The Colts opened the scoring in the first on JD Pogue’s 21st tally of the season. Ottawa sealed the victory with an empty-net goal late in the third frame.
The Jr Sens outshot the Colts 30-20, with Liam Lascelle getting tagged with the loss. Hardest Working Colts Player of the game was Konnor MacCormick. Three Stars were first Elie Boulerice (OTT), second Finn Evans (OTT), and third JD Pogue (COR).
Cornwall's record falls to 28-22-4-2 (62 points) for sixth place in league standings.
