Clarke sets up three PP goals as the Battalion down the Frontenacs

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Blake Clarke set up three power-play goals on Sunday afternoon as the Brampton Battalion defeated the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 4-1 in Ontario Hockey League play.

Patrik Machac, Brenden Miller and Zach Bell all scored with the man advantage for the Battalion (14-11-5) and Nicholas Foglia scored the other while even strength.

Spencer Watson scored a late goal for the Frontenacs (15-13-0), who trailed 4-0 midway through the second period.

Matej Machovsky stopped 21-of-22 shots for the win as Mike Morrison made 32 saves in a losing cause.

Brampton finished the afternoon 3 for 7 on the power play while Kingston failed to score on its only two chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
