CALEDONIA – The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs are now 18-0 this season after last week’s 3-2 OT win against Ancaster, Friday night, and Saturday’s 8-2 win in Fort Erie.
After barely slipping by Ancaster the night before, the Fort Erie Meteors were unfortunate enough to face the brunt of Caledonia’s frustration from the night before.
When Mike Boles scored for Fort Erie at 3:36, the Corvairs opened up on the Meteors firing 24 shots at the Meteors goal in the first period alone.
Connor Murphy evened the score 16 seconds later and added the go-ahead goal at 7:47. Matt Quilty closed the first period scoring at 11:44 with Caledonia leading 3-1.
Cory Brown and Brooker Muir added two more for Caledonia in the second period while Colin Furlong kept the door closed at the other end of the ice.
Spencer Gourlay made it 6-1 at 2:16 of the third period with a short-handed goal assisted by Justin Abraham and Patton.
Fort Erie scored their last goal of the contest at 4:30, which Murphy answered one minute later on a powerplay.
Jeffrey Malott finished the Meteors off at 17:12 from Kyler Nixon and Jake Brown.
The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs dodged the bullet earlier this week, keeping their perfect 17-0 season alive after a 3-2 overtime win over the Ancaster Avalanche at the Haldimand Arena in Caledonia, Friday night.
The Corvairs got he early jump on Ancaster in the first period, but could not solve Blake Richards in the Av’s net. The momentum turned as the period went on.
Ancaster made it 1-0 when Luke Zupan redirected a point shot from Davis Eccles at 5:15 during an Av’s powerplay with T.J. Thrivierge in the box for crosschecking.
Nine seconds later, it was 2-0 after Jake Milligan caught Colin Furlong still thinking about the last one.
But from that point on, he was in the pocket and reading the game well the rest of the way.
Caledonia’s first goal of the game came at 6:39 when Connor Murphy used his speed to break through the Ancaster defense and make it 2-1, assisted by Connor Patter and Cody Brown.
As good as Furlong was, Richards was even better, turning aside a total of 40 shots by the end of the game, while Furlong stood his ground on 22 of 24 Ancaster shots.
Spencer Gourlay tied the game with a powerplay goal at 2:33 of the second period. Despite outshooting the Av’s 12-3 in the third period, there was no more scoring and the game went into overtime.
Kyler Nixon sent the Caledonia fans home happy with his OT goal scored from Mitch Brown and Connor Patton at 2:53 of the extra frame.
The Corvairs will not see action again until Saturday, Nov. 2nd, when they will host the St. Catharines Falcons at the Haldimand Centre Arena in Caledonia. Puck drops at 7:30.
