Brockville had a 35-34 edge in shots. Sami Molu picked up another win in net for the Braves; Sebastian Resar was tagged with the overtime loss.

Culhane, who now has five game-winning goals this season, was named first star. Second star went to teammate Colin Elliott, who assisted on both of the captain’s goals. Vom Scheidt was the third star.

A crowd of 287 was on hand at the Memorial Centre.
