It was a productive trip up the valley for the Brockville Braves.
The Jr. A team won its fifth consecutive game by defeating the Pembroke Lumber Kings 4-1 on Sunday night. The victory gave the third-place Braves a three-point lead over Pembroke in the CCHL’s Robinson Division standings.
After Cameron Hough gave the home team the lead about two minutes into the second period, Parker Casey’s first goal of the season tied the game at 12:14 of the middle frame. Konnor MacCormick’s power-play goal at 16:29 proved to be the game-winner for Brockville; it was his fouth goal of the year.
The Braves added to their lead in the third period. Clay Korpi scored his first of the season at 11:30, and Will Torriani’s fourth of the year made it 4-1 with about two minutes left in regulation.
MacCormick, Hough and Casey were named first, second and third stars respectively. Brockville outshot Pembroke 33-30; Jake Begley picked up the win in net for the Braves.
Brockville (12-4-3) is two points behind second-place Kanata, and the Braves have three games in hand. Brockville plays in Cornwall on Thursday night and then hosts Kemptville on Friday night.
The Rockland-Brockville game that had been scheduled for this past Friday night but was postponed because of a power outage at the Memorial Centre had yet to be rescheduled as of Monday.
The University of Ottawa men’s hockey team announced on Twitter on Monday that MacCormick has been recruited for 2020-21.
