PLK gets shut out 4-0 by Cornwall

By Stephen Uhler, The Daily Observer

That was ugly.

 

Fresh off a 3-2 win over Nepean, the Pembroke Lumber Kings found themselves outdone Sunday night at home by the Cornwall Colts, losing 4-0.

In a frustrating evening at the Pembroke Memorial Centre, the Kings did everything they could on the ice but could not find the back of the net, despite outshooting the Colts 41 to 18. Their nemesis was Colt's netminder Liam Lascelle, who thwarted every attempt to score on Cornwall.

Pembroke's power play remained silent, despite being in play six times during the game. Cornwall's power play was almost as quiet, scoring only one in the five times it was on the rink.

Kings' starting goalie Alex Horawski was scored on three times before being swapped for Jake Smith in net some 38 minutes into the game. Smith himself was also scored upon, but the Colts no longer added to the total.

James Orr scored twice for Cornwall, while Cameron Hebert scored a power play goal at the beginning of the game, and picked up an assist at the end of the second period. JD Pogue went in alone to round out the score.

Assists went to David A Poirier, Roddie Sandilands, Tommy Tanner, and Justin McRae.

Cornwall's Lascelle (1) and Orr (2) received the game's first two stars, while Pembroke's Jacob McIntyre received the third star.

The Lumber Kings hit the road Saturday Nov. 25 to play the Ottawa Junior Senators in Ottawa, with the game starting 7:30 p.m. The PLK next home game is Sunday Nov. 26 when they will host Cornwall at the PMC. The game starts 7 p.m.
