Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
The Owen Sound Attack will look for their first win of the season tonight when they play their first road game of the year, travelling to Kitchener to meet the Rangers.
There are great expectations in Owen Sound for the Ontario Hockey League club this season, expectations that were never close to being met in the home & season opener last Saturday, a 4-3 shootout loss to Flint.
It's one game and there's a lot of hockey to be played. I get that....but have you looked at the Attack road schedule to start the season ?
Tonight at Kitchener.
Thanksgiving Monday again at Kitchener
October 15th at London
The weekend of October 21st, the annual doubleheader at Erie
& then October 27th, one more trip to Kitchener.
Six road games......all of them against Midwest Divisional foes. Expectations will meet a reality check as far as I can see for the Attack over the next month of road games.
On another note, after tonight's game, I'll see everybody tomorrow morning in Meaford for the 7th annual Coyote Run.
The event goes at the Georgian Bay Community School Athletic Field with the Walk-Thru at 9 am and the first race set for 10 am.
Have a great weekend.
I'm Fred Wallace
