Lumber Kings Drop Second Game in a Row in 4-2 Loss to Brockville
The Pembroke Lumber Kings fell behind 2-0 in the first period and never recovered in a 4-2 loss Friday night in Brockville in the first game of a home and home series with the Braves. Carter Vollett and Jack Stockfish scored for the Kings who have cooled off after winning nine of ten games. The loss was the second in a row for Pembroke who dropped a 3-2 overtime decision on home ice last Sunday versus Renfrew.
The Kings are now 16-5-2-1 on the season. Their 35 points puts them at the top of the Robinson division and five points back of the league leading Ottawa Junior Senators.
The Kings and Braves game on Sunday night coincides with Rogers Hometown Hockey being in Pembroke. Fans attending the Sunday, December 5th game versus Brockville are advised that the PMC parking lots will not be available because of the hockey festival.
