CALEDONIA – This week’s Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs wrap up begins last Tuesday, Jan. 23rd, when the Corvairs were force-fed the bitter taste of defeat to the St. Catharines Falcons, at the Jack Gatecliff Rink, 5-2.
Once again, as has been the case all season, the Corvairs held a huge shots on goal advantage, in this case, outshooting St. Kitts 40-24. That is only an interesting statistic but the bottom line is always the score.
The Falcons led 1-0 after the first period when Lucas Smilsky scored at 17:06. The Hawks scored two powerplay goals in a fight filled second period. Liam Dunda and Matt Busby made it a 3-0 game with 20 minutes remaining.
Cal Davis and Owen Lane, with an extra attacker, scored for the Corvairs but it was not far enough. Pierce Charleson suffered the loss in the Pro-Fit Corvairs’ net.
Saturday, Jan. 27th, the same work ethic was expended, but the results were much better as the Corvairs beat the Niagara Falls Canucks, 4-1 at home.
Scoring for Caledonia were Eddie Schultz Bobby Harrison, Andrew Burns and Jamie Lauzon into an empty net. Frank Pucci scored for the Canucks. Brandon McCorrison earned the win for Caledonia.
Monday, the Fort Erie Meteors were in Caledonia and left with a basket full of nothing as the Corvairs chalked up a 6-0 shutout win with Bobby Harrison leading the way with two goals. Adding to the offence were Brad Lindsay, Nolan Gardiner Adam Craievich and Sean O’Brien. Pierce Charleson collected his third shut out of the season.
The Corvairs are back in action Saturday night, Feb. 3rd, against the Ancaster Avalanche, at the Morgan Firestone Arena and the next night, they do it again, this time in Caledonia, at 7:30 p.m.
