It was a little bit of everything for the Brockville Tikis on the road this weekend.
The Jr. B team followed up a 3-2 loss in Perth on Friday night with a 4-3 shootout loss in Renfrew on a snowy Saturday night and then a 6-3 win in Athens on Sunday night. The Tikis are now tied with Renfrew for fifth place in the CCHL2’s Richardson Division, although the Timberwolves have five games in hand on Brockville. Both teams trail fourth-place Arnprior by one point.
Athens scored first at Centre 76 on Sunday night, thanks to Kohle McCulloch’s eighth goal of the season 2:26 into the opening period. Ryan Glazer’s 17th of the year drew Brockville even on a power play at 13:08 of the first.
Zach White gave the Tikis the lead at 5:53 of the second period; it was his 11th goal of the season. Glazer made it 3-1 with his second of the night on a power play at 9:52. Tanner Flood gave the visitors a 4-1 lead with his third goal of the year at 11:13; it was also a power-play marker.
Athens’ Connor Bell got the home team to within two at 2:40 of the third period; it was Bell’s third goal of the year. Brad Arnott restored Brockville’s three-goal lead with his fifth goal of the season 25 seconds later. Nolan Brien’s sixth goal of the season made it 5-3 at 10:29. The Aeros pulled their goalie with just under two minutes left in regulation; White scored into the empty net with 68 seconds on the clock.
