Carter Holmes scored 37 seconds into the game for the Tier 2 Canadians and Carleton Place out shot the visiting Winchester Hawks 19-5 in the first period. Reece Bolton, Aiden Parnell, and Ryland Mosley (2) added goals for CPC as they improved to 6-0 at home this season with a 5-2 win.
Cameron Patton had 4 assists in the Thanksgiving Monday afternoon game.
The final shot totals were 44-23 for the Canadians. Picking up the win in net was Jacob Lavergne. Lavergne improves to 8-0 on the season. His goals against average is 2.32 and his save percentage is .908.
Reece Bolton had 3 points on Monday to re-take the league lead in points. He now has 24 on the season and sits 3 goals up on Embrun’s Andrew Burke for the league lead in goals with 14.
“I thought for the second game of a back-to-back we played pretty well, the effort was there. We were a little sloppy but it is good to get the victory,” said Bolton.
Bolton was awarded player of the Month for September and was also listed as the league’s top prospect in the Prospect Report.
“I want to keep moving forward, keep getting better. My line mates and I work well off each other and we need to keep being productive for the team.”
The Canadians will welcome the Embrun Panthers (7-5-1) on Saturday night. That game will feature the top 5 scorers in the league (Bolton, Burke, Haymes, Mosley, Brosseau).
“They’re top line does most of their scoring and they have pretty good goaltending,” said Head Coach John Ollson. “Hopefully we show up on Saturday and I can promise you that practice will not be fun this week.”
The Canadians are now 10-4, five points ahead of Wesport (7-2-1) and Athens (7-4-1) for 1st place in the Richardson Division. Embrun defeated CPC 4-1 on September 17.
