Well, hockey fans, finally you can embed your Kemptville 73’s into your event calendar, as “Hockey with EDGE” has resumed its schedule with their first contest on Friday night to face the Braves in Brockville for a 4-2 victory.
The first period was a see-saw battle, with Brockville beating Tyler Laureault at 7:49, when Trent Ledrew, with helpers from Dauphinais and Thor, to strike first. Kemptville responded with Savignac combining with Lammi to find Patrick Larkin in the slot to snipe it over Brandon Abbott at 8:06 to even the odds.
In the second stanza, the Braves tie breaker came at 7:04, with Ryan Bonfield PPG, assisted from Kean and Haynes. 73’s, with man advantage, tied it up when Larkin penetrated the line over to York, across to Johnny Howie PPG,who launched a rocket from the point at 14:49.
Final twenty belonged to Kemptville, as Logue reversed to Caulfield who pulled the trigger on the line, and Brock Krulicki hammered in the rebound at 7:05 to make it a 3-2 affair. With another PP, and the Braves pulling their stopper, the 73’s Devon Savignac PPG buried an EN from a stretch pass from Larkin at 19.40, to give our Boys of Winter the win.
Kemptville outshot Brockville by 25 to 21, with 7 PP’s, only capitalizing on 2.
Next challenge will be in Navan to meet the Grads for matinee excursion.
See you around the boards for next home game, Friday, February 11, at 7:30, when the Smiths Falls Bears roar into the Municipality.
