GOJHL – The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs have 31 points after weekend wins, good enough to put six points between themselves and second place St. Catharines.
Monday night was an 11-1 walk-over against the Fort Erie Meteors, Saturday night the Corvairs easily downed the Pelham Panthers 8-2, and in a nose-to-nose battle for first place, Friday night, in St. Catharines, the Corvairs came out on top 5-3.
Halloween night, Monday, the Pro-Fit Corvairs scared up an 11-1 trouncing of the Fort Erie Meteors.
After toying with the meteors through the scoreless first period, the Corvairs unleashed three second period goals scored by Adam Craievich, Kyle West and Zachary Core.
The third period was all Caledonia as West, Craievich, Austin Ulet, Bailet Fletcher, Trent Mallette, Evan Bidenti, Christian Polillo and Holden Hrysko foiled the Meteors net interrupted for a moment by Fort Erie’s Chase White’s goal at 11:14.
Friday night at the Jack Gatecliff Rink in St. Kitts, the steady pressure of the Corvairs and a solid three period effort paid off with the 5-3 win in a game that could have consequences later on.
Even this early in the season, it’s beginning to look like a two horse race this coming spring.
Adam Craievich scored at 10:12 of the first period from Brandon Lindberg, Austin Ulett after the teams felt each other out for the first half of the first.
Falcons John DiLorenzo returned the favour at 14:25, but as the seconds wound down Brandon Lindberg caught a break and scored short handed with 12 seconds left to close the period with the Corvairs leading 2-1.
The teams traded a goal each in the second, Craievich’s second of the night, to head into the third period with the Corvairs clinging to a 3-2 lead.
Bailey Fletcher added to that at 1:26, and Craievich potted his hat trick goal, on a powerplay at 13:12.
The Falcons got one of them back but the Corvairs held the fort the rest of the way for the 5-3 win.
It was a shooting gallery for the Corvairs Saturday night at the Haldimand Centre as the Pelham Panthers were out shot 46-13, and out scored 8-2. Pelham’s two goals came seven seconds apart at 15:14 and 15:21, but the Corvairs quickly took back control for the easy win.
Monday night, the Corvairs completed their week’s assignments by defeating the Fort Erie Meteors 11-1 in Caledonia.
This week, the Panthers will have to endure another night with the Corvairs in Pelham, before the Corvairs take another kick at the Meteors in Fort Erie Saturday night. Caledonia shouldn’t have a problem adding two more wins to their column but on Sunday, Nov. 6th, they will have a chance to put some more distance between themselves and the St. Catharines Falcons, at 7:30 p.m., at the Haldimand Arena in Caledonia.
