CORNWALL Ontario – The River Kings, sporting new flashy warmup jerseys, looked pretty impressive with a 6-0 victory over Sorel-Tracy in LNAH pre-season action at the Civic Complex on Saturday night.
The veteran line of Julien Corriveau, J.P. Caron and Antony Courcelles sparked Cornwall with a seven-point performance against the Eperviers, which eliminated Cornwall last spring.
Corriveau got things started early, converting 23 seconds into the contest on a feed from Courcelles, who then beat Adam Russo with a heavy wrist shot at 2:11 of the first.
Marc-Andre Levasseur, with a shorthanded marker, gave the River Kings a 3-0 lead at 9:10 of the opening frame. The goal chased Russo, in favour of former Cornwall goaltender Paul Bourbeau Jr.
Robbie Thomson had his first tilt for the River Kings, dropping the mitts with David Lacroix mid-way through the first. The two squared off again late in the second period after the River Kings took a 6-0 lead.
COMING UP NEXT: Next weekend, the River Kings have a home-and-home with the Laval Predateurs. Cornwall visits Laval on Friday night and the two teams meet again on Saturday, Sept. 19 at the Civic Complex. Puck drop is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are only $5 for all ages (general admission).
