CALEDONIA/FORT ERIE – With a huge edge over the rest of the league, the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs are on a roll and show no signs of looking back. A home-and-home series between the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs and the Fort Erie Meteors had a predictable outcome. The defending Sutherland Cup Champions and first place Corvairs and the second last place Meteors met together, Friday and Saturday nights.

Saturday night at the Haldimand Centre, the Corvairs earned a 3-0 shutout win in a fight-filled affair. There was no scoring in the first period as Meteors goalie Liam Conway turned aside 24 Caledonia shots in the first 20 minutes. Meanwhile, Marc Sinclair faced only two shots.

Connor Bramwell scored both second period goals for Caledonia, with assists earned by Jamie Forslund, Mitch Purdle and Connor Patton with two.

Forslund and Tristan Drescher went toe-to-toe at 5:13 of the middle frame and were both tossed from the game.

Patton accounted for the Corvairs’ third goal at 2:50 of the third period with a short-hander. Riley Vanhorne assisted.

There was more rough stuff when Bramwell and Josh Micallif dropped the gloves at 6:28, with both parties sent to the showers early.

In total, the Corvairs outshot the Meteors 54-22.

Saturday night, in Fort Erie, the Meteors put up some resistance skating with the high-flying Corvairs for the first 20 minutes, which ended in a 1-1 tie.

Kyle Tanev opened the scoring for Caledonia at 5:54 with a short-handed goal assisted by Jake Brown and Austin McEneny. Wade Kenny evened the score at 8:22.

The Meteors jumped ahead 2-1 early in the third period, with Holden Garlent scoring on a leftover powerplay from the second period at the 20-second mark.

Trailing the Meteors was something the Corvairs were certainly not used to, and that motivation led Caledonia to four-goal charge. Luke Sinclair, Kyle Tanev, and Connor Patton took the lead back and Tanev closed the book with an empty netter for the 5-3 final.

The wins further advanced the distance between themselves, now 27-2-1, and second place Welland at 19-9-1. Heading into this week’s games, the Corvairs are first overall in the 26-team Jr. B loop.

This Friday, December 19th, the Corvairs travel to Niagara Falls. They bring it on home to Caledonia Saturday night to face the 17-9-4 St. Catharines Falcons.
