Colts to face Brockville in second round
The Cornwall Colts will do battle against the Brockville Braves in round two of the Central Hockey League playoffs. Up for grabs is a ticket to the league finals.

Cornwall - Mar. 19, 2011 - The Highway 401 rivalry between the Cornwall Colts and Brockville Braves is about to be renewed in a high-stakes semi-final playoff series.

The Braves knocked off the Nepean Raiders 5-2 in a do-or-die Game 7 on Friday night, setting up a Cornwall-Brockville semi-final matchup in the Central Hockey League playoffs. Cornwall defeated Kanata earlier in the week to advance to the second round.

The series between the second-place Colts and third-place Braves promises to be a good one as both teams match up well on paper.

The Colts had the upper hand in the regular season encounters between the two clubs, winning four of five games. However, every game was close between the two teams with the exception of Brockville's sole win, a 6-2 home victory on Feb. 18.

The series will kick off on Thursday night in Cornwall (7:30 p.m.), and they'll be right back at it on Friday night in Brockville. Game 3 will go Sunday night in Cornwall (7 p.m.) and the series will continue on March 29 in Brockville. Games 5, 6 and 7, if necessary, will be played on March 31, April 1 and April 3.

In the other semi-final series, Pembroke will face the fourth-seed Gloucester Rangers, who defeated Carleton Place 6-2 on Friday night to win their first-round series 4-2.
