It was a scoreless first period at the Bear Den tonight despite the Bruins out shooting the Knights 12-5, a pace the Bruins kept up in the second but came out of the 2nd tied at 1-1. Simon Feig sent Michael Rennie in on a breakaway and he fired a shot over the glove hand of NK’s goalie for the lead. Just under 3 mins later the Knights would tie it up to set up the third period dramatics.
Captain Aiden Reilly got his teams game winning goal that clinched first place, kept the unbeaten streak alive at 15 and set a franchise record 32nd win of the year. Jackson Savery got a big insurance goal from a difficult angle with Justin Bennett and Stefan Palatsidis assisting. Final shots were 38-15 Uxbridge as they wrap up the season on Sunday in Sutton at 3:30 pm against the Ice, hoping to add to their record setting season.
Congrats to the Players, Coaches Drew, Coxy, Spats, Assistant GM Kevin Vandergeest and General Manager Mark Savery on bringing Uxbridge its first division title in 10 years.
