BRAMPTON, Ont. - Bobby Sanguinetti scored two goals and added an assist and Matt Duchene potted a pair of his own as the Brampton Battalion cruised to a 6-1 victory over the Ottawa 67's Sunday afternoon.

With the victory the Battalion (36-20-1-3) extended its home winning streak to a franchise best seven games.

Kody Musselman opened the scoring for Brampton 3:06 into the game, fooling goaltender Adam Courchaine on a wrist shot from in close.

Sanguinetti then made it 2-0 on the power play at 11:02 of the opening period, firing a shot that touched the inside the post before crossing the goal line.

Sanguinetti's second of the afternoon, also with the man advantage, gave the Battalion a 3-0 advantage after 20 minutes.

Michael Latta scored for Ottawa (26-28-2-3) early in the second period to cut the lead to two.

But Mike Lomas restored Brampton's three-goal lead midway through the second. Duchene scored his first goal late in the second, with his second coming in the third period.

Bryan Pitton was effective between the pipes for the Battalion, turning aside 30 of 31 shots. Courchaine and Chris Perugini combined to stop 40 shots for Ottawa.
