Smith solid in net for Brampton Battaltion's 4-1 win over Peterborough Petes

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Jake Smith stopped 33 of the 34 shots he faced to lead the Brampton Battalion to a 4-1 win over the Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League play Thursday.

Jamie Lewis, Mike Amadio, Nicholas Foglia and Zach Bell scored for Brampton (16-13-5).

Greg Betzold scored the only goal for Peterborough (8-21-4).

The Petes opened the scoring 12:49 into the first period. Betzold dumped the puck into the corner from the blue-line then chased it down as it bounced in front of the net and jammed it home.

Lewis picked off a Petes clearing attempt along the boards and scored an unassisted marker three minutes later to send the teams to the locker room tied 1-1.

Brampton controlled play in the second, outshooting the Petes 24-13 and scored the only two goals of the period.

Amadio buried a cross-crease pass during a 5-on-3 power play then Foglia snuck a backhand between Andrew D'Agostini and the post at 3:34. Bell blasted home a point shot in the final minute for the last goal of the game.

Smith was sharp in the Battalion net to prevent the Petes from being able to mount a comeback. Brampton was 2 for 5 on the power play. Peterborough didn't score on its two man advantages.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
