The Cumberland Grads extended their current winning streak to four games on Sunday with a 4-2 win over the Kanata Stallions.

The Grads opened the scoring on a 2-on-1 break at the 13:33 mark of the first period. Mitch Gallant used Kyle Wild as a decoy on the play before firing a shot into the top corner of the net.

The Stallions eventually tied the game at the 14:08 mark of the second on a play the Grads would have loved to have back.

The scoring play was sparked by a turnover just outside the Grads' blueline. After stick checking the puck away from the Grads' defenceman on the play, Dylan Gareau broke across the blueline and skated in on Adam Laderoute who slid out to try an poke check him, but missed, leaving the Kanata forward with a wide open net.

The Stallions took the lead two minutes later on another flukey goal that snuck through Laderoute's legs just 16 seconds after the Grads had already done an excellent job killing off a penalty.

Trailing 2-1 in the third, the Grads tied the game on a goal be Mark Borkowski midway through the period and then took the lead for good less than two minutes later on Gallant's second of the game.

The big right-winger completed the hat trick with an empty net goal with 29 seconds left in the game.

With the win, the Grads have moved into a first place tie in the Yzerman Division with the Gloucester Rangers. Both teams have 10 points, but the Grads have the all important game in hand. They also have the Pembroke Lumber Kings breathing down their necks.

The Lumber Kings are a point back of the Grads with a game in hand as well. Cumberland can take over sole possession of first place when they host the Brockville Braves on Tuesday night. Game time is 7 p.m.
