Brennan Markell’s third-period, short-handed goal was all the offence the Colts could muster in a 2-1 loss to Nepean Thursday night at the Ed Lumley Arena, in Cornwall.
The Raiders outshot the Colts 32-28, with Michael Carr making 30 saves in the loss. Cornwall's record falls to 26-21-4-2 (58 points) for sixth place in the CCHL standings.
The Hardest Working Colts Player of the game was Konnor MacCormick. Three Stars were first Alexander Bourhas (NEP), second Joey Laird (NEP), and third Brennan Markell (COR).
The Colts have a week off before hosting the Brockville Braves next Thursday, at 7:30 p.m.

Curling clubs in Alexandria and Maxville will be abuzz this weekend with bonspiel action.
On Saturday, Feb. 10, the Alexandria Curling Club will host its inaugural Beginners' Bonspiel, with matches scheduled to run throughout the day, culminating with evening entertainment.
On Sunday, the Glengarry Curling Club in Maxville will entertain curlers from the RCMP club in the Quebec Challenge Cup. The play is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.
On Friday, Feb. 9, the Alexandria Glens will hold a special minor hockey evening as part of their junior 'B' hockey game that night with the Ottawa West Golden Knights.
As we reported in The Glengarry News last week (Jan. 31 edition), the Alexandria peewee 'C' Glens will take on EPR Fusion from Hawkesbury, prior to the CCHL2 contest, starting at approximately 6:30 p.m. The junior 'B' game will follow at the Glens' traditional 8 p.m. start time.
All minor hockey players, wearing their jerseys and accompanied by a paying adult, will be admitted to the evening at no charge.
The Alexandria Glens continued their late-season swoon on Tuesday night, falling behind the Perth Blue Wings 3-0, before rallying to tie, only to eventually fall 4-3 in overtime.
Over their last eight CCHL2 games, the Glens have won just twice, though the boys have also picked up single points in three other games, as a result of overtime or shootout losses.
Perplexingly, two of the losses have come against the Char-Lan Rebels, one of the weakest teams statistically in the league, while one of Alexandria wins came against the top-ranked Casselman Vikings.
