20-0 Corvairs still fine-tuning

CALEDONIA – A perfect 20-0 record as the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League approaches the halfway point of the 2013-2014 regular season has become a magnet for the cream of the Jr. B crop and an already powerful roster seems to get even stronger with every new acquisition. Even so, players are still being looked at by general manager Brian Rizzetto and probably will be until trade deadline as he fine-tunes the club for another serious run at the Sutherland Cup.

CALEDONIA – A perfect 20-0 record as the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League approaches the halfway point of the 2013-2014 regular season has become a magnet for the cream of the Jr. B crop and an already powerful roster seems to get even stronger with every new acquisition. Even so, players are still being looked at by general manager Brian Rizzetto and probably will be until trade deadline as he fine-tunes the club for another serious run at the Sutherland Cup.

The first place Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs won 4-1 against the fourth place Ancaster Avalanche Saturday night to keep their hope for a perfect season alive against a team that is much better than its 8-8 record might suggest. The Avalanche have lost five overtime games, the most of any team in the league, which means they are a force to be reckoned with in regulation time but just can’t seem to perform well in OT.

Extra time was not needed Saturday as the Corvairs methodically frustrated Ancaster with even pressure and a 2-7 powerplay. Meanwhile, the Caledonia penalty killers were a perfect 0-8.

Connor Murphy set the tone 20 seconds after the opening faceoff on a play set up by Kyler Nixon and Cody Brown.

Matt Quilty added another 38 seconds into the second period on a powerplay assisted by Cosimo Fontana and Cody Brown.

Cole Nagy put the only blemish on the score sheet for the Av’s at 5:55 from Ryan Lewis and Luke Zupan to end the second period with Caledonia leading by a slim 2-1 margin.

Fontana added a the 3-1 goal at 2:05 of the third from Ryan Moran and Murphy before Brooker Muir cashed in on a powerplay, assisted Ryan Blunt and Spencer Gourlay.

The Corvairs outshot the Av’s 54-23 with Colin Furlong recording his 19th win in the Caledonia net.

The Corvairs are off until Saturday, when they host the Niagara Falls Canucks at 7:30.
