KITCHENER – A pair of shorthanded goals in the final minute of play made things interesting, but it wasn't enough as the Guelph Storm fell 4-3 to the Kitchener Rangers at The Aud Friday night.
KItchener controlled the play most of the first two periods and it was only the outstanding play of Storm goaltender Patrick Leaver that kept things close.
They led 2-0 after the first period and 3-1 after two.
But a pair of shorthanded goals in the final 48 seconds of the game by Cooper Walker and Ben McFarlane made it a one goal game with 35 seconds on the clock. The Storm never came close after that.
Finished with three points for Guelph.
Braeden Bowman had Guelph's other goal. Leaver made 33 saves. Kitchener went scoreless on seven power play chances.
The same two teams play in Guelph Sunday afternoon.
