Good-by Falcons… for now

CALEDONIA – Last Wednesday, the Caledonia Corvairs finished off the St. Catharines Falcons for Golden Horseshoe Conference title with a 4-3 win. This Wednesday, April 9th, at the Haldimand Centre Arena, in Caledonia, they begin the next phase in their quest for the Jr. B Hockey’s Sutherland Cup.

CALEDONIA – Last Wednesday, the Caledonia Corvairs finished off the St. Catharines Falcons for Golden Horseshoe Conference title with a 4-3 win. This Wednesday, April 9th, at the Haldimand Centre Arena, in Caledonia, they begin the next phase in their quest for the Jr. B Hockey’s Sutherland Cup.

The semi-final round will bring the Waterloo Siskins into the mix as the winners of the Midwestern Conference title over Stratford.

But last week’s win may not be the last the Corvairs see of the pesky Falcons. The other semi-final series is between the Leamington Flyers, who won the Western Ontario title, and the Falcons, who made it into the semi-final round as the wildcard team. The winners of each of these series will face-off for the Sutherland Cup.

Upcoming Falcons games in this series include April 10, at the Waterloo Rec Complex; April 12, 7:30 at home, April 13, Waterloo and April 16, back in Caledonia.

Last Wednesday the Corvairs eliminated the Falcons four games to one, thanks to their offensive power, solid defense and great goaltending by Colin Furlong.

Cody Brown scored the only goal of the first period assisted by Jordan Peacock and Spencer Gourlay.

Todd Ratchford made his presence in the lineup felt with the second goal of the game at 2:09 to give the Corvairs a 2-0 lead.

Cody Brown notched his second of the game on a powerplay left over from the first period, at 19 second. Gourlay and Peacock assisted. The Falcons finally got on the scoreboard at 3:57 of the third period to end Colin Furlong’s shutout hopes, but that was quickly answered by Jeff Malott from Connor Murphy and Connor Patton at 5:15.

Falcon’s Yani Rllis and Tommy Barszcz scored late St. Catharines goals, which did nothing to change the outcome.
