DUNDAS – Cam Sault had a big game against the Dundas Real McCoys in Dundas this past Saturday night, scoring a goal and assisting on two more in the Brantford Blast’s 8-4 doubling up of the McCoys.
For a time it appeared the Blast were stronger on the powerplay than at even strength as the unit accounted for four goals on nine chances.
There were a number of nasty penalties making the game a tense one. McCoys Dan Lapointe was the first player to be sent to the showers early after taking a spearing penalty and a match penalty. Jordan Foreman took a head-contact misconduct
All that in the first period when Brantford took a 2-1 lead on goals scored by Andrew Marcoux and Kevin Christmas, both powerplay goals, and for Dundas it was Cam Watson scoring short handed.
In the second Brantford’s Jacob Ledyard took a checking from behind major and misconduct, but there was much more attention being given to the game of hockey, at least from a Blast perspective.
Derek Medeiros, Chris Rebernik and Dustin Alcock put the Blast up 5-1 by the four-minute mark but Cam Weston and Jake Goldberg got two of them back for Dundas. Charlie Stephens closed the period for Brantford with the Blast leading 6-3 by the end of the period.
Meanwhile, Cam Sault and Chris Crumback were adding to the Blast lead. Dundas recorded the last goal of the game in the 8-4 Blast win. Brett Leggat earned the win in the Brantford net.
Heading into this week’s ACH Sr. A action, the Blast are in third place with a 5-3-1 record and a four points behind second place Stoney Creek. In the top spot are the Whitby Dunlops with 23 points on 11 games played. Brantford and Stoney Creek have played nine games.
