Sparks holds the fort as Guelph rallies for win over Generals

By Tony Saxon, Guelph Mercury

With the Guelph Storm on centre stage, Garret Sparks stole the show Friday night at the Sleeman Centre.

The Guelph Storm netminder turned in a brilliant 44-save performance as the Storm rallied to down the Oshawa Generals 4-1 in a game broadcast across Canada on Sportsnet.

“It was a big game and I like to think I’m a big game goaltender,” Sparks said of his performance.

“I’ve had a couple of tough starts at home and it was in the back of my mind. I don’t like being this hot and this cold, but if this is the start of something good, I’ll take it.”

Sparks held the OHL’s second-highest scoring team (behind Guelph) to just one goal – a Boone Jenner screen shot on the power play in the second period – and kept his team in the game until they got their own offence going in the third.
