BRANTFORD – It’s still hard going in this early season for the Brantford Blast as they lost their fourth game in five starts in the ACH Sr. League. The second place Stoney Creek Generals didn’t have as easy of a game as they anticipated against the last place Blast.
Brett Leggat faced 42 shots in the Brantford goal and held the line for as long as he could. Deron Cousens took 10-seconds to capitalize on Jacob Ledyard’s tripping penalty for the only goal of the first period.
Justin Donati and Martin Lee made it 3-0 by the halfway point of the second period before Derek Medeiros got Brantford on the score sheet from Paul McIlveen and Spencer Herbst at 17:54.
The Generals put another notch in the stick at 2:50 of the third before the one bright spot in the game came when Cameron Sault kept his pace alive and tallied from Dave Russell and Dustin Alcock.
Sault still rides the Blast scoring leaders list with four goals and five assists for nine points after four starts.
The Blast will be on the road this week with games Friday night in Dundas to face the McCoys and Saturday for a rematch with the Generals in Stoney Creek.
