A single goal in the final few minutes of both the second and third periods propelled the Trenton Golden Hawks to a 5-4 win over the Kingston Voyageurs in a tight Ontario Junior Hockey League game at the Invista Centre on Thursday night.

The Voyageurs had grabbed a 4-3 lead with 2:18 left in the second period on a goal from Brendan D’Agostino, but the Golden Hawks’ Paul O’Doherty scored on a power play just 40 seconds later to tie the game.

Then with 2:32 remaining in the third period, Griffen Fox broke the deadlock and gave Trenton a win that improved its record to 8-3-2-0 for 18 points. The East Division’s third-place Golden Hawks lead the Wellington Dukes by a point with three games in hand, and the Vees sit another four points back with a 5-4-2-1 mark.

Trenton stormed out to a 2-0 lead in the game’s opening five minutes, with Mason Hardy, on a power play, and Kingston native Tyler Ignazzitto tallying at 3:08 and 4:53, respectively.

The Vees roared back with a pair of goals in the final five-plus minutes of the opening period to tie the game. Andrew Suriyuth, on a power play at 14:40, and Troy Bowditch, 1:12 later, did the damage.

Sean Robertson, at 10:18 of the second, lifted the Vees into a 3-2 lead, but Cameron Gaylor knotted the score 30 seconds later.

The teams each recorded 35 shots on goal in the game.

Kingston returns to action Friday night at 7 p.m. against the Dukes in Wellington.
