Day three of the 2019 Founders’ Cup is in the books and only two days of round robin play remain. Through three days of play, the Calgary Shamrocks and Six Nations Rebels are the only two teams that still remain unbeaten.
Calgary Shamrocks 12, North Shore Kodiaks 5
The Calgary Shamrocks used a second period surge to get past a hungry North Shore Kodiaks team searching for their first win of the tournament. Calgary got on the board first, followed by a two-goal run from North Shore to end the first period. In the second is where Calgary started to step on the gas as they score six unanswered goals to take a 7-2 lead heading into the third. Calgary extended their run to eight goals early in the third before North Shore finally ended their long scoring drought. While North Shore did wake up a bit in the third, Calgary was able to stay on top and walk away victorious.
Calgary was led by Cordell Hastings with four points (3G/1A) in the win. In addition, Mason McQuiggin tallied three points (2G/1A) and Dylan Ferrier score two goals.
Evan Reynolds led North Shore with three goals while Mikael Briere and Massimo Thauvette each score one goals, as well.
Coquitlam Adanacs 17, Saskatchewan SWAT 4
Coquitlam absolutely devoured Saskatchewan in a game that really was never that close to begin with. While Coquitlam only led 2-1 heading into the second, they started the second with two straight goals before Saskatchewan answered, cutting the lead to 4-2. Coquitlam then went on a nine-goal run that stretch from midway through the second through midway in the third. Saskatchewan finally answered, but it was much too late for any type of comeback as Coquitlam secured the blowout win.
Matthew Smigel led Coquitlam with seven points (4G/3A) while Daniel Chand tallied five points (2G/3A). In addition, Beau Chetner put up four points (3G/1A) in the win.
Saskatchewan was led with Nick McKee who tallied four points (1G/3A) in the loss. Jordan Boyenko also had two points (1G/1A) for Saskatchewan.
Six Nations Rebels 12, Seneca War Chiefs 7
The Six Nations Rebels used a big third period push to help them stay undefeated, and secure a win in a game that was very back-and-forth throughout. In the first, Six Nations got the scoring started early on before Seneca went on a two-goal run to take the lead. Six Nations answered with a two-goal run of their own, taking a 3-2 lead heading into the second. The back-and-forth nature of the game continued through the second as both side kept answering each other. With a narrow 6-5 lead heading into the third, Six Nations went on a five-goal run midway through the third to seal the deal, securing the win and move to 3-0 in the tournament.
Six Nations was led by Tonatiuh Salinas with six points (2G/4A). In addition, Maon Hill tallied four points (3G/1A) and Chayton King also put up four points (2G/2A) in the win.
Cody Bielec and Bryce Williams led the way for Seneca with three points (1G/2A) apiece. Brian Smith also scored two goals for Seneca in the loss.
Calgary Shamrocks 17, Manitoba Blizzard 6
In a battle of undefeated teams, the Calgary Shamrocks showed their prowess as they blew out the host team Manitoba Blizzard. Calgary got on the board early in the first and Manitoba didn’t answer until midway through the period. Calgary then went on a three-goal run to take a 4-1 lead heading into the second. Calgary really took over in the second period as they used a few big runs in between Manitoba goals to take control and start to put this one to bed early. With a 13-5 lead heading into the third, Calgary had pretty much secured the win, but added on a few more in the third. Manitoba scored once in the third period, but couldn’t really spark anything from it as Calgary walked away with another blowout victory.
Calgary was led by Cordell Hastings who tallied six points (2G/4A) in the win. Also, Colby Fraser and Dylan Ferrier put up five points (3G/2A) while Eric Lemire had five points (2G/3A). Bryce Timmer also had five points (1G/4A) for Calgary.
