Last season’s powerhouse champions, Cornwall Colts started off this year victorious but saw their 3 game win streak come to an end. Thursday night saw them fall to the Cumberland Grads in a 3-2 shootout loss and last 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.
Cornwall’s other strong netminder, James Edwardson is expected to get the call this Sunday when the Colts visit the Nepean Sportsplex to take on the Nepean Raiders. Game time there is 2:30.
The Colts will be back in front of a hometown crowd next Thursday, September 19th. The Carleton Place Jr. Canadiens will invade the Ed Lumley Arena. Puck drop is 7:30.
