The Bengals left Thorold with a 10-5 win under their belt.
The Spartans got four of their five goals in the second period with scoring from Sam LeClair, Blair Pachereva, MacGregor Allen, and James Ross. Connor Aquanno managed their final goal in the third period.
But the Bengals spread their scoring over all three periods to dominate the game, outshooting the Spartans 46-34 and doubling their offensive output. Bengals got a natural hat trick from Tanner Brenneke in the first period who added another in the second frame.
Keegan Kahn and Luke Robinson also tallied in the second. Robinson, Coltrane Tyson, Tye Argent and Jack Travossos added to their total in the third period.
