CALEDONIA — Family, friends and fans of the Caledonia Pro-fit Corvairs have returned once again to the Haldimand County Caledonia Centre (HCCC) as the Corvairs resume with business as usual.

On Saturday, October 7, the Corvairs took on the Port Colborne Sailors at the HCCC. Unfortunately, a game sheet was not provided to the Corvairs website, but a final winning score of 4-2 was had by the Corvairs.

On Sunday, October 8, the Corvairs hosted the Fort Erie Meteors within the HCCC to see a learning curve in the game. The first period saw no goals, but two penalties, one for either side. In the second, the Corvairs secured a lead with a goal from Zack Lewis, from Dylan Wardell, fed from Sami Douglas. The Meteors put one up, before Zachary Naherne scored for the Corvairs to maintain the lead with three minutes left in the period.

In the third however, the Corvairs were unable to secure responses to the Meteors goals, who earned two to close the game 2-3. This delivered the Corvairs first loss of the season.

But after an initial loss to the Sailors in their first seasonal match, the Corvairs came back to return the favour within the Vale Centre on Friday, October 13. In the first period, Jayden Lammel broke the scoring with a pass from Nathan Duplessis, from Markus Dempewolf. The Sailors responded minutes later, but the Corvairs persisted with another goal earned by Zack Lewis, fed from Owen Rainey from Steve LaForme. After assisting, Nathan Duplessis did some scoring of his own, fed from Markus Dempewolf with four minutes left in the period. The Sailors offered another goal, but Markus Dempewolf put one of his own away fed by Jayden Lammel and Nathan Duplessis.

In the third period, beginning with a 4-3 lead, the Corvairs secured their victory with a goal three minutes in by Sami Douglas, fed from Zachary Naherne and Owen Rainey. To close out the game 6-3, Brayden Russell scored from a pass by Dylan Wardell.

On Saturday, October 14, the Hamilton Kitty B’s visited the HCCC for a very close game against the Corvairs. The Corvairs broke scoring in the first period with two goals, one by Sami Douglas from Noah Baltzer, and a second from Markus Dempewolf fed from Will Bray and Zachary Naherne. This would close scoring for the Corvairs, as in the second the B’s earned two, and in the third period, another. This brought the Corvairs second loss of the season 2-3 to the B’s.

Their next away games will see them visit the Vale Centre again to face the Saillors on Friday, October 20, then another match up with the Fort Erie Meteors on Saturday, October 21 at the Fort Erie Leisureplex, then on Friday, October 27, the Corvairs will visit the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre to face the St. Catharines Falcons.

Finally returning home on Saturday, October 28, the Corvairs will host St. Catharines within the HCCC at 7:30 p.m., EST, for a rematch from the night previous.
