Corvairs dodge a bullet in Fort Erie
CALEDONIA – The Corvairs dodged a bullet Saturday night in Fort Erie, when the second last team in the conference took the first place Corvairs to OT before losing to Caledonia 4-3 in extra time.
Griffin Roubos scored a powerplay goal at 17:57 of the first frame assisted by Adam Craievcich and Jesse Barwell. Once again, the Corvairs massively outshot their opponents but eeked out a win.
The Meteors were outshot 19-5 in the second period, however each team scored one goal. Matt Weston scored for Caledonia at 7:31 from TJ Hughes and Isaac Taylor but was matched by Meteors’ Bradey Lee to complete the second period with Caledonia leading 2-1.
The game almost got way from the Corvairs in the third after Marco Lariccia and Drew Passero. But a late goal scored by Owen Lane from Eddie Shultz and Mark Bzowey with under two minutes remaining sent the game into OT.
It was Craievich, which ended the game at 1:23 of OT for the two points. They would need that point. The Corvairs are in first place in the Conference but by only one thin point.
Niagara Falls is in second place with 30 points however have played three more games than the Corvairs. The St. Catharines Falcons are in third place with 28 points in 19 games played, one more than Caledonia.
And don’t forget about Ancaster, in fourth place with 26 points but have played two less games than Caledonia, five less than Niagara Falls, and three less games than St. Catharines.
Last Tuesday, in a game that missed out deadline, the Corvairs defeated the Av’s 4-2. This coming week, the Corvairs get a shot at the Falcons in St. Catharines Friday night, Nov. 10th before hosting the Niagara Falls Canucks, Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Haldimand Centre Arena.
