Cornwall - Feb. 28, 2011 - The St. Lawrence College Cornwall men's hockey team came just shy of winning the bronze medal at the Fleming Invitational on Friday in Lindsay, Ont.

The Sharks finished 2-2 overall and move to 12-4 overall this season.

"I like where we are as a team," said co-head coach Sean Boulerice. "With so many experienced players in our lineup, there is always the chance of a personal agenda, but that is not the case with this team. We are all on the same page and working toward a common goal which is encouraging."

SLC Cornwall started the day with Trent, who topped the Sharks 4-2. Troy Sinfield netted a pair of goals against the Excaliburs, with Marc-Andre Fournier and Mat Milberry getting credit for the assists.

With Pat Piquette between the pipes, the Sharks blanked Centennial 4-0, to earn Piquette's first shutout of the year. Sinfield scored his third goal of the day, after slotting away a pass from Kyle Dingwall and Milberry. Justin Villaneuve got on the scoresheet after teaming up with Fournier and Sinfield. Fournier batted home the final two goals for the Sharks to take the 4-0 victory, securing second place in Division D.

Facing Georgian Orillia, who finished second in Division C, the Sharks offense continued to bury the puck into the net to claim a 5-3 win over the Grizzlies. Fournier led the way tallying a hatrick, while teammates Dingwall and Milberry added a goal each for the win.

The victory sent the Sharks into the bronze medal game with Durham. The Sharks' top scorers Fournier and Sinfield netted a goal each, but Durham took home the bronze earning a 3-2 edge after time expired.

The Sharks were five players short from their regular lineup entering the day and lost two more to injury throughout the competition, but had tremendous performances from Sinfield and Fournier offensively and were able to keep the defense tight to come away with a 2-2 record.

The Sharks will be in action next at the Georgian Invitational in Barrie on March 10.
