Another Solid Effort by the Redmen Outcome Not as Positive

July 14, 2010
Whitby, ON

The Brooklin Redmen treated their fans to another good outing tonight at IPSC. The team was looking to capitalize on their big win in Six Nations this past weekend and start a winning streak with the playoffs looming. Even with a solid effort tonight it would not be enough against an experienced Brampton Excelsiors team as the Redmen came out of the game on the short end of an 11-8 loss.

The visitors jumped out to a 2-0 lead with less than three minutes off the clock, with Josh Sanderson getting a hattrick in that opening frame. Score after the first was 4-3 for the Excelsiors and it was reversed in the middle frame with the Redmen outscoring their guests 4-3 which made it 7-7 after two periods. The Excelsiors found themselves in some penalty trouble and the Redmen scored three power play goals in that middle frame.

The Redmen gave up the first two goals of the final period and with the Excelsiors up 9-7 Wayne Colley sent Kurtis Wagar in to relieve starter John Cheeseborough. The move had a minimal impact as the Redmen did notch the next goal but that would be all that the Redmen would get in the third. Anthony Cosmo and the defense in front of him shut down any offensive threat that the Redmen could muster.

Ex-Redmen goalie Rob Blasdell (member of the 2000 Mann Cup team) was the back-up on the Excelsiors bench and Mike McLellan appeared against his ex-mates and scored three goals while perched in his familiar spot to the side of the crease.

Steve Line and Brent McCauley called the game and assessed 10 minors to Brampton and six to Brooklin. The Redmen scored three times on the extra man while the Excelsiors countered with two.

“Starr Burger Player of the Game” Kyle O’Brien with three goals and three helpers had his best outing of the season.

The Redmen have one regular season game remaining as Brampton pays a return visit a week tonight July 21 at 8:00 p.m.
