Bruins win Game 7 to Advance to the Central Finals!

POGM7HandshakeIt must’ve been a full moon somewhere, how else do you explain the wild finish to this series in Clarington as the Bruins opened up a 5-1 lead and then held on for 6-5 victory in eliminating the Clarington Eagles in game 7 tonight. Marco Mastrangelo got the Bruins on board in the first as he pounced on a goal mouth scramble picking up a rebound from a Tim Bierima shot for the lead. The Eagles tied it at 1-1 after one. The Bruins exploded for 4 goals in a 2:18 span in the second, chasing starter CJ Sharp from the Eagles net. Three of them were on the power play by Matt Allen(2), Conner Beck and Conner Miller and that takes us to the wild finish in the third. Clarington scored 3 goals and trailed 5-4 with 4 mins and 55 seconds left. Captain Matt Allen worked the puck up the boards and as he was tied up by an Eagles player was able to get the puck to team-mate Jarett Smith and his wrist shot eluded Conner Visca high on the glove side. Clarington on a power play with a sixth attacker score to make it 6-5 and despite a wild finish around the Bruins goal, Max Tjin held them off from that tying goal and his jubilant teammates celebrated along with the Uxbridge Fans! This completes the comeback from trailing 3-1 in games to Clarington in this series. ¬†Game one of the Finals is in Lakefield Tues. Mar.4th at 7:30pm and then Game 2 is in Uxbridge Fri.
