The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks were defeated by a determined Durham Thundercats team 4-2 on Friday night in Game 3 of their best-of-seven quarter final series.

The Hawks lead the series 2-1. The Thundercats were skating like their playoff lives depended on it and they jumped out to an early lead when Curtis Longland scored on a power play early in the first.

Hawks' defenceman Trevor Smith evened the score with a power play goal of his own assisted by Jeff MacDermid and Brendon Haefling.

The Winterhawks continue to get great production out of all four lines and it was the fourth line that put them out in front midway through the second as Michael Johnstone made a great pass to Chris King who buried it high behind Durham goalie Gatlin Burt.

The Thundercats continued to work hard and it paid off late in the second when Kevin Tremble tied the game.
