In a very close game till late in the third period, the Bruins battled strong preserving a 1-0 lead on Toby Cooper’s goal scored in the second period. Then at the 11:08 mark of the third Captain Aiden Reilley (SH) literally flew from center ice on a breakaway pass from Adam Turner and put the moves on the Pirates goalie for a 2-0 lead.

The Bruins got two goals 13 seconds apart starting at 15:45 to increase the lead to 4-0. Daniel Giorgio on a partial breakaway found the five hole on a blistering wrister and Jackson Savery used his strength to strip the puck away from a Picton D-man and fire the puck high on the stick side while falling to the ice.
Jacob Gordon turned aside every one of the 25 shots he faced for his first shutout in Junior C and as a Bruin making some game stopping saves to keep the game close till the scoring gave the team some breathing space. Congrats Jacob!
Next up the Lakefield Chiefs who are 2 points up in this tight race for 1st place, on Friday Nov.9th at 7:45pm in the Bear Den.
The Uxbridge Bruins erased Clarington’s 3-0 lead in the second period behind four consecutive goals from Justin Bennett to score a 7-3 victory and maintain an 8-game winning streak on home ice to start the PJHL season.
Bennett broke up the Eagles’ shutout bid just past the midpoint of the second period, adding another powerplay goal almost five minutes later to cut the deficit to 1.
With under 2 minutes to play in the second period, Bennett completed the natural hat trick to knot the game 3-3 heading into the final frame.
Another powerplay goal by Bennett less than 3 minutes into the third period gave the Bruins their first lead of the evening, and they would keep rolling as the game drew to a close.
Goals from Jackson Savery, Robert Freckelton and Adam Turner down the stretch put the game away for the home side. Jacob Gordon did an outstanding job of shutting down the Eagles offence in the second and third periods, stopping 18 of 19 shots. Uxbridge would outshoot the Eagles by a final margin of 45-30.
The next game for the Bruins is a road match-up against the Picton Pirates on Sunday evening. The Bruins will be looking to sweep the season series after a 4-3 overtime win over Picton at the Bear Den on Thanksgiving weekend.
