It was a penalty filled game Saturday – not surprising since there were scuffles even before the puck was dropped. Dan┬áVeenema took offence when Ryan Watterworth started shooting pucks at the Squires during the pre-game warm up. Veenema headed to Clinton’s bench to make a point.

Nathan Ansell had Petrolia’s only goal on a power play during the second period. And there were a lot of power play opportunities with four goals during penalties.

After the game, Squires President Dave Connors called the officiating “disgusting.”

Dan Veenema argues with the referee who was trying to get him to serve a penalty in the third. Veenema was tossed from the game.
