WHEATFIELD -- The 8U Mite Major Clarence Stallions were victorious over the ORHL’s Burloak Bears at Hockey Outlet on Jan. 30, cruising to a 4-1 decision.

The game started ominously with Burloak jumping out to a quick 1-0 lead early in the first. Undaunted, the Stallions fought back minutes later on an unassisted goal by forward Fenton Gulisano. The remainder of the period saw scoring chances for both teams but Clarence goaltender Matteo Mancini held strong and the teams remained tied 1-1.

In the second period Clarence began to impose their will on their Canadian counterparts and cashed in on one of several scoring chances when Logan Shelton tallied, assisted by Tyler Grimm. Burloak’s goaltender thwarted several more scoring opportunities until late in the period. A point shot by defenseman Josh McLellan found its way through traffic and into the back of the net with two minutes remaining to give Clarence some breathing room. McLellan was assisted by Shelton.

Clarence continued to pour on the pressure in the third while playing great team defense. With the forwards backchecking, the defense locking down their zone and Mancini turning aside the Bear’s chances, Burloak was unable to climb back into the game. With 1:00 remaining, defenseman Zekiah Thomann was able to provide the icing on the cake. His snipe into the top corner of the net, assisted by McLellan and Alexei Spence, completed the scoring.

The Stallions have a couple of weeks of practice before they return to Cornerstone CFCU Arena on Feb. 20 to battle Ontario’s 99 Hockey.
