, the Attack and Wolves will meet for the 1st time in 2017-18, with Owen Sound entering the weekend at 2nd place in the Midwest Division thanks to a 9-5-0-2 record through 16 games.
Sitting at 6-4-0 through the past 10, Owen Sound will be looking to rebound from a disappointing 4-1 loss to the London Knights on Saturday, Nov. 4.
Sudbury, meanwhile will begin their weekend of games with a 6-10-3-0 record that they’ll put to the test on Friday night when the Barrie Colts make the trek up north.
Saturday night’s game between the Attack and Wolves will be a reunion for Zack Bowman, Alan Lyszczarczyk and Sudbury, as the game will mark the 1st matchup for the players against their former team since a pre-season trade that saw Owen Sound acquire the pair from the Wolves.
Fans can purchase tickets to the game, which begins at 7:30pm on Saturday evening, at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office, or by calling 519-371-7452. Availability is low, with just single seats and standing room remaining.
Following the contest, the Attack will make the trip down Highway 21 to take on the Sarnia Sting on Sunday afternoon in a game that begins at 2:05pm.
Sarnia currently sits atop the Ontario Hockey League with a record of 15-3-0-0 and is also ranked 1st in the CHL Top 10 Rankings.
They recently saw a league-best 14 game winning streak snapped by the Kingston Frontenacs, and will go toe-to-toe with their West Division rival Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds on Friday night before laying in wait for the Attack.
Sunday’s game will be available live on Kia of Owen Sound/Terry’s Trailer Service Bear Radio on 560 CFOS, with coverage also going on Rogers Local 53.
