Vos, MacLean, Coughlin lead Charlottetown’s offence

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The Charlottetown Bulk Carriers Knights spotted the Kensington Monaghan Farms Wild a 3-1 lead after one period before roaring back with seven unanswered goals over the final 40 minutes.

The Knights, who took a 4-3 advantage into the second intermission after captain Max Chisholm completed a tic-tac-toe play for a power-play goal with 2:11 to play in the middle stanza, would go on to win the contest 8-3.

The game counted in the New Brunswick/P.E.I. Major Under-18 Hockey League standings, and was the first game of the Island Covid Cup.

The four-team event features the Knights, Wild and the Mount Academy’s under-18 and under-17 teams.

The four teams came together to come up with a schedule that allows them to continue playing games in the province while travel restrictions are in place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Wild and Knights play four New Brunswick teams regularly, and the Mount Academy teams travel outside the Maritimes.

The action continues with two games on Saturday. The Mount Academy under-18 team travels to Credit Union Centre in Kensington to take on the Wild at 6 p.m., and the Knights and Mount Academy under-17 squad meet at MacLauchlan Arena in Charlottetown at 7:45 p.m.

Four assists

Isaac Vos was the top point-getter for Knights with four assists. Cam MacLean had two goals and an assist while Luke Coughlin chipped in with three helpers.

Colby Huggan (1-1), Caleb MacDonald (1-1), Max Chisholm (1-1), Kal White, Harry Clements and Connor Keough also dented the twine for the Knights, who improved their league-leading record to 4-0-0.

Single helpers were credited to Cole McKeigan, Will Morrison, Jonah Jelly and winning goaltender Aiden Williams, who finished with 20 saves.

Bates Ling (1-1), Harrison James and Kieran Rennie countered for the Wild (1-3-1). Carson MacKay (2), Beau Dawson, Sam Bowness and Alex Graham set up the goals.

Josh Smith stopped 34 shots in the loss.

The Knights received eight of the game’s 14 minor penalties. Each team picked up one 10-minute misconduct.
