Chargers and Cards to settle matters on Thursday
by Randy Pascal
The St Charles College Cardinals staved off elimination with a 6-4 win over the Confederation Chargers Monday night at Carmichael Arena.
Captain Bryceton Lalonde showed the way for SCC, drilling home a hat trick, with Joe Guzzo, Tanner Webkamigad and Michael Morrier
adding a goal apiece.
Ryan Fournier, with a pair, Ethan Boyd and Mason Blinn replied for Confederation, who have proven that they can play with the
Cardinals, five on five, but continue to shoot themselves in the foot with unnecessary penalties.
The Chargers had stopped the Cardinals by the exact same score Saturday night. With the glut of recent snow/ice days, the best of five series has been
trimmed to a best of three, in order to accommodate the upcoming NOSSA championships next week.
The third and deciding game in set for Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex. In Division II play, the
Manitoulin Mustangs were full measure for a 1-0 championship final series lead, posting a dominating 5-0 whitewash over the Lockerby Vikings,
also on Monday.
Nathan Francis Debassige, Zachary Paul, Gregory Doane, Tait Wallace and Ethan Corbiere all pulled the trigger for the islanders, with
Tyler Hughson looking sharp in turning aside all 25 shots that he faced in a shutout effort between the pipes. Game two in the best of three goes
Friday night in Little Current.
