Brampton led 5-3 after the first period and used two goals in the final two minutes of the second to head to intermission with an 8-7 lead. There was no scoring for the first half of the third, then Jordan Critch connected to tie things up. Chris Corbeil scored unassisted for what proved to be the winner and Heseltine gave the Excels a bit of insurance with three minutes to play.
Brampton officially moves to 2-4 while the Kodiaks fall to 3-5. KW's next game is Sunday night when they play host to the Oakville Rock at 6 pm. Brampton returns to action next Wednesday in Brooklin at 8 pm.
