Family Day Match-up vs Knights

The Bruins will be making a special Family Day trip to Apsley on Monday, Feb. 21 for a 1 p.m. matinee match-up.

This game has been rescheduled from this past Saturday due to unfavourable road conditions throughout Central Ontario.

This match-up carries huge implications in the Orr Division playoff race, with the Knights sitting just two points ahead of the Bruins for third place in the standings and a likely first-round playoff match-up against Port Perry rather than fifth-place Lakefield.

The Bruins will continue their push for the Schmalz Cup playoffs at the Bear Den this coming Friday evening, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. with the Clarington visiting Uxbridge.

Bruins Lose a Heart Breaker in Game 6 to Clarington!


Photo: Bruins Thank their fans!

It was not meant to be as a hard working Bruins Team just came up short losing 3-2 in overtime to the Clarington Eagles. Brandan Reid got the home team off to a 1-0 lead 4 mins into the game but the Eagles tied it up for a 1-1 tie heading into intermission. 

Daniel Giorgio with a goal made it 2-1 in the third but again the Eagles would tie it sending this exciting game into overtime.

The Eagles ended the Bruins season at 4:18 into overtime much to the disappointment of the local fans. Thx to our Fans for your support and good luck to Clarington and North Kawartha in the Orr division finals.

C Ya Next Season!
