‘Ottawa’ Carleton Place Canadians in Tough Spot at RBC Cup
The Carleton Place Canadians are in a must-win situation in their final round-robin game at the RBC Cup after losing 4-1 to the West Kelowna Warriors on Wednesday night.
After seeing similar results against West Kelowna as in their first two losses, Canadians coach Jason Clarke is not sure what else can be said on the bench, other than the fact leadership needs to step up.
“I’m a little disappointed, again, we got into some trouble like we did the first two days, we just refuse to shoot the puck and I’m not sure why,” Clarke said following the loss, noting multiple odd-man rushes with no shots to the net. “If you don’t want to shoot the puck, you’re not going to be able to score,” he added in reference to being outshot 117-70.
For the third straight game, West Kelowna scored first on Wednesday. Quin Foreman scored 1:45 after the initial puck drop to give the Warriors the lead, which they held the entire game.
