Brantford cruises to 5-1 win over Thunder Bay

 

The ALLIANCE Champion Brantford 99ers picked up where they left off, grabbing a 2-0 lead after one period to skate to a 5-1 decision over the well-travelled Thunder Bay Kings to open their OHL Cup schedule.

Maguire Duwyn (1, 2) led the way offensively with a pair of goals as the 99ers won while holding the Kings to an 0-for-6 mark on the power play.

“Yeah we did a lot of good things today,” Duwyn said post-game. “I thought all of our lines were rolling and that’s how we won a championship this year. Everyone has to be involved.”

Theo Hill (1), Andrew Casasanta (1) and Ellis Rickwood (1) also scored for the 99ers while Todd Gratton picked up a pair of assists and Ben Edwards made 24 saves in goal.

“The season has been a lot of fun. Winning is fun,” Duwyn quipped. “I know it’s been awhile since Brantford won a championship and it was a lot of fun to be a part of it this year. We want to keep that going here this week.”

Nikolas Campbell (1) provided the lone Thunder Bay goal while netminder Eric Vanska made 24 saves.

Brantford gets back to work against the Barre Colts at 4:00pm while Thunder Bay returns to the ice against the Toronto Jr. Canadiens at 8:45pm.
