Newfoundland Senior Hockey has seen its share of controversy in the past....
Cataracts Take Game 4
The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts rolled into Corner Brook on Sunday and rolled over the Corner Brook Royals with a 5-2 victory over the hometown Corner Brook Royals, taking game 4 of the Central West Senior Hockey League Finals. With the victory, the Cataracts take a commanding 3-1 series lead.
The Cataracts set the tone early when playoff scoring leader Cam Fergus split the defense and scored the first goal at the 43 second mark of the first period. He added a second goal minutes later, putting the Cataracts up 2-0 before 4 minutes of game time had expired. The Royals never recovered from this early attack and looked ragged in their own end most of the game. The Royals did get one back in the first period when captain Michael Hynes scored on the power play to make it 2-1 after the first period.
Brandon Bussey of the Cataracts also had 2-goals for the Cataracts, with Steve Yetman scoring a single marker for the winners. Ryan Watson scored a shorthanded marker for the Royals.
The game was dominated by the Cataracts from start to finish. They forced the play along the boards, won the battles in deep, dominated in the face off circle and played a fast skating game that saw the team change from defense to offense in a blink.
Game 5 is scheduled back in Grand Falls-Windsor on Friday night as the Cataracts have an opportunity to clinch the league championship and head to the Herder Memorial Championship.
