Brampton’s David Vallorani scored with just 1:45 to play in the first when he was sprung on a short-handed breakaway, knotting the game a 2-2 after the first period.

The second period saw much of the same back and forth action. Growlers took a 3-2 lead when Riley Woods put one past the blocker of Brampton’s goaltender Dubeau. Brampton replied when Chris Martenet’s point shot trickled behind the Growlers goalie, knotting the score at 3-3.

At the midway of the second period, the Brampton Beast took the lead, scoring on a shorthanded breakaway. Andrew Sturtz scored to make it 4-3. Georgio Estephan of the Growlers evened the scoring again, extending his point streak to 4-games as he tucked one behind the Beast goalie, making it 4-4 after two periods.

The Growlers took the lead at 2:20 into the third period when Giorgio Estephan scored on the powerplay, making it 5-4 St. John’s. Just a minute later, Francois Beauchemin scored for the Beast to make it 5-5. Teammate Nathan Todd gave the Brampton squad their second lead making it 6-5 heading late into the third period.

With just 2:15 remaining, the Growlers pulled their goalie but the gamble didn’t pay off as Matt Petgrave of the Beast scored to make it 7-5.
