CJHL Hockey
Cumberland Grads season off to so-so start

The Cumberland Grads season got off to a so-so start last week as the team posted just one win against a pair of losses.

After losing their season opener 5-3 to the Brockville Braves on the opening day of the CJHL’s showcase weekend in Carleton Place on Sept. 12, they downed Kemptville 6-2 the next day on a pair of goals by Mitch Gallant and single from Michael Nooyen, Greg Sartoretto, Mathieu Ouellette and Michael Borokowski. Adam Mohr picked up the win in net for the Grads.

The Grads lost their second game of the season last Wednesday in a close match-up against the Ottawa Jr. Senators in which three of five of the goals that were scored came on the powerplay.

The game was tied 1-1 after the first and 2-2 after the second with the Grads scoring the equalizer in both periods. Unfortunately they didn’t have an answer for the Jr. Sens’ third goal which came midway through the final period.

In the three games they’ve played so far veteran D-man Daniel Sauve has led the way offensively with a goal and four assists. The goal scoring has so far been spread out with no fewer than 10 players getting on the score sheet during the first three games.

One area they will definitely need to work on as the early part of the season unfolds is their special teams play. Although they’ve managed to score five power play goals in their first three games, they had 25 power play opportunities which equates to a 20 per cent efficiency rating.

Conversely, the opposing teams’ power plays are scoring at a 33 per cent clip with five goals in 15 attempts.

In net, veteran goalie Adam Laderoute has yet to pick up his first win and his GAA is over 4.00. Adam Mohr played well-enough against Kemtpville, but the 76s aren’t exactly known for their scoring, in fact they’re tied for last in the league with just seven goals.

The Grads will try to even their record this Sunday when they host the Hawkesbury Hawks at the Navan Memorial Arena. Game time is 3 p.m.
