Belleville Sens drop first half of long weekend double header with Crunch

February 21, 2022

The Belleville Senators were unable to overcome a difficult second period on Family Day, falling 6-2 to the Syracuse Crunch at CAA Arena.

Syracuse opened the scoring, 9:51 into the game, when Darren Raddysh beat Mads Sogaard with a slapshot from the blue line. The Senators responded to close out the period as Andrew Agozzino deposited a rebound off the end boards to beat the buzzer at the 19:59 mark of the frame.

The Crunch continued to extend their lead throughout the second through Cole Kopeke and Gabriel Dumont, who both tally twice in the stanza. Belleville added their lone marker of the period after defenceman Zac Leslie finished a creative passing from Andrew Agozzino and Egor Sokolov at 17:35.

Gabriel Dumont continued his strong offensive output in the third period, completing a hat-trick to secure the Syracuse win. The two teams will meet again tomorrow evening at CAA Arena in the second half of their two-game set.
