Pro-Fit Corvairs late surge crushes Canucks

NIAGARA FALLS – The Caledonia Jr. B Pro-Fit Corvairs doubled the Niagara Falls Canucks 4-2 Friday October 21 at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls with a strong effort, after a shaky start.

The Canucks capitalized on a first period powerplay with Anton Trubin off for tripping. That would stand as the second period started with Niagara leading, 1-0. Canucks’ Frank Pucci put the Corvairs behind 2-0 at 7:32 of the second period with a powerplay goal.

Caledonia broke out at 12:51 when Zachary Core netted a Caledonia powerplay goal. Kyle West made it a new game with 45 seconds remaining on the second period clock.

Quentin Maksimovich scored what would be the game winner at 7:14 with Evan Bidenti adding one more for the 4-2 final.

Caledonia remains on top of the Golden Horseshoe Conference heading into this week’s matchups, which includes a very important showdown with the second place St. Catharines Falcons, in St. Kitts, Friday Oct. 28, beginning at 7 p.m.

They return home to the Haldimand Centre Arena the next evening when Plenham Panthers are in town for a 7:30 start. Fort Erie will be visiting Caledonia Monday night, Oct. 31st, at 7:30.
