Braves show plenty of fight in Game 3
The Colts had a chance to take a stranglehold on their best-of-seven semi-final series with the Brockville Braves on Sunday night, but they let the opportunity slip through their fingers.

Cornwall - Mar. 27, 2011 - The Colts had a chance to take a stranglehold on their best-of-seven semi-final series with the Brockville Braves on Sunday night, but they let the opportunity slip through their fingers.

The Braves played a solid road game and erupted for four goals in the second period to take Game 3 by a score of 4-2.

Cornwall now leads the series 2-1, with Game 4 going in Brockville on Tuesday night. Game 5 will be back in Cornwall on Thursday night.

Cornwall got on the scoreboard first with a late first period goal from Drew Henry, but the lead didn't last long.

Brockville connected for four straight goals in the middle frame - including three from Mark Belvedere and another from Kenny Matheson - to take control of the game.

Cornwall tried to mount a comeback in the third period and at one point, they did get the puck past Braves netminder William Betts. However, the goal was called back much to the chagrin of the Colts fans in attendance.

A couple of questionable calls by referee Nygel Pelletier on Colts forward Tyson Spink pretty much quashed any momentum the Colts had down the stretch.

Mitch Zion added a late third period goal to cut the Braves' lead to two goals, but it was too little, too late for the Colts.

Pete Karvouniaris was pulled from the Colts net after the second period after allowing four goals on 25 shots.

The announced attendance was 1,459.

In the other Central Hockey League semi-final series, Pembroke beat Gloucester 6-3 on Sunday night to take a 3-0 series lead.
