CALEDONIA – The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs put two more points between themselves and the second place Ancaster Avalanche with a 5–1 win Saturday night in Ancaster.

As of press time, Caledonia is first in the Golden Horseshoe Conference with 31 wins, one loss, one tie, and two overtime losses for 65 points.

Ancaster now has 46 points and have played two more games than the Corvairs.

Caledonia came out strong Saturday night and carried a 3–0 lead into the first intermission with Austin Brown, Blake Luscombe and Mitchell Fitzmorris doing the honours for the Corvairs.

Dan Volpe made it 4–0 on a power play early in the second period, but Sinclair’s shut-out was spoiled with 11 seconds remaining in the second period when Jesse Hilton found room in the Caledonia net.

Tyler Hill put the last ink on the score sheet at 11:10 of the third period for the 5–1 win.

The Corvairs could easily have blown out the Fort Erie Meteors Friday night in Caledonia after more than doubling the shots on goal on their opponents, but the final score was a “respectable” 5–1 Corvairs win.

Tyler Hill and Daniel Volpe scored power play goals in the first period while Tait Seguin made it 3–0, only 13 seconds after Volpe’s marker.

It was 4–0 after 40 minutes with Blake Luscombe accounting for the lone goal of the middle frame.

With Jordan Brown serving time for a head check, which came with a 5-minute major and a game misconduct, Meteors’ Daniel Singer broke Mark Sinclair’s shut-out bid late in the third, which Austin Brown answered shortly thereafter for the 5–1 final score.

This week’s games include a visit to the Haldimand County Caledonia Centre by both the Welland Canadians on Thursday and the St. Catharines Falcons on Saturday night before taking on the Canadians again on Sunday night, this time in Welland.

The back-to-back Sutherland Cup winning Corvairs are looking for a third cup win this spring and judging by how they are doing at this juncture of the regular season, nothing short of a total collapse will keep them from getting that opportunity.
