CALEDONIA – The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs only had one game this week, but it was a big one. The 19-0 Corvairs put it on the line Saturday night at the Haldimand Centre Arena against the 16-2-0, second place St. Catharines Falcons.
It was the consistent, all-line balanced roaster from the goal line on out that has been the benchmark of the Pro-Fit Corvairs over the past couple of years and this year’s 19-0 record is proof that whatever the formula is, it’s working.
The closest team to them right now is the second place, St. Catharines Falcons, who are now 16-3-0 after Saturday’s 7-4 Caledonia win.
The Corvairs drew first blood with Jordan Peacock’s goal at 2:58, from Jeff Malott and Kyler Nixon.
The Falcons answered at 3:20 but 30 seconds later the Corvairs had the lead with Scott Dorian’s go ahead goal from Mitch Brown and Brooker Muir.
Cody Brown made it 3-1 at 10:16 before St. Kitts recorded their second goal at 14:29. Then with 28 seconds left in the period, Connor Patton scored.
Patton opened the second period the way he closed the first to give Caledonia a 5-2 lead, 1:29 into the period. Assists came from Spencer Gourlay and Matt Quilty.
Brennan Feasby tallied for the Falcons with an unassisted goal at 5:54.
Peacock made it 6-3 and Muir added another by the end of the second sending the teams into the second intermission with the Corvairs leading 7-3.
The game got rougher and rougher as it went on until the penalty filled third period.
Kyle Woodhouse accounted for the last goal of the game at 3:48 of the third for the 7-4 final score.
The Pro-Fit Corvairs don’t see action again until Saturday Nov. 9 when Ancaster returns to the Haldimand Arena for a 7:30 start.
