#2 Barrie Colts 5
#3 North Bay Battalion 2 (Colts lead series 1-0)
The Barrie Colts got off to a great start to their second round series as the controlled the game most of the way through in a convincing five to three win over the Battalion. Sharks prospect Kevin Labanc added 3 assists for the colts including one on each of the first two Colts goals. Dylan Sadowy missed his second game in a row with an injury. Sadowy got hurt blocking an Alex Nylander shot in game two of the series but had been playing through it unfortunately early in game six he blocked another shot that hit him in the same spot and took him out of the lineup. The Colts are calling it an upper-body injury. The prognosis is good though as Sadowy is expected to rejoin the lineup sometime late next week.
s/t to Chris Edwards for the Sadowy update.
