Sharks fall in quarter-final at Georgian Invitational
The St. Lawrence College Sharks men's hockey advanced to the quarter-finals at the Georgian Invitational on Thursday, but their run was cut short after a 4-1 loss to Seneca.

Cornwall - Mar. 14, 2011 - The St. Lawrence College Sharks men’s hockey team’s offence put away 16 goals in the first two games to advance to the quarter-final at the Georgian Invitational in Barrie on Thursday, but the Sharks’ run was cut short after a 4-1 loss to Seneca.

Few could have predicted a 10-1 finale in the first game, but the Sharks came out to play and never let up against Georgian-Owen Sound. Marc Andre Fournier started the attack and Kyle Dingwall added two to put SLC Cornwall up 3-0 early in the first, before Brent Lariviere registered a pair to make it 5-0. Dominick Coyle buried one just before time expired in the second frame to help the Sharks take a 6-0 lead into the final period.

Fournier scored his second goal of the day for a 7-0 lead, before Lariviere earned the hat-trick building the 8-0 advantage, with 7:42 remaining in the game. Justin Villaneuve helped set up five of the first seven goals, before tallying a pair himself to give the Sharks a 10-0 lead. Georgian-Owen Sound spoiled the shutout getting a goal with 33 seconds left on the clock for a 10-1 scoreline.

The Sharks built another early lead against Fleming with Brock Bissonette tallying his first of the tournament, followed by Coyle and Sinfield to grab a 3-0 lead. Fleming got one back before the first period ended to make it 3-1. Coyle was the only one to find the back of the net in the second period, but two more goals by Lariviere and Sinfield in the third closed out the game with the Sharks ahead 6-1, qualifying for a spot in the quarter-final.

Seneca seized a 2-0 advantage in the opening frame, including a power play goal. The Sharks cut the deficit back to one after Justin McCourt scored to make it 2-1 at the 7:25 mark in the second period. SLC Cornwall slotted home the tying goal a few minutes later, but the referee called it off deeming a player from the Sharks was in the crease. The disallowed goal deflated what had been a heady Sharks offence and Seneca would advance with a 4-1 win.

The Sharks qualified for the 2011 Challenge Cup back in November when they won the Canadore Invitational. The Sharks are ranked fifth in the latest Ontario Colleges Committee on Campus Recreation (OCCCR) power ratings and will now head to Durham for the Challenge Cup on March 24 and 25.
