Nepean 3, Carleton Place 2 (SO)
Liam Souliere made 53 saves during regulation and overtime and a further three in the shootout to lead the visiting Nepean Raiders to a shock 3-2 shootout victory over Carleton Place on Friday night.
The Raiders (10-13-0) led 2-1 after 40 minutes, and though a Travis Broughman third-period marker drew the Canadians (23-2-2, CJHL No. 2) level, Souliere and co. earned an eyebrow-raising win in C.P..
Corey Tam and Bryson Michel scored in regulation for Darcy Findlay’s Raiders; Geoff Kitt and the aforementioned Broughman netted for the Canadians.
The loss was Carleton Place’s first of the season at home, and snapped Jason Clarke’s team’s 14-game winning streak.
Pembroke 4, Navan 1
Multi-point nights from Matthew Barnaby and Connor Warnholtz led the way as the visiting Pembroke Lumber Kings dumped the Navan Grads 4-1.
Both Barnaby and Warnholtz netted a goal and assist in the win for Dale McTavish’s Lumber Kings (14-9-0), who outshot Navan (8-17-0) 44-33 en route to the road win.
Owen Arfstrom scored his first CCHL goal — a critical insurance marker — in the third period; Michael Locatelli had the lone goal for the Grads.
Kanata 4, Hawkesbury 2
The Kanata Lasers earned their second win in less than 24 hours on Friday afternoon in Vankleek Hill, where they downed the ‘hometown’ Hawkesbury Hawks by a 4-2 scoreline.
Jack Quinn and Liam Markhauser each had multi-point days for the Lasers (11-11-3), who returned to .500 for the first time since September with the win over the sliding Hawks (14-8-0).
Kanata netminder Logan Bateman stopped 36 of 38 shots faced to pick up his first CCHL victory.
Hawkesbury blueliner Nicolas Elia scored in his first action since Sep. 21.
Rockland 4, Kemptville 2
Affiliate Louis Chabot scored the game-winning goal as the injury-plagued Rockland Nationals doubled up the visiting Kemptville 73’s 4-2 at CIH Arena.
Trevor Coykendall, Benjamin Pruneau and Mathieu Blanchette also found the mark for the Nationals (12-13-2), who snapped an eight-game skid with the win over last-place Kemptville (5-20-1).
Newly-acquired Joel Frazee scored in the defeat for Jeff Jordan’s 73’s, who earned the dubious distinction of being the first team to the 20-loss mark this season.
Brockville 2, Cornwall 1 (OT)
Tyson Kirkby scored the overtime winner as the Brockville Braves edged the visiting Cornwall Colts 2-1.
Justin Evenson stopped 23 of 24 shots en route to the win for Brockville (15-11-1), but the real story was at the other end of the rink, where Colts (12-11-3) netminder Michael Carr stopped 45 of 47 shots to earn his team a road point.
Phil Gilmour and Konnor MacCormick had the regulation goals for the Braves and Colts respectively; Jesse Winchester’s Brockville team now sits alone in third place in the CCHL standings.
Ottawa 3, Smiths Falls 2
The Ottawa Jr. Senators overcame a two-goal deficit to earn a 3-2 road win over the Smiths Falls Bears on Friday night.
The newest Jr. Senator Ethan Manderville scored the game-winning goal at 19:24 of the second period, as Martin Dagenais’s Ottawa (19-4-3) club edged the hometown Bears (8-14-3).
Alex Di Carlo had a pair of goals in the defeat for Smiths Falls; Jr. Sens forward Chiwetin Blacksmith now has seven more assists (29) than any other player in the CCHL.
