Cornwall Colts corral the Kemptville 73’s in their own barn 6 to 4 in a Tuesday evening excursion. Cornwall drew first blood at 2:15 when Andrew Langlois, with helpers from Fraser and Krenn, slammed into a crowd to beat Jocob Biron as Kemptville came out flat footed. Brazier up the wall over to Lammi onto the pads of Dax Easter that bounced out to Emile Trottier on the doorstep to pump it between the pipes at 9:46 to even it up. Cornwall outgunned Kemptville by 8 to 6 with the 73’s unsuccessful PP attempt. Cornwall on a stampede to make it 4 to 2 for Cornwall at end of 2nd. Henry with Bennett downtown with Hunter Brazier in tow to put Kemptville behind by one at 5:33 to start the final twenty. End to end criss crossing through the neutral zone over the line to knot it up at four. Failure on assignment after a lost draw launched the tiebreaker at 9:22. Insurance goal for the Colts 14:17 to make it 6 – 4. Cornwall only outshot Kemptville by two, 12 to 10 with no PP’s for either.

Back on the road for three more battles with Friday into the Den of the Smiths Falls Bears, currently holding down the first spot in the Robinson Division, looking for retribution after the last meeting with Kemptville. The Bears dominated their Den as they devoured their prey with a 6 – 1 victory to hand the 73’s their third straight loss.

Sunday evening onto the ice of PMC to face the Pembroke Lumber Kings looking for redemption after a 4 – 3 loss in front of Kemptville fans, and to determine the winner in a rubber match. Rubber was flying everywhere as the contest turned into a 68 SOG and 8 to 6 free for all as Kemptville turned their losing streak around. 

The 73’s will roll into Cornwall to harness the Colts on Thursday, December 1 for an evening event and will be at home the following night to meet with the Carleton Place Canadians.

Hockey with EDGE…see you around the wall.
