Brockville 6, Navan 3
Jonny Hill’s three-point effort (2G/1A) — which included a late-game empty netter — led the way for the Brockville Braves as they doubled up the Navan Grads 6-3 in the showcase finale.
Braves (9-7-0) goaltender Justin Evenson stopped all 26 shots he faced after relieving start Nick Wiencek, who was pulled after allowing three goals on 11 shots in his CCHL debut.
A three-goal first-period burst in the span of 6:18 from the Grads (4-10) gave them a 3-2 first-intermission lead, but Jesse Winchester’s Braves battled back to earn the win.
