Weekend GOJHL roundup: Kilty B’s remain undefeated, Corvairs win two
The Hamilton Kilty B’s remain undefeated after a pair of weekend wins in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League action.
The Kilty B’s topped the St. Catharines Falcons 4-2 at home Saturday before blanking the Welland Junior Canadians 5-0 in Welland Sunday night.
Hamilton remain atop the Golden Horseshoe Conference with a 6-0 mark. They have scored 24 goals and permitted just six.
Former Falcon Dylan Abbamont scored twice while Connor Haynes and Liam Galton added singles in Hamilton’s win over the Falcons.
Kyle Glenney netted both goals for St. Catharines, which dropped to 5-2-0-1.
“Thought Hamilton was the better team,” Falcons coach Tyler Bielby said. “They earned their win and we did a lot of watching, particularly in the first 40 minutes. As we continue to teach, it’s very important that we do not get out worked. Tonight we did and the result was a loss.
“Their goals were grade A scoring chances that were the result of mental errors and not being in the right spots. Hamilton took advantage of those mistakes and made us pay.”
The Falcons trailed 4-0 heading into the third before scoring twice.
“On a positive note, I thought we found a different gear in the third,” Bielby said. “Still lots of room for improvement, but I thought we matched their intensity, and as a result we were rewarded with a couple goals and got ourselves back into the game. Too little, too late unfortunately.”
Meteors 3 Canucks 2
Antonio Pugliese’s second goal of the game with less than five minutes remaining was the difference as the Fort Erie Meteors edged the visiting Niagara Falls Canucks 3-2 Saturday.
Nathan Zadorozny also scored for the Mets.
Tanner McEachern and Austin Mumby replied for the Canucks.
Corvairs 3 Blackhawks 2
Goals by Ethan Doyle and Noah Baltzer in the third period lifted the Caledonia Corvairs past the visiting Thorold Blackhawks Saturday at the Haldimand County Centre.
Markus Dempewolf gave Caledonia a 1-0 lead in the first before Harris Goan and Tyson Wassink put the Hawks up 2-1 after two.
Blackhawks 6 Panthers 5
Jack Sykes’ goal 33 seconds into overtime capped a furious comeback as the visiting Blackhawks rallied from a 5-1 deficit to earn the win in Pelham Sunday afternoon.
Alec Koschanow, Tanner Hunt, Nicholas Rubino, Rian Meisner and Nathan Kelly also scored for the Hawks.
Calvin Petrovsky netted three for the Panthers while Florian Xhekaj and Lucas Jasmins added singles.
