The team played their second home game of the season last night versus the Brampton Excelsiors. Without a point in their first four games, the Beaches were looking to come away with a win against Brampton. It was a very close game from start to finish as both teams played a good back and forth game with two hot goaltenders killing much of the offense. Gregory Davidson, Jordan Robertson, Ryan Fournier and Jake Cook all scored in the first period. The beaches went into the second period down 5-4. But the boys came on and had a very strong second, controlling the floor and many of the chances. Brampton goalie Nate Barlow was on his game as the Excelsiors were fortunate to end the second tied 7-7. In the dominant second period, Ty Thompson scored his first goal in his Beaches debut. Thompson was draft in the second round of the 2012 dispersal draft  the Akwasasne Indians. Mike Triolo also scored as well as Robertson scoring his second of the night. The third period belonged to the goalies as each team was onyl able to score one goal each. Ty Thompson scored his second goal for the Beaches. Tied at 8 at the end of the third period, the game went into a ten minute overtime period. Brampton struck first as the beaches found themselves down by one as the clock ran down. A last effort by the Beaches offense saw Jordan Robertson score his hat-trick goal and game tying goal with fifty second left in overtime. The game ended at 9-9 and both teams walked away with a deserving 1 point. The Beaches next  home game is tomorrow at 8pm versus the defending champion Whitby Warriors at Ted Reeve Arena.
