A five- game  winning streak to begin the season came to an end Friday night in Walkerton.

 

The Kincardine Bulldogs were edged out 2-1 in overtime by the Walkerton Hawks in what was the first meeting of the teams this season.

 

The teams traded second period powerplay goals to make it 1-1.

 

Blake Underwood scored first to give Kincardine a 1--0 lead. With Trevor Harper in the penalty box, Tim Dwinnell set up the Underwood tally.

 

Then, with Kincardine's Taylor Lukasik serving a minor hooking penalty, Greg Wardell scored from Trevor Smith and Kevin Quincey to tie the game.

 

Drew Davidson scored the overtime winner.

 

It was also the first loss of the season for Bulldogs goaltender Drew Pegrum. Pegrum stopped a lot of rubber, turning away 41 shots from the Hawks.

 

At the other end, Brock Hansell stopped 35 shots from Kincardine, including 16 in the second period.

In Saturday night's game at the Davidson Centre, Kincardine debuted new goaltender George Grammanopoulos against the visiting Wingham Ironmen.

 

Grammanopolous made 22 saves as he  earned his first win 7-1.

 

The lone Wingham goal came early, just two minutes into the game. Josh Higginson beat Grammanopolous to give the Ironmen a 1-0 lead.

 

Just seconds later, however, Mike Rutherford evened the game from Lukasik. Rutherford then scored the game winner later in the period from Derek Regier and Joel Alton.

 

Dwinnell also had two goals in the win. Adding single markers were Josh Catto, Alton and Nathan Barfoot.

Assists went to Dave Chessell (3), Bill Ceasar (2), Mike Bujold, Lukasik, Catto (2), Underwood and Regier.

 

Next up for Kincardine is a Friday night game in Mount Forest against the hapless Patriots. It is the lone game of the weekend for Kincardine.

The Bulldogs don't play at home again until Oct. 26, when they will host the Ironmen for a Sunday afternoon game.
