Storm blasts out of the gates

Tony Saxon, Guelph Mercury – So much for rookie jitters.

In a battle between two of the youngest teams in the league, the Guelph Storm opened the regular season with a 6-3 win over the Windsor Spitfires Thursday night.

With both teams featuring nine rookies in their lineups, the Storm dominated the early going then held on in the third.

Two empty netters made the score look a little more comfortable than it was, with Windsor making it a 4-3 game with 4:08 left in the third.

“It’s a credit to our bench and it’s a credit to the kids, the way we didn’t cave in when it got tight in the third,” Storm coach Scott Walker said.

“We were patting each other on the back, not kicking each other in the butt. Nobody was going crazy on each other when it got close. These guys want to win for each other.”
