PREVIOUS NATIONAL JUNIOR A CHAMPIONSHIP EXPERIENCE
1 appearance (2000)

For the first time since winning the CJHL championship and Fred Page Cup in 1999-00, the Cornwall Colts will play for Canadian Junior A hockey’s top prize. The 2008 RBC Cup hosts hope this trip to the National Junior A Championship will turn out better than their inaugural appearance – Cornwall finished 0-4 and missed the semi-finals in Fort McMurray, AB in 2000. The Colts were a picture of inconsistency throughout the 2007-08 season, putting together three four-game winning streaks and four three-game losing streaks to finish just above the .500 mark at 31-24-1-4, good for second in the Robinson Division, seven points back of the division champions from Cumberland. Cornwall captain Darcy Findlay was the offensive force, as the Bristol, QC native was the only Colts skater to find his way into the top 20 of CJHL scoring, with 82 points (44G 38A) in 60 games. Goaltender Justin Roethlingshoefer put together a solid season despite his team’s uneven play, finishing fourth in the CJHL with a 3.05 goals against average. Kicking off the playoffs against Smiths Falls, who finished 19 points ahead of the Colts during the regular season, Cornwall dropped a heartbreaking overtime decision in Game 1, a game they led midway through the third period, and fell 2-0 on home ice in Game 2. A win on the road in Game 3 gave the Colts life coming home, but the Bears wrapped up the series with a pair of wins, sending Cornwall to the showers six weeks before the opening game of the 2008 RBC Cup. The Colts became the fourth host team in as many years to fail to advance out of the first round of its league playoffs, but hope to follow the lead of the 2005 Weyburn Red Wings, who won the RBC Royal Bank Cup after a six-week lay-off, and the 2007 Prince George Spruce Kings, who advanced all the way to the national championship game after a first-round exit.
