The Clarenville Ford Caribous handed the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts their first regulation loss of the season Sunday afternoon, winning 6-3.

The ‘Bous evened up the weekend home-and-home series at the Eastlink Events Centre (EEC), after losing 4-1 to the Cats Saturday night at the Joe Byrne Memorial Stadium.

Chad Earle scored two goals for the home team. Kenny Mahoney, Keith Delaney, Stuart MacRae and Kevin Reid each had one.

Danny Wicks, Brandon Bussey and Andre Gill scored the Cats’ three goals.

Tyler Whiffen got the start for the ‘Bous and made 27 saves in the win.

The former Cataract replaced Jason Churchill between the pipes, who had skate trouble before the game began.

Whiffen’s counterpart, Bryan Gillis of the Cats, stopped 26 shots.

The Cataracts remain well out in front in the league standings, while the Caribous are in second place and the Kelly Ford Gander Flyers remain in third.

Grand Falls-Windsor are off this weekend, while the ‘Bous host the Flyers for two games at the EEC — the last two home games for Clarenville until the holiday break.
