The Petrolia Squires ended up on the wrong end of a 5-1 score during the second game of the series with the Clinton Radars.
It tied up the series 1-1. Petrolia beat Clinton 6-5 Friay in Clinton after being down 4-1.
It was a penalty filled game Saturday – not surprising since there were scuffles even before the puck was dropped. Dan Veenema 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.”
The Squires and Radars play again Friday in Clinton at 8:30 pm and in Petrolia at 7:30pm
