Cornwall - Mar. 26, 2011 - Michael Borkowski is proving that good things do come in bunches.

The Colts forward scored the game-winning goal on Friday night - his second in as many nights - as Cornwall skated to a 5-2 win over the Brockville Braves in Game 2 of their Central Hockey League best-of-seven semi-final series.

With the road win on Friday night, the Colts have now jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the series, and Game 3 will be held on Sunday in Cornwall (7 p.m. at the Cornwall Civic Complex).

The Braves and Colts traded goals in the first and second periods before Borkowski connected on the power play early in the third period to give the Colts a 3-2 lead. Connor Primeau and Jacob Laliberte added two more insurance markers after that to seal the deal.

Laliberte actually had a pair of goals on the night, while Drew Henry opened the scoring for Cornwall in the first period.

Mike Skakum and Maxime Dumond scored for the Braves.

Justin Gilbert suffered his second loss in nets for the Braves, while Pete Karvouniaris picked up his second win of the series in the Colts' net, stopping 27 shots.

Laliberte, Borkowski and Skakum were named the game's three stars. Laliberte currently leads the league in playoff scoring with seven goals and nine assists in seven games.
