CALEDONIA – It may be some kind of record, but it not, certainly an oddity to have everyone except the goaltender get at least one point in a hockey game. But that is exactly what happened at the Haldimand Centre Arena in Caledonia Friday night as the first place Pro-Fit Corvairs easily blew away the Fort Erie Meteors in four straight games.
The series opened in Caledonia Feb. 27th, with a 13-2 Caledonia win. Game 2 was a little less embarrassing in front of their hometown crowd, but the Meteors lost 9-2. Game 3 last Friday was 16-1. The only sign of life the Fort Erie Panthers showed was at 3:36 of the first period when Alex McAteer slipped one past Brandon McCorriston.
The end came for the Meteors on Saturday, March 3, when the Corvairs took an 8-3 win for the sweep.
At the end of the four games, the Corvairs out-scored the Meteors 38-8. The league playoff stats show Caledonia Corvairs 12 players on the playoff scoring list, the first six positions are taken by Corvairs.
Although goaltending has not been a problem this year at all, nineteen of the Caledonia wins this year could easily have been shut-out wins with the opposition scoring one goal, even in blowouts. Even at that, Caledonia goaltenders combined for nine shoutouts to date.
The Corvairs will wait for a partner for the second round. As of Tuesday evening, The St. Catharines Falcons lead the Pelham Panthers 2-0 in their series; Ancaster leads Welland 2-0 and Niagara Falls leads Thorold two games to none.
