Guelph Storm win in return to the ice following COVID postponements

It has been nearly a month since the Guelph Storm played hockey, but the team beat the Kitchener Rangers 7-4 on Sunday at The Aud.

Seven different players scored for Guelph, while Owen Bennett turned away 14 shots in what was technically the Storm’s fourth straight win.

The Storm’s last game was played on Dec. 18 — a 4-1 win over the London Knights — before heading into the winter break. Since then, five games have been postponed due to COVID-19 protocol.
