Hay­ton scores as Team OHL beats Rus­sia

The Peterborough Examiner - - Sports -

Peter­bor­ough na­tive Bar­rett Hay­ton had a high­light reel goal and added an as­sist as Team OHL beat Rus­sia 3-1 in Game 3 of the CIBC Canada-Rus­sia Se­ries Thurs­day night in Sar­nia. Hay­ton, cap­tain of the Sault Ste. Marie Grey­hounds, set up Isaac Rat­cliffe’s open­ing goal and Macken­zie En­twistle scored on a penalty shot to give the OHL a 2-0 lead. With the score 2-1, Hay­ton scored an in­sur­ance marker in the third pe­riod that was played on high­light reels. He turned a Rus­sian de­fender in­side out be­fore tuck­ing a back­hand deke past the goalie.

“The big thing was our dis­ci­pline,” said Hay­ton of Team OHL’s penalty-free per­for­mance. “We didn’t go shorthanded in the whole game and that was kind of our fo­cus com­ing in. From start to fin­ish we per­formed well and I think it was a great game.”

When asked about his goal, Hay­ton said, “I got for­tu­nate with a lucky bounce in the neu­tral zone and I was com­ing through the mid­dle with some speed. I saw a hole and I was able to freeze the de­fender and make a lit­tle move on the goalie.”

Game 4 in the se­ries is Mon­day night in Oshawa and will again fea­ture Hay­ton and Peter­bor­ough na­tive Owen Tip­pett of the Mis­sis­sauga Steel­heads. Petes’ goalie Hunter Jones and de­fence­man De­clan Chisholm will also play for Team OHL.

Mean­while, the Petes will take on the Hamil­ton Bull­dogs on home ice start­ing at 7:05 p.m. at the Peter­bor­ough Memo­rial cen­tre Satur­day.
