CALEDONIA – It was a good week for the movie “Black Panther” but not so much for the Pelham Panthers. The Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs closed out the 2017 to 2018 Jr. B hockey season over the weekend with a home-and-home series with the Panthers.
Saturday night the Corvairs defeated the Panthers 6-2, in Pelham, followed by a 3-0 Corvairs win the next day to finish the regular season first in the division, first in the Conference and first overall in OHL Jr. B hockey.
The first hurdle will be a low one as the 45-4 Corvairs take on the 10-32-1-7 Fort Erie Meteors. The series began Tuesday night, in Caledonia. Game no.2, is in Fort Erie Wednesday, Feb. 28th, Game No. 3 is back in Caledonia Friday night, and Saturday in Fort Erie. If a Game no.5 is needed it will be played at the Haldimand Centre, Wednesday night, Mar. 7th.
Elsewhere around the Conference, the St. Catharines Falcons celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise against the Pelham Panthers, Ancaster plays Welland, and Thorold takes on Niagara Falls.
In the Midwestern Division, the Brantford 99’ers and the Stratford Warriors open their series as well.
