There was no shortage of shots on goal at the Brockville Memorial Centre on Wednesday night.

Brockville and Alexandria racked up a total of 92 shots in their early-season CCHL2 game. Although the Glens had a 52-40 edge on the Tikis, the home team picked up a 7-4 victory.

Alexandria captain Austin Ladouceur opened the scoring with a short-handed goal at 4:12 of the first period. Brockville’s Tyler Toomey evened the score with a power-play goal at 6:26. Tikis captain Ryan Glazer gave Brockville the lead 10 minutes later; it was his second goal of the season. Joseph Marabella’s fourth of the year came about two minutes later, giving the Tikis a 3-1 lead heading into intermission.

Austin Gaspar made it 3-2 about a minute into the second period, but Colin Stacey restored Brockville’s two-goal lead at 4:23 on his third goal of the season. Zachary Bigras made it 4-3 on a power play at 9:20 of the middle frame.

Glazer, Stacey and Toomey scored their second goals of the night within a span of 2:25 to give Brockville a 7-3 lead midway through the third period. The final goal of the game was scored by Alexandria’s Jacob Lefebvre at 12:04.

Stacey, who also picked up an assist, was named first star. Second star went to Brockville’s Zach White, who had three assists. Kolten Oakes-Cook of the Glens was named third star. Nicholas Ciccarelli made 48 saves and picked up the win in net for the Tikis.

With eight points in four games, White entered Thursday with the league lead in points.

Wednesday’s game opened a home-and-home; Brockville (2-2) will travel to Alexandria (0-3) to close the series on Friday night.
