BRANTFORD – It was all Brantford Blast in the first period, all Whitby in the second and a free-for-all in the third period Saturday night in Whitby, Ont.
When the final buzzer rang out, the visiting first place Whitby Dunlops took the marbles with a 7-5 final score. The Brantford loss comes on the heels of Friday night’s 5-2 win at home over the visiting Hamilton Steelhawks.
The Blast will close out the regular season with a home-and-home series against the Hamilton Steelhawks starting Friday night at the Brantford and District Civic Centre before taking the 403 to Hamilton’s Mountain Arena Saturday. Barring any unforeseen bad luck, the Blast will likely finish the regular season in third place, perhaps fourth depending on how the St. Catharines Athletics end their regular season schedule. Thorold is two points behind Brantford heading into this weekend’s games. Stoney Creek will finish in second place.
