Braves look to even semi-final series – R&T

Recorder & Times Staff

They’re hoping it’s not their final home game of the season.

The Brockville Braves will host game four of their CCHL semi-final series with Hawkesbury on Friday night. The Braves edged the Hawks 1-0 in Hawkesbury on Wednesday night; the Hawks lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.

Brockville’s Ryan Bonfield broke the scoreless tie in the third period of game three Wednesday. “Just an absolute bomb by Bonfield,” remarked Braves captain Thomas Haynes in an interview Thursday. “Great job by him with that shot.”

It was Bonfield’s fourth goal of the post-season.

Sami Molu stopped all 39 shots he faced to earn the shutout for Brockville Wednesday. Molu has started all 10 of the Braves’ games in the playoffs.

“He just gives us that confidence,” Haynes said. “He’s been so great behind us,” the captain added.

Hawkesbury will host game five Saturday night. The Braves would host game six Monday at 7 p.m. A seventh and deciding game would be played in Hawkesbury on Tuesday night.

Game four of the other CCHL semi-final series is set for Renfrew on Friday night. The Wolves trail Ottawa 2-1; the Jr. Senators won the league’s regular season title.
