Pro-Fit Corvairs massacre Meteors twice weekend

CALEDONIA – Saturday night in Fort Erie, the 35-1-1 first place Corvairs capitalized on the strength of their special teams for the second leg of a chippy home-and-home series with the Meteors, and came out with a convincing 7-2 route of the seventh place-holders in the Golden Horseshoe conference of the Jr. B, GOJHL.

Bad blood began in the second period Friday night in Caledonia with every player on the ice paired off behind the Corvairs’ net and it stayed ugly the rest of the game, which Caledonia won 6-3.

Saturday’s game started well for Caledonia beginning with Cody Brown’s powerplay marker at 2:20, from Matt Quilty and Ryan Blunt. Less than a minute later it was 2-0 after Jeffrey Malott gathered up a loose puck and scored, unassisted at 3:14.

Referee, Jeff Lawson, was busy taking notes as both teams squared off for a team Greco wrestling demonstration behind the Corvairs net. The mealy began when a Fort Erie player crashed into the Caledonia net following a rush. Goalie Collin Furlong felt he could have at least tried to stop and took it personal. Next thing you know, every player on the ice was literally, on the ice, throwing punches. (Photo by Jim Windle)

Connor Murphy piled on Caledonia’s third goal at 11:22 from Spencer Gourlay and Kyler Nixon. But late in the period the Meteors came to life accounting for the last two goals of the period scored by Branden Kavaratzis and Alex Hurren to go to the dressing room down by only one goal with 40 minutes left to play.

The Meteors had burned themselves out by the late goings in the second period and the Corvairs took over with three late period goals. Mitch Brown notched the Corvair’s fourth of the night and second powerplay goal at 15:56 from Nixon, followed by Jake Brown’s first of two goals on the night scored at 16:29, and Nixon’s buzzer beater officially scored at 20:00 of the period.

With the game well in hand, the Corvairs took their feet off the peddles and coasted to a 7-2 final on Jake Brown’s powerplay goal at 8:42. Nixon was in on that goal too, as he enjoyed a 5-point game.
