BRICK 4, SOUTHERN 1: Brick continued its stretch without the injured Andrew Reiss, as the Dragons (4-2-0) skated past the Class A South rival Rams (2-1-1) on a two-goal performance by David Kearns.

Brick’s James Wiater assisted on the first of Kearns’ goals, as well as another by Justin Stritch, and scored a power play goal of his own in the third period.
