A late third period goal pushed the Bulldogs to a 4-3 victory over Niagara at the Meridian Centre.
Hamilton came out strong, with Ben Gleason and Michael Cramarossa scoring a goal a piece.
The Ice dogs wouldn’t answer in the first, but some penalty trouble for the Bulldogs in the second helped Niagara score on the power-play to tie the game.
MacKenzie Entwistle scored his fifth of the season to give Hamilton a 3-2 lead, but the Ice Dogs fought back to tie it up once again, late in the second.
It looked like the game was headed to overtime until Matt Luff, with his fifth of the season, scored a wraparound with 15 seconds left to grab the win for Hamilton.
Hamilton is back in action Saturday October 8th as they host the Guelph Storm at FirstOntario Centre at 7PM.
