CALEDONIA – The Ancaster Avalanche are not the Pelham Panthers, but they could be swept in four games in Round #2 of the GOJHL playoffs, Tuesday night. The Corvairs are ahead 3-0 in games, wining 2-1, 3-0 and 8-1.
The Av’s gave the Corvairs all they could handle in taking Game #1 by a slim 2-1 margin.
Ancaster led 1-0 after the first period on Chris Klack’s goal, but from that moment on, Caledonia goaltender Kevin Entmaa closed the door while his team tried to find a chink in the armor of Av’s net minder Blake Richards.
Connor Patton finally found that key at 14:40 of the second period with assists from Ryan Blunt and Connor Bramwell. Erick Delaurentis recorded the winner at 7:43 of the third with Matthew Hore and Tyler Lapore.
Game #2 was played in Ancaster Saturday night. The Corvairs registered a 3-0 win and a 2-0 lead in the series. One goal a period is all it took as Lapore capitalized on a powerplay at 5:56 assisted by Delaurentis and Hore.
The penalty bug bit the Av’s again in the second as Hore make it 2-0 with Cole Nagy serving time for a head-check.
Delaurentis closed out the game with an empty netter from Kyle Tanev to protect Kevin Entmaa’s shutout.
Game #3 was a typical Corvairs blowout as all four lines produced, just like they have all season. It was 2-0 after one, and 6-1 after two periods. Leading the Corvairs offense was Matthew Hore with two goals and two assists.
