League-leading Gander rebounds for Sunday win after Saturday loss in Clarenville

The Clarenville Caribous couldn’t capitalize on an opportunity to take over first place in the Central West Senior Hockey League as they fell 6-3 to the Gander Flyers Sunday afternoon at the Eastlink Events Centre in Clarenville.

The Caribous had moved to within a point of first-place Gander with their own 6-3 victory over the visiting Flyers Saturday night in the league’s first game after the Christmas break, but Clarenville couldn’t produce a similar result in the follow-up match.

The Caribous will have a couple of weeks to think about the lost chance. They are off next weekend while the Flyers and Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts host the East Coast Senior Hockey League’s Northeast Eagles and St. John’s Caps in interlocking games.
