CALEDONIA – Saturday night at the Haldimand Centre in Caledonia, the Pro-Fit Corvairs and the Welland Jr. B Canadians were tied at 3-3, after two late period Welland goals scored at 18:20 and 19:10.
Adam Craievich and Bobby Harrison gave Caledonia a 2-0 lead before Maliek Powell got the Canadians’ motor running at 10:39. TJ Hughes restored Caledonia’s two-goal cushion at 15:21, but Welland’s Jordan Simpson and Brendan Rylott quickly evened the score.
The Canadians took the lead at 4:57 of the second period, but Eddie Shultz got that back within 30 seconds and the Canadians and the Corvairs were tied again at 4-4, but not for long.
Greg Anthony made Caledonia pay for a penalty at 11:06 after Dravin Mayer was tagged for a head-check.
Craievich evened the score and Isaac Taylor scored late second period goals to take back the lead at 6-5 with 20 minutes left.
Bobby Harrison scored the insurance goal at 1:17 of the third period, which held to the end. Pierce Charleston and Brandon McCorriston shared the win.
They had an easier time in Welland against the Blackhawks. Corvairs’ goalie Brandon McCorriston came within five minutes of a shut out when the Thorold Blackhawks’ Brendan Chariton scored Blackhawks’ only goal of a 7-1 loss at the hands of the Corvairs, Thursday night in Thorold.
Craievich opened all three periods with Harrison, Jamie Lauzon, Bailey Fletcher and Jesse Barwell adding to the win.
Looking ahead to this week’s games, the Corvairs will be in Buffalo on Tuesday night in a game that will miss our deadline, and will host the Fort Erie Meteors, on October 15, at the Haldimand Centre.
