Dundas Real McCoys used the visitors ice advantage to even their best of seven Allan Cup Hockey championship series with a 5-1 win over the host Brantford Blast on Sunday afternoon. With the series tied at two games apiece, the affair resume in Dundas on Friday (April 4) for game No. 5.

In this year’s playoff for the John Ross Robertson Cup, each team has won in the opponents arena. So much for home ice advantage.

On Sunday Greg Stewart and Darryl Smith paced the Real McCoys with a pair of goals each. Jeff White added the other marker.

Brantford got its goal from Chris Rebernik in the second period while the Blast was on a powerplay. Smith’s second goal for Dundas also a powerplay effort.

Dundas led 2-0 after one period of play and 4-1 after two sessions. Goalie Mike Mole stopped 27 of 28 Brantford shots while Brett Leggat turned aside 24 of 29 shots he faced from Dundas snipers.

Twenty-seven penalties in total were called, the most serious was a spearing match penalty assessed to the Blasts’ Ryan Tocher in the third period.
