Allsports here for more Mann Cup sports news and sports on the web. So game 4 went off last night in Langley and the home side was in desperate need of a win to tie the series up. Another loss and Brampton would go up 3-1 in the series and it would likely be to deep a hole for the Thunder to climb out of.

The game was scoreless for 31 minutes and 4 seconds (likely some kind of Mann Cup record for goal drought) with neither team giving an inch on defense. until Athan Iannucci opened the scoring. Mike Grimes made it 2-0 for the home side three minutes later but Dan Dawson got one back for Brampton. Iannucci got his second of the frame and Jarrett Davis answered with an unassisted  tally in the last minute of the second period to bring Brampton within one.

Kyle Belton restored Langley’s two goal lead two minutes into the third period but Brampton would not be denied, scoring the last three goals of the game to take it by a 5-4 score. Brampton out shot Langley 39-34 in the game and now has a strangle hold on the series and can wrap it up with a win tonight.

The Brampton boys will try their best to finish it tonight because they have jobs and families to get back to. The last thing they want to do is hang around for an off day tomorrow before playing again on Wednesday.

No Guts No Glory”
