Short Benched Bruins upset 1st Place Chiefs!

Celebration2Bruins pull off a 4-3 win over Lakefield before 275 fans tonight at the Bear Den. First period action ended scoreless but in Captain Matt Allen’s return to the lineup after a 7 game absence he fired a rocket wrist shot to beat the Chiefs Zach Wainman for a 1-0 lead in the second period. Tyson Eastgate’s hustle at his own blue line created a cross ice pass to Allen who was flying down the right side. Conner Miller is showing his experience gained from the Jr A level by setting up Carter Vahey who got a shot on net that was redirected by Tim Bierema(PP). Another power play goal by Korey Brand upped the lead to 3-0 as Bierema slipped the puck to him from behind the net and he one timed the pass for the goal. Lakefield started the third with a flourish scoring at 1:51 however the Bruins went on the attack scoring a very important 4th goal that would eventually be the game winner. Brands second on the power play on a goal mouth pass from Miller again gave Uxbridge the 4-1 lead. Conner Beck also assisted on the play. The Chiefs however kept attacking and got within one goal, losing for only the 4th time this year, two of which were at the hands of the Bruins! Uxbridge Bruins’ goalie Cody Northover made several key saves contributing the victory.
