Braves suffer pair of defeats

Share This Article

The Brockville Braves suffered a pair of setbacks this weekend, losing to the visiting Cornwall Colts on Friday and the Nepean Raiders on Sunday, moving down to third place in the Robinson Division standings. 

On Friday, the Braves came out of the gates with a purpose, firing 16 shots to Cornwall’s seven but heading into the first intermission tied 1-1 after a last minute goal from Cornwall cancelled out Mike DeBello’s third of the season.   

The second period saw Cornwall open up a 4-1 lead before Chris Roll and Kevin Kirisits brought the hosts within a goal heading into the final 20 minutes of play. 

Cornwall scored again at the mid-point of the third period and added an empty net marker to make the final 6-3. 

On Sunday, the Braves travelled to Nepean to take on the Yzerman Division leading Raiders. 

The hosts scored the game’s only four goals, handing the Braves their second straight defeat, their worst of the season.  Brockville didn’t manage a goal for the first time this season, despite firing 31 shots at the Raider goal. 

The Braves will be looking to bounce back this week on Friday when they welcome the Gloucester Rangers to the Memorial Centre.  Game time is 7:30 at the Memorial Centre.
