Cornwall Colts knot series at two - now a best of three final
The Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) Finals are now a best of three affair, thanks to a 6-3 victory for the Cornwall Colts over the Pembroke Lumber Kings.

Cornwall - Apr. 11, 2011 - The Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) Finals are now a best of three affair, thanks to a 6-3 victory for the Cornwall Colts over the Pembroke Lumber Kings.

In a series that saw only eight goals scored in the first three games, game four was a bit of an anomaly with nine goals tallied. The game was tied 1-1 after the first period on goals by Cornwall’s Jacob Laliberte and Pembroke’s Brandon Gagne.

The two teams exchanged a pair of goals in the middle frame. Matthew Peca scored both second period Lumber Kings’ goals while Youssef Kabbaj and Tylor Spink replied for the hometown Colts.

All of the scoring in the third period belonged to the Colts, who scored three unanswered goals. Kevin Cole scored what turned out to be the game winner at 3:27 of the third. Mitch Zion scored a highlight reel, insurance goal at 13:19 and then he sealed the victory with his second of the game into an empty net in the final minute.

It was a relatively tame affair with only a total of ten minutes in penalties handed out by referees Scott Loney and Sean Reid. The officiating crew came under fire by Pembroke coach Sheldon Keefe who was upset at a missed call that he felt lead to the empty net goal.

The Lumber Kings outshot the Colts 38-37 in front of a large crowd of 2,094 fans. The three stars of game four were Zion (first), Tylor Spink (second) and Laliberte (third).

Game 5 will be back in Pembroke on Wednesday, while Game 6 will take place next Thursday at the Ed Lumley Arena. Should a seventh and deciding game be necessary, it will be played Saturday night in Pembroke. To win this series, the Colts will have to steal a game in Pembroke’s barn.
