Brampton Bombers rally to edge Ancaster Avalanche 3-2 in Golden Horseshoe Conference

Ancaster News

By Larry Robertson, Special to the News

Two answered goals late in the third period carried the Brampton Bombers to a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Ancaster Avalanche in Golden Horseshoe Conference pre-season play last night at Morgan Firestone Arena.

Ancaster now has a record of one win and two losses in exhibition play.  The next action for the Avalanche is in Guelph on Friday, Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Brampton jumped out to an early lead when Nick Petropoulos scored from Kevin Boyd at 9:38 of the opening period.  The Avs came back a goal of their own from Alex Takacs with Will Kelly and Spencer Leenders assisting with less than a minute to go in the middle period.

An unassisted goal by Cole Nagy two minutes into the third put Ancaster in front 2-1, but the lead was short-lived as Brampton’s Kevin Boyd scored on a power-play at the 11-minute mark to tie the score.  Shawn Madden gave the Bombers the win with a goal at 14:59 as Brampton outshot Ancaster 39-18.
