The Menace had 40 shots on the 99ers but could not regain the lead after losing it in the third period. James Jagodic and Aidan Puley picked up their first goals of the season, and Glen Crandall stopped 24 of 27 shots. Crandall spent last season with the Aurora Tigers.

Niagara Falls comes into the game after a 3-0 loss to Georgetown on Friday night in their first OJHL home opener after moving from the GOJHL. The Menace and Canucks met early in the exhibition season, with Milton winning 5-2 in Niagara Falls.
