After a 6-3 win Friday at the Bear Den, it was off to Apsley where the Bruins came out flat in this one falling behind 2-0 on goals by the Knights Matt Carroll and Clay Coles, however Toby Cooper (PP) got the Bruins rolling when he banged home a rebound from Mathew Hunter’s point shot. Adam Turner (PP) with one of his patented blasts from the point, tied things at 2-2 and Jackson Savery (PP) with a wicked wrist shot beat the Knights Noah Miller for a 3-2 lead.
There was no scoring in the second period as both the Bruins Ryan McConkey and the Knights Miller closed the door in goal.
A Joshua Cammalleri shot rebounded to Savery (PP) and he made no mistake giving the Bruins a 2 goal cushion. Carroll (PP) got that back for the Knights setting up a wild finish but Savery got the puck up ice and passed off the boards to Justin Bennett who fired into the empty net for a 5-3 final. Bennett suffered and injury on the play as he was given a two handed slash as he scored taking a few moments to recover.
Robert Freckelton was named the workhorse of the game, Congrats Robert.
As the Bruins left the ice North Kawartha fans douced the Bruins in pop and threw popcorn on them as well as the coaching staff.
Game 5 is Monday Mar.11th at 8:45 pm at the Bear Den as the Bruins will attempt to win the series and the Cougar Cup for the first time since 2009. Pack the den and hear the roar!
