CALEDONIA – The Pro-Fit Corvairs had an easy weekend, defeating the Pelham Panthers 10-2, Friday night followed by a 18-0 trouncing of the Buffalo Regals, Saturday night in Caledonia. The Regals, in their first year in the league, were outshot 80-9, that’s right, 80-9.
The wins padded the Pro-Fit Corvairs’ first place hold on the division while the Buffalo loss sunk the Regals even further into the sub-basement with an embarrassing 0-22 record.
It is questionable if the Regals will finish the season at all. They are being pummelled by every other team in the league and it is having an effect on the commitment of both the team management and the players. Saturday night they showed up at the Haldimand Centre Arena with 10 skaters and a goalie.
Corvairs goalie Daniel Chenard could have stayed on the bench all night and the Corvairs still would have won the game, picking up probably his easiest shutout of his career.
It seemed like Kodie Oude Vashaar, on the other hand, could have needed oxygen and treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after standing in front of 80 shots making 62 saves.
Friday night in St. Catharines, the Falcons crushed Buffalo 21-1.
Not wishing to watch the bloodbath, there were only 90 fans to begin the game and even fewer by the time the game ended.
The Corvairs will have to give themselves a cold splash of water to wake them up for this week’s games, which will be much tougher than last.
Friday and Saturday nights they will be up against the second place St. Catharines Falcons, in St. Catharines Friday night at 7 p.m., followed by a Saturday night return match in Caledonia at 7:30 p.m.
