Jr. Sabres lose in shootout, 2-1

Niagara Gazette — Darren McCormick scored the Buffalo Jr. Sabres' only goal in regulation and scored in the shootout, but the host Georgetown Raiders had the final say in their 2-1 shootout victory over Buffalo in their Ontario Junior Hockey League matchup Saturday night.

Liam Board netted the winner for the Raiders.

McCormick's goal was his 11th of the season, the most among Jr. Sabres players so far this season.
