The Rayside-Balfour Canadians dropped the 6th and final game of their first regular season series in Timmins Saturday night by a score of 4-1.

Penalties proved costly as the Rock scored 3 of their 4 goals on the powerplay to put the game out of reach for the visiting Canadians.

Timmins struck first with two goals in the first 10 minutes of the game, the second of those coming on the powerplay.

They would add another man advantage marker 3 minutes into the second and their 4th goal with just under 4 minutes left in the frame.

Joel Mongeon has the lone goal for Rayside, also on the powerplay, midway through the third. Nick DeGrazia and Brady Maltais drew assists on the play.

The Canadians did themselves no favours tonight, taking 9 minor penalties with five of those coming in the second period alone.

David Bowen made 25 saves on 29 shots in goal for Rayside. The Canadians now have a couple weeks off before returning to action against their next matchup, which has yet to be determined.
