Collingwood Colts won two games on home ice last weekend facing teams from Buffalo and Milton.

During each game, one Colts skater managed to net their first OJHL goal to help the team to victory.

Here are the game recaps provided by the Collingwood Colts.

The Mike Jackson GM Collingwood Colts hosted the Buffalo Jr Sabres on Friday night (Jan. 24) at the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena. The Colts wasted no time getting out in front of the Sabres as recently-acquired forward Landis Antonic scored his first goal as a member of the Colts. Collingwood added to their lead in the second period as Vladislav Dvurechenskii and Collingwood native Eric Lalonde both scored in the second period. This was also Eric Lalonde’s (71) first goal in the OJHL.

In the third period, Collingwood continued to pad the lead as Christian Taylor, Adrian Nabuurs and Cameron Vassos all tallied goals to propel the Colts to a 6-2 victory over Buffalo.

Colts Goaltender Andrew Rose stopped 25 of 27 shots to earn the victory.
