BRAMPTON, Ont. - Bolstered by defenceman Bobby Sanguinetti's five-point performance, the Brampton Battalion cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors on Sunday afternoon.
Sanguinetti scored four goals and added an assist, with two of his tallies coming on the power play. Cody Hodgson, John Hughes, and Thomas Stajan rounded out the scoring for Brampton (11-6-1-2) who vaulted into first place in the Eastern Conference's Central Division with the win. Hughes and Hodgson each chipped in with a pair of assists.
The Battalion converted on four of 10 opportunities with the man advantage. Matt Piva scored the lone goal for Mississauga (7-10-1-0).
Sanguinetti, a New York Rangers prospect acquired from the Owen Sound Attack in the off-season, has 15 goals and 19 assists, in 20 games. His five-point performance falls two short of the team record, which was established by Wojtek Wolksi on Jan. 22, 2006.
Bryan Pitton made 24 saves for the Battalion, while Anthony Grieco turned away 24 shots for the Majors.
