Two Colts suspended for actions in wild Game 3
Colts defenceman Matthew Zanardo and forward Michael Borkowski have received suspensions for incidents in Game 3 of the Colts' first-round playoff series with Kanata.

Cornwall - Mar. 17, 2011 - The Cornwall Colts will be without two regulars for tonight's Game 5 matchup with the Kanata Stallions.

The Central Canada Hockey League has handed out suspensions to Colts defenceman Matthew Zanardo and forward Michael Borkowski as a result of incidents in Game 3 of their playoff series against the Kanata Stallions on Sunday night at the Cornwall Civic Complex.

Matthew Zanardo has been given a 7 game suspension for his match penalty for intent to injure. Zanardo went after Stallions forward Brandon Bussey in the third period of the contest, which the Colts won 7-1.

"While no injury occurred, the predatory nature and the video and referee report showed there was intent and the potential for serious injury existed," the league stated in a media advisory.

Meanwhile, Borkowski has been given a 2 game suspension for his major penalty for charging on Stallions goaltender Scott Shackell.

"While there was clearly, based on video and referees reports, no intent to injure, an injury did occur and the contact could have been avoided," the league stated.

Game 4 of the series was played in Kanata Tuesday without incident, and the Colts won the game 4-3 in overtime.

The series resumes tonight in Cornwall (7:30 p.m.) and the Colts will have a chance to advance to the next round as they currently lead the Stallions 3-1 in the series.
