BRANTFORD — After a positively brutal 9–39 inaugural season last year, the Brantford 99’ers have turned the ship in the right direction for 2015–16 and are 4–2–1 in the early going.
It was a goalkeeper’s duel Sunday at the Dan Snyder Memorial Arena in Elmira as Brantford’s Will Rawski and Elmira’s Liam Conway put on a clinic, between them turning away a total of 71 shots over three regulation time periods and two OT periods.
The final was a 1-1 tie game with both goals in the third period. The 99’ers only goal came from Christian Polillo while Elmira’s Zac Coulter countered.
But that was all either goalie was going to give up and after two extra periods with no scoring, the game went down as a 1-1 tie.
The 99’ers play in the Jr. B Golden Horseshoe Conference, and play out of the Wayne Gretzky Arena in Brantford’s north end.
The 99’ers next game is Thursday, Oct. 1st, against the Stratford Collations.
