Kemptville 73’s motored down County Road 43 Friday night to meet the Smiths Falls Bears and managed a tough 1 to zip win.
First frame closed out scoreless, with Bears out shooting 73’s by 13 to 9 and recorded 2 PIM in sin-bin, with Nick Bond standing tall for Kemptville.
Smiths Falls Bears’ Bradley Dobson was replaced with Kyle Renaud for the second go-around. Kemptville put the first marker on the board with man advantage as Frazee combined with Thousand across the line back to Jared Patterson on point for PPG at 4:26. Kemptville turned SOG around by 11 to 7 and put their special teams to work.
Last twenty miles was tough sledding for both squads and it became a netminder’s clinic, as 73’s Bond faced 27 SOG and Renaud 37 SOG for Bears.
Next home game is Wednesday, January, 10 when we battle the Pembroke Lumber Kings ….Hockey with EDGE.
