Last season’s powerhouse champions, Cornwall Colts started off this year victorious but saw their 3 game win streak come to an end. Last Thursday night saw them fall to the Cumberland Grads in a 3-2 shootout loss and the following night, the Smith Falls Bears took a 1-0 shutout win.
It’s nothing to have Cornwall fans worried about. It’s still very early in the season and a lot of new faces on the Colts need to have that time to gel. Despite the losses, Cornwall’s starting goaltender Jordan Piccolino is incredible in net. If it wasn’t for him and the Colts red hot defence, these games would be blown out of the water.
Scoring chances are still abundant for the Colts despite only registering 9 goals. However, they need to somehow find a way to turn those chances into pucks in the back of the net.
Pucks in the back of the net is exactly what happened last Sunday in Nepean. Cornwall snapped their 2 game losing streak with a 6-3 win over the Nepean Raiders. It was a tight pace game all the way into the third with a 3-3 tie. Ulrick, Menniti, and Pearson supplied the Colts with firepower to transform the tie into a win.Goaltender James Edwardson who had his first start since under going wisdom teeth removal was pulled in the first period. Jordan Piccolino picked up the win. The Colts are back in front of a hometown crowd this Thursday, September 19th when the Calreton Place Canadiens invade the Ed Lumley Arena. Puck drop is 7:30.
