sean Jan 5, 2018 - 12:34pm

Five third-period goals were too much to overcome, as the Rockland Nationals doubled the Colts 6-3 Thursday night at the Ed Lumley Arena.

The night could be summed up at the 13:47 mark of the third with Liam Lascelle out of the net for the extra attacker for an upcoming Rockland penalty, when one of the Colts forwards made a drop pass from centre ice that curled into the Colts net. Rockland added two short-handed markers in the frame to seal the victory.

Tommy Tanner (with his 8th of the season) paced the Colts offence with a goal and an assist. Konnor MacCormick (14) and the newest Colts forward Noah Williams (1) also scored.  

Rockland outshot the Colts 41-22 with Liam Lascelle getting tagged with the loss.

Cornwall's record falls to 20-15-4-1 (45 points) in sixth place in the CCHL standings.

The Hardest Working Colts Player award went to Tommy Tanner. Three Stars were first Shawn Kennedy (ROC), second Trevor Coykendall (ROC), and third Tommy Tanner (COR). JD Pogue was honoured as the Colts Player of the Month.

Junior 'A' Colts best Hawks in Alexandria

sean Dec 20, 2017 - 12:02pm

In what appears to have been the final visit of the Hawkesbury Hawks to the Glengarry Sports Palace, the Cornwall Colts handed the wayward squad a 4-2 loss, in Friday night CCHL action.

JD Pogue had three points for the winning side, including a pair of goals, while South Glengarrian Ethan Mulhearn found the net once, scoring what would stand as the game-winning marker. Justin McRae also scored for Cornwall, while additional assists went to E. Mulhearn, Tommy Tanner, David Poirier, and Brant Woodside, as Liam Lascelle got the win in net with 36 saves.

Early on, the Hawks struggled to find the target offensively, mustering just six shots on goal in the first period. By the midpoint of the game, the Colts were outshooting Hawkesbury 22-11. The second half of the contest saw the Hawks turn up the heat, but it wasn't enough.

With the loss, Hawkesbury's "home" record in Alexandria dropped to 3-2, after winning their first three at the Palace. Nonetheless, the Hawks remain in second place in their division. The team is hoping to return to its official home digs in January.

As for the Colts, the win last Friday night was the team's sixth in a row, as the club finds itself now third in the standings, just two points behind Hawkesbury.

We have a photo gallery from the Dec. 15 Hawks-Colts game available online here.
