Welland Jr. Canadiens vs. Fort Erie Meteors in Fort Erie

I haven’t been to any hockey games for quite a while so I stopped in to see Welland vs. Fort Erie Saturday February 6, 2016.  I can’t see the Port Colborne Pirates play any more since they moved to Pelham when the Niagara Whalers took over Vale centre.

So being that it’s been a long time and remembering how Fort Erie used to play it was pretty surprising and impressive to see that Fort Erie got the win!  They managed the win in regular time with a final score of 4 to 3.

There was even a fight that broke out and they ejected a player out of the game for “roughing after the whistle”.  Mind you there were some calls in the game that left you wondering what’s going on like too many men on the ice.  I guess you best get off the ice before you send a new player out there.

Anyways here are a few shots from the game:

 

 

 

Port Colborne Pirates vs. Welland Jr. Canadians Season Opener

The Port Colborne Pirates hosted the Welland Jr. Canadians for the season opening game at the West Side Arena.

The Pirates started out very strong against the Jr. Canadians. It was looking like a shut out with a Pirates win after the first period!  Port Colborne managed to bring the score up to 3-0 at the buzzer of the first period.  The second period Welland decided it was time to sneak in their first goal after The Pirates brought the score up to 4-0.  By the end of the third period it was 6-2 and The Pirates shorted everyone by one goal from getting some Don Cherry’s freebies.  After all was said and done it was still a great game with brand new jersey’s thanks to Don Cherry’s.

Port Colborne Pirates vs. Welland Jr. Canadians

In an amazing first period the Port Colborne Pirates opened the game with a very strong four point lead.

The second period held the mystery of how Welland was able to score two goals.  The second goal was scored when Port Colborne got a penalty for slashing when there wasn’t any slashing going on.  The second period left the game four to two for the Pirates.

The third period Welland seemed to continue their momentum.  Scoring and additional three goals.  Port Colborne finally stepped up and scored another goal to wrap up the third period as a tied game.

Overtime saw a four on four period.  After the five minute period the game remained tied at five.

A shootout ended with Welland winning the game.
