The Schomberg Cougars who had a good start and were in second place in the early going have now dropped to fourth place.

After 14 games the Hornets have come out on top 10 times. They took two losses and two overtime losses.

At the end of the first period the Hornets were leading 2 – 0 on goals from Didier Koenigs and Braydon Horgarth.
