Laliberte held off scoresheet in Colts
Colts defenceman Youssef Kabbaj hammers a Cumberland Grads player into the boards during Central Hockey League action Thursday night at the Cornwall Civic Complex. The Colts won 5-2.

Cornwall - Mar. 3, 2011 - The Colts got the win, but Jacob Laliberte wasn't able to get the point.

Cornwall skated to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Cumberland Grads on Thursday night, however Laliberte didn't figure in any of the scoring.

As a result, the Colts captain still sits at 129 points on the season, just one point shy of the team scoring record set by Hugo Boisvert in 1995-96.

Laliberte now has one game left - a Saturday home contest versus Gloucester - to try and match or surpass Boisvert's 130-point record.

Despite the personal accolade at stake, Laliberte and the rest of the Colts seemed more interested in the team's success on Thursday night as they played some solid hockey at both ends of the rink.

Kyle Baun opened the scoring for the Colts just 24 seconds into the game, while Connor Primeau added another midway through the first period to give the home team a 2-0 lead heading into the second period.

Ben Hartley scored for the Grads midway through the second period to cut the lead to one, however Michael Rowbotham and Kevin Cole scored less than a minute apart to seal the deal for the Colts. Cole added a second goal late in the second period for the Colts, while Fabian Walsh scored the Grads' second goal.

With the win, the Colts now have a firm hold on second place overall in the league, and barring any major last minute changes, they'll face Kanata in the opening round of the playoffs.

GAME NOTES - Saturday's home game versus Gloucester is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. . . . . Pete Karvouniaris picked up the win in nets for the Colts, however he came out of the game for the third period (likely for some rest ahead of the playoffs) . . . . Colts veteran Leslie Lavictorie and Daniel Walsh dropped the gloves for a short bout with just over 10 minutes to play in the third period . . . . The attendance for the match was 1,228 . . . . The three stars of the game were Primeau (first), Baun (second) and Lavictoire.
