Windsor was coming off a big win. Kingston was recovering from a loss. However, it was the latter who skated out the victors this afternoon at the WFCU Centre. Billy Jenkins scored twice to lead the Frontenacs to a 4-3 win against the Spitfires.

Kingston was playing their third game in two and a half days this afternoon and Windsor was looking to take advantage of a tired squad. Kerby Rychel fired first for the Spitfires to bring their plan to action. Josh Ho-Sang worked his magic around a couple of players and put the puck on Zack Lorentz’s tape. Lorentz slipped a pass between goalie Mike Morrison and the defender to Rychel. The young Spitfire had plenty of time – and a wide open net – to put Windsor up 1-0. Kingston tied things up a little less than ten minutes later. After a couple Frontenacs circled the Spitfires’ net, a pass was sent through the crease and tipped into the open net, behind Jordan DeKort. Despite the equalizer, the Spitfires had lots of continuous pressure the entire period. The first 20 minutes ended in a 1-1 standstill.

From the drop of the puck of the second period, Kingston began to gain control of the game. It started with the Frontenacs taking the lead. It was a wrist shot from Billy Jenkins that put his team ahead. Later, three players broke out across the red line and into the Spitfires’ zone on a 3-on-1. Darcy Greenaway decided to take the shot himself, and he was able to beat Dekort blocker side. Nearly five minutes later, Kingston increased their lead once more. Patrick Sieloff’s pass ended up behind Nick Ebert. The puck was picked up by the Ryan Kujawinski and sent to Jenkins. His shot easily surpassed DeKort for his second of the game. The period concluded as Kingston kept a commanding 4-1 lead heading to locker room.

After a dominant second period by Kingston, Windsor responded in the third. They kept puck control, had numerous scoring chances and a pair of goals. To get things going, Rychel passed to Murphy, who returned the pass to Rychel. His one-touch pass went to Ebert. The shot was partially stopped – and consequently slowed down – by Michael Moffat. As a result, the play threw off Morrison as Windsor came within two. The comeback was nearly complete, courtesy of Ebert once more. On the power-play, following great puck cycling, Saverio Posa passed to Ebert at the point. The one-timer bullet of a shot was untouched, as the Spitfires were one goal away from tying the game. Their momentum and return was cut short by a penalty (with just over two minutes remaining) as the clock became their enemy. Time ticked down and the Spits were handed a tough 4-3 loss by the Kingston Frontenacs.

Windsor is back on the ice this Thursday, November 29th at 7:05pm against the Barrie Colts. Thursday’s game is also Windsor’s annual Sparky’s Toy Drive. Fans attending the game are encouraged to bring new toys in support of the toy drive. Windsor firefighters will also be passing a boot through the stands to collect funds.
