Hornets sting Raptors, 6-3.

Three goals in the third period was the difference for the Hornets.

It was 2-2 after one and then 3-3 after two, as the top two teams went toe to toe early in the season.

In that final period Rollie settled down, and did not allow another goal. Meanwhile, Vieira did not get any support, as Leslie, Iannetti, and Leslie again turned a 3-3 tie into a 6-3 win.

"I was hoping they would score one more so I would get the game winner," said Iannetti, always the team player.

After scoring one of the first period goals for the red Raptors, it was reported that Richard Breed had "retired" at half time.

"That is untrue, I left because I was hungry," said the younger and less experienced Breed.

The gold Hornets are now 1-0-1 good for 3 points and first place.

"I hope we can make a trade for a good defenseman," said Don Fortini. "I don't think we're gonna go very far with me being our top guy on the blue line."
