Hundreds pay tribute to fallen troops in Cornwall

Hundreds of people gathered to remem- ber the fallen during a Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cornwall cenotaph on Sunday morning. Among those laying wreaths at the Sec- ond Street West war memorial were Corn- wall Mayor Bob Kilger, Stormont-Dundas- South Glengarry MP Guy Lauzon and Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell. Although it had rained earlier in the morning, the skys cleared and the sun broke through and the crowd gathered to pay homage to those who have fallen to protect their freedom. Local poppy fund campaign chair Ron Racine, speaking before the laying of the wreaths, praised area residents for their support of veterans. “To all of you who are here today, I thank you.” Area residents also took part in a ceremo- ny near Morrisburg on Sunday to mark the 199th anniversary of a key military victory in Canadian history -- the Battle of Crysler’s Farm. Described by former MPP and local his- torian as “The Other November 11th”, the ceremony was held at the Crysler Battlefied Park, adjacent to Upper Canada Village.

Penalty trouble came back to haunt the Hawks as the Colts scored all their goals on the powerplay in what was a rough and tumble affair at the Ed Lumley Arena. The Hawks were penalized for 31 minutes on 10 infractions, more than double the Colts’ 14 minutes on seven infractions. Trent Durocher got the Colts on the score- board late in the second during a two-man advantage to narrow Hawkesbury’s lead to 2-1. Michael Pontarelli tied the game 11 min- utes in the third and Sean King put the Colts ahead for good five minutes later. Carl Belazario and Michael Pontarelli both had two-point nights for the Colts. James Edwardson earned the win with 23 saves on 25 shots. Carmine Guerriero made 45 saves in a losing effort for the Hawkes- bury Hawks. The Colts hit the ice at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs- day at the Ed Lumley Arena to face off against the Bears.

It was bad news for the Cornwall Colts in Smiths Falls Friday night. The Colts lost to the tune of 5-0 to the powerhouse Bears. But the Colts will have a chance to avenge the drubbing when they host the league leaders Thursday night at the Ed Lumley Arena. Colts fell apart in the thirdperiod, allowing five unanswered goals despite outshooting the Bears 13 to 11 in the final frame. Patrick Sexton of the Bears broke the scoreless draw 6:02 into the third period and Conner McLaren put the home team up 2-0 10:51 into the final frame with a power- play marker. Jeffrey Carroll added one at the 13:55 mark and Daniele Disipio scored two in less than a minute to complete the rout. Patrick Martin earned the win for the Bears with 28 saves for the shutout.
