The Trenton Golden Hawks and Cobourg Cougars renewed rivalries on Monday night and each inch of ice was a fight.
The two teams were missing 16 regular skaters, which made call ups necessary.
Both teams looked to a nearby club for a hand, that being the Port Hope Panthers.
In total, 6 Panthers were called to one lineup or another, along with players from other junior sources and the Quinte Red Devils.
The GHawks jumped out to a 3-0 lead and were able to hold on for a 3-2 win, thanks to a strong performance by Joseph Murdaca in goal.
Jeremy Pullara also added two points in the win.
It was a rough and tumble affair as more than 80 minutes in penalties and game misconducts were handed out.
Trenton Coach Jerome Dupont says it was a chippy affair.
Dupont says despite the fact they have 9 players away, they player an effective game.
Trenton now holds top spot in the Northeast Conference and are second in the OJHL.
They are next in action Friday night, when they host Aurora.
