Avery Hayes and Logan Morrison also scored for the Bulldogs, who lead the Ontario Hockey League in points and were the first club to clinch a playoff spot.

Nathan Allensen and Declan McDonnell scored the Colts’ two goals on the evening.

Colts captain Brandt Clarke was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for a check to the head in the third period.
