CALEDONIA – When the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs faced the Buffalo Regals the outcome was a given, the only question was, by how much. That ended up being a 9-0 shutout win at the Haldimand Arena in Caledonia.
The second season Regals, recorded only three wins in 50 games last season.
The Corvairs took their fifth straight win of the new season with ease, but outside of a hard fought come from behind 4-3 win over last year’s Sutherland Cup winning Elmira Sugar Kings, the rest of the wins have been against the league’s weaker sister teams.
Tuesday night’s game hosting the St. Catharines Falcons celebrating their 50th year of operation, will miss our deadline but stacks up to be much more of a challenge.
The Falcons were mathematically tied with 10 points each, however St. Catharines has recorded a loss having played one more game heading into the showdown Tuesday night.
Saturday night Pierce Charleson got the call to start and after facing a grand total of 19 shots, recording his first shutout of the season.
Bailey Fletcher led the charge with three goals with playmaker Joshua DeFarias earning five assists.
Fletcher and DJ Hughes scored 15 seconds apart to give the Corvairs a 2-0, first period lead. Adam Craievich, two by Fletcher, and Isaac Taylor made it 6-0 after 40 minutes and Craievich added another at 1:44 of the third. Cole Mayo closed out the game with Caledonia’s eighth and ninth goals.
Elsewhere around the league, Stratford leads the Midwestern Conference with a 5-1 record, Leamington leads the West with a 5-0 record before Sunday’s games.
The schedule gets a little tougher in this week’s schedule as they leave the Haldimand Arena for the first road game of the season against the Ancaster Avalanche, Saturday Sept 30, at the Morgan Firestone Arena. Sunday, they travel to Welland Sunday, Oct 1st.
