It won’t be easy for the Brockville Braves to make it five wins in a row…. especially tonight.

The Rockland Nationals had been scheduled to take on the Braves at the Memorial Centre on Friday night at 7:30. However, a power outage on Friday forced the game to be postponed. A make-up date has yet to be announced.

Brockville (11-4-3) has won four straight, including last weekend’s games against Cornwall and Smiths Falls. Brockville’s record in October was 7-1-1.

“The boys are playing very consistently now,” head coach Randy Jones said on Thursday. Achieving success after putting in so much time and effort in the first part of the season is encouraging to the players, according to Jones.

“They’re getting rewarded for their hard work… We just want to keep this thing going,” he added.

Brockville is in third place in the CCHL Robinson Division, three points behind Kanata and one point ahead of Pembroke. The Braves have three games in hand on the second-place Lasers and the fourth-place Lumber Kings, who will host Brockville on Sunday night.
