Tanner Spink chipped in with 2 assists.
The Colts outshot the Lumber Kings 41-26 with Liam Lascelle picking up the victory in goal. The three stars were Sebastian Dirven (COR), Tanner Spink (COR), and Salim Mahi-Beaudry (PEM).
The Colts only trail first place Carleton Place by 5 points heading into weekend action. Cornwall travels to Smiths Falls to take on the Bears tonight. Game time is 7:30pm. The team will return home next Thursday (November 25) to host the CCHL-leading Carleton Place Canadians. Game time is 7:30pm at the Ed Lumley Arena (Cornwall Civic Complex).
Members of the Colts will be involved in upcoming community events in Cornwall. The boys will be participants in the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday.
