Saigeon found the back of the net twice more in the third, enough for a hat trick, but not enough to defeat the Colts.
A pair of empty-net goals late in the third from Lucas Chiodo and Matej Pekar solidified the Colts’ victory.
Hamilton’s goalie Zachary Roy made 19 saves during Wednesday morning’s match.
Barrie’s netminder Maksim Zhukov made 33 saves for the win.
The Colts will host the North Bay Battalion next on Thursday at the Barrie Molson Centre.
