Lepkowski chips in

In Monday preseason action, Alex Lepkowski notched an assist as Barrie edged Owen Sound 4-3 in a shootout. The 6'4 defender made a nice board pass in the first period to send Brendan Bell in for the game's first goal.

Lepkowski is hoping to be more comfortable starting the transition game in what should be his final year of junior. After just three assists in all of 2011-12 and a total of 10 in his three-year OHL career, the simple play is a good start.

Dan Catenacci did not score for Owen Sound, who falls to 0-2 in the exhibition season after back-to-back losses to the Colts.

Next up for Barrie is a game with Guelph on Friday. The Attack are off until Saturday when they battle the newly minted Mississauga Steelheads.
