The Brantford 99ers weren’t about to stop the high-flying machine that is the Wellington Dukes on Sunday.
The Dukes piled the shots and the goals in another ‘W’, 7-2 over the host 99ers to extend their point streak to 15.
Wellington cashed in two goals in the second period courtesy of a pair of veterans.
David Campbell cleaned up the rebound off an Ethan Sullivan shot for his eighth of the year, and Julien Jacob followed that with a bullet slapshot from the left point to record his eighth goal of the season as well.
Calum Haslam cut into the Dukes’ lead at the 9:38 mark of the second period, but Campbell’s second of the game on a powerplay with seven minutes left sent the Dukes on another run that has become a trademark of their point streak.
Jacob Dietz, Jared Langdon, Barret Joynt and Connor Hunt all added consecutive goals to put the game out of reach for Brantford.
Jackson Drysdale got one back late for the 99ers, but that was it for the home side.
Dietz and Edward Moskowitz led the Dukes with three points each, and other multi-point games went to Jacob, Campbell, Hunt, and Ethan Sullivan
Ethan Morrow made 19 saves in his last start before going to Cornwall for Team Canada East evaluation camp ahead of the World Junior A Challenge.
Wellington set a season-high in shots with 65 in the victory.
The Dukes are back in action Monday on the road, but they have a much shorter trip to Cobourg to face the division rival Cougars at 7 p.m.
