The Little Britain Merchants opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period and that is the way it stayed until the third period. When on a play where Jake Joosten came up with a big save as a Merchants player tried a wraparound shot, the Bruins Thomas Sheedy got the rebound and flipped the puck high over everyone into center ice. Skating at full speed was Alex Siblock and as he went in on a breakaway he was hooked resulting in a penalty shot being called against Little Britain. Faking the wrist shot Siblock pulled it to his backhand and roofed it over the glove hand of the Merchants goalie Adam Harris. The Bruins had several scoring chances with the extra attacker but could not get the equalizer falling 2-1 to Little Britain. Uxbridge plays in Port Perry on Sunday Nov. 1st at 2:25 pm against the Mojacks.

Thomas Swift got the Bruins on the board first with a point shot that deflected off of a Georgina player in front of the net but Branden Francey and Adam Bartholomew had to come up big first with a stick save each as the puck was headed towards the open net. The Ice would tie it up to end the first period at 1-1. In the second Jordan Nesbitt’s point blast gave Uxbridge a 2-1 lead and then it was a deflection by Ryan Miehm for the two goal cushion. Third period goals by Thomas Sheedy (short handed) as he banged in a rebound from Aiden Reilly and Marco Mastrangelo on a breakaway rounded out the scoring in the 5-1 win.

The Uxbridge Bruins played catch-up all night long until the third period when they laid on the mustard coming back to take the lead for a 7-5 win. Scoring for Uxbridge in the first was Wes Cowie for a 1-1 tie and then in the second after the Merchants took a 3-1 lead it was Marco Mastrangelo getting his team within one goal. Jordan Nesbitt’s hustle from the blue line to bang at a loose puck tied the game with just .01 of a second left on the clock. The two teams traded goals through till the 12:00 min mark in the third, scoring for Uxbridge was Alex Siblock and a rocket slapshot from Daryl Thomson. Then it was Shane Smith’s turn to play hero as he redirected Captain Mastrangelo’s pass in the slot giving his team-mates the lead for the first time in the game. He would add another with an empty net goal as the Bruins left the “Bear Den” with a 7-5 win and second place in the standings. The Bruins Branden Francey and Garrett Haden of the Merchants made some quality saves for their respective teams.
