Showcase Recap | Nats rock the house

Rockland, Ont. — Oct. 9, 2017

Rockland 4, Kemptville 2 

The Rockland Nationals brought the house down at CIH Arena in the CCHL Thanksgiving Showcase nightcap, beating the Kemptville 73’s 4-2.

Aidan Graham’s one-timer from the point late in the third period completed the comeback for the Nats (9-4-2) and a forgettable collapse for the 73’s (3-11-1).

Sean Storr was strong with a 21-save performance in net for Rockland.

Hawkesbury 3, Kanata 2 (SO)

A late goal by captain David Jankowski forced overtime, and Matt Petizian stopped all three shooters as the Hawkesbury Hawks edged Kanata 3-2 in a shootout.

Petizian stopped 25 of 27 shots in the win for Hawkesbury (8-4-0), while Connor Noonan had a multi-point (1G/1A) game in the loss for Kanata (6-7-3).

Kieran Craig had the other goal for Rick Dorval’s Hawks; J.J. Boucher also scored for the Lasers.

Pembroke 5, Cornwall 1

A three-goal first period powered the Pembroke Lumber Kings past the Cornwall Colts 5-1.

Mason Emoff led the way with three points (1G/2A) in the win for the Lumber Kings (8-6-0), while Zach Cross, Connor Warnholtz and Matt Barnaby also recorded multi-point games.

Goaltender Jake Smith turned aside 35 of 36 shots he faced to earn his seventh win of the season; Michael Carr allowed five goals on 36 shots in taking the loss for Cornwall (6-8-1).

Carleton Place 3, Ottawa 1

Ben Tupker’s third-period goal stood as the winner as the Carleton Place Canadians earned a 3-1 win over the Ottawa Jr. Senators in a Bogart Cup rematch.

Uncommitted C.P. goaltender Jeremie Forget stopped 16 of 17 shots in the win for the first-place Canadians (13-2-1), while Francis Boisvert was a sharp 27-of-30 in the loss for Ottawa (11-3-1).

Geoff Kitt and Sam Knoblauch also scored for Carleton Place, while Silas Mattawashish netted the lone goal for the Jr. Senators.

Brockville 6, Navan 3

Jonny Hill’s three-point effort (2G/1A) — which included a late-game empty netter — led  the way for the Brockville Braves as they doubled up the Navan Grads 6-3 in the showcase finale.

Braves (9-7-0) goaltender Justin Evenson stopped all 26 shots he faced after relieving start Nick Wiencek, who was pulled after allowing three goals on 11 shots in his CCHL debut.

A three-goal first-period burst in the span of 6:18 from the Grads (4-10) gave them a 3-2 first-intermission lead, but Jesse Winchester’s Braves battled back to earn the win.

Nepean 4, Smiths Falls 2

The Nepean Raiders powerplay went 3-for-6 and Malcolm Arseneau scored twice en route to a 4-2 win over the Smiths Falls Bears.

Matthew Chan stopped 28 of 30 shots for Nepean (4-8-0), while Kyle Renaud allowed four goals on 36 shots in the loss for Smiths Falls (6-8-0).
