On Canadian Tire night at the Bear Den in front of a larger and boisterous crowd, silver stick Champsthe Uxbridge Bruins defeated the Little Britain Merchants on a shootout goal by Todd Winder 3-2. It had looked like Uxbridge had the winner on Jarret Smiths power play goal from Marco Mastrangelo and Tyson Eastgate but the Merchants tied it up forcing overtime and then the shootout. Smith roofed a shot after some pretty passing by Eastgate and Mastrangelo as he caught the Merchants goalie sliding away giving Smith nothing but net. In the first period Patrick Bolahood took a pass from Dylan Lock and lobbed a shot at the net, which went through a maze of players and the Merchants goalie’s legs for an early 1-0 lead. Little Britain tied it in the second at one a piece. Brandon Francey stopped all three shots in the Shootout for the win. Uxbridge plays the Lakefield Chiefs in the battle for first place in a home and home set on Tuesday Jan.27th at Lakefield and Friday Jan.30th at the Bear Den!

The Uxbridge Bruins honoured the Minor Peewee A and Major Atom A teams during the second intermission for their recent Silver Stick Championships. Congratulations from the Uxbridge Junior C Bruins!
