CALEDONIA – Scoring one goal a period is kind of a drought to the kind of offensive power the Caledonia Corvairs are used to mustering, but that is all it took to defeat the Ancaster Avalanche Friday night at the Haldimand Arena.
The win put Caledonia three points ahead of the second place St. Catharines Falcons.
Caledonia’s first period goal was scored at 13:44 by Jayme Forslund, who whipped a hard wrister, high stick side on Ancaster’s Blake Richards, assisted by Connor Murphy and Matt Quilty.[scroller]
Spencer Gourlay provided the Corvairs with the only goal of the middle frame with assists going to Quilty and Murphy, at 3:34.
Connor Patton made it 3-0 at 4:18 of the third period with an unassisted effort, while Colin Furlong was holding the fort at the other end of the ice.
Furlong’s shut-out was ruined by Max Balinson at 18:33, but the Corvairs added another win to their impressive 25-1-1 resumé.
Tuesday, Dec. 17th, the Corvairs shuffle off to Buffalo for a date with the league bottom dwellers, the Regals. Then on the weekend, the Forts Erie Meteors visit the Haldimand Arena Friday night, and offer their fans a second night at home Saturday when Thorold are in town, both games are a 7:30 start.
