BRANTFORD – The Brantford Blast never do anything small, even when they lose. Friday night, they were creamed by the visiting Dundas Real McCoys, 10-2 at the Brantford and District Civic Centre.
The McCoys chased the Blast all over the ice all night forcing numerous turn overs, some of which Brantford paid a heavy price for.
The McCoys came at the Blast right from the opening face-off and didn’t let up. TJ Sakaluk opened the scoring at 1:39 of the first period and Cam Watson added another for the McCoys at 3:39.
Jerry Galway, Nick Smith and Scott Mifsud each added a goal for Dundas before the 5-0 first period ended.
It went from bad to worse in the second period, as the Blast seemed demoralized and defeated long before the game was over. Ryan Christie made it 6-0, before Brantford broke the zero with Joel Prpic scoring at 10:56 from Jeff Caister and Mark Taylor.
Dundas poured in two more goals to end the second period 8-1 in favour of the McCoys.
With all the momentum going in Dundas’ favour, Scott Mifsud scored early in the third period to make it a 9-1 game, from Darryl Smith and Ryan Crane. Smith then turned it into double digits from Cam Wilson at 14:32.
Brantford’s Jamie Williams put in the Blast’s second goal of a very long night at 15:42, from Joe Iannino and Mike Burgoyne, which is where the game would end, at 10-2.
Iannino saw his first action as a Blaster and picked up his first goal in the loss.
