Game Report


After a tremendous road win on Wednesday night to bring the series back to home ice in Brampton, the Beast and Monarchs dropped the puck on Game 6 at the Powerade Center on Friday night with a lot on the line.

David Pacan wasted no time getting the scoring going for Brampton by potting his first goal of the postseason just six minutes into the game.  He was assisted by Brandon Marino and Matt Petgrave.

Manchester’s Ashton Rome answered back with an unassisted tally later in the period, but the Beast weren’t going to sit back in this game.  With just eight seconds remaining in the frame, Reggie Traccitto gave his team a one-goal lead.

The teams traded goals back and forth throughout the second and third periods, with Brampton outshooting their opponents in both periods. Luke Pither got on the score sheet and Pacan notched his second of the night but Manchester kept answering with goals of their own.  The Monarchs went up 5-4 on the Beast late in the third period, and despite their best efforts and a flurry of shots on net, Brampton couldn’t get another puck past Sam Brittain.

A landmark season for the Brampton Beast comes to end, as Manchester wins the series 4-2 and now heads to the Eastern Conference Final to face the South Carolina Stingrays.
