In announcing the October Performers of the Month in the CCHL2 (Westport player Blake Kettyle, Ottawa West goaltender Miguel Daoust, and Ottawa rookie Noel de Kemp), the league also delivered honourable mentions to a pair of Alexandria Glens.
Mikael Gibault was recognized in the player category, while Mathieu Parent was identified amongst the rookies.
Michal Carr made 20 saves to backstop the Cornwall Colts to a 2-1 victory over the Nepean Raiders, at the Ed Lumley Arena, on Thursday night.
The Colts outshot the Raiders 36-21 to improve to 8-10-3-0, for 19 points, and into a tie for seventh overall in the CCHL standings.
Ethan Mulhearn and Alex Gagnon provided the offence for the Colts. Cedric Matte, acquired last week in the David Poirier trade with Carleton Place, was named the Hardest Working Colts Player of the Game.
Three stars were first Alex Gagnon (COR), second Tristan Poissant (COR), and third William Venne (NEP).
Next game for Cornwann's junior 'A' hockey team is booked for tonight, Nov. 2, in Brockville. Start time is 7:30 p.m.. at the Brockville Memorial Centre.
