Meteors are ‘frontrunners for the Sutherland Cup,’ says Beamish

With just nine games and less than a month to go in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) regular season, the Fort Erie Meteors sit in third place in the Golden Horseshoe Conference (GHC), narrowly trailing the St. Catharines Falcons and the Caledonia Corvairs.

Meteors forward Liam Beamish of Beamsville, Ontario, recently spoke with Rod Mawhood on Niagara Sports Report about playoff ambitions. “The only thing that we have our mindset on is the Sutherland Cup,” Beamish said. “We’re battling for first place in our division.”

This is Beamish’s rookie year with the Junior B Fort Erie Meteors. He was drafted in 2023 by the Sarnia Sting to play in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), but committed to Penn State University instead, a Division I school, where he plans to major in business and play NCAA hockey.

Beamish, who has averaged one goal and one assist per game this season, expressed his admiration for head coach and general manager, Nik Passero, as well as associate head coach, Anthony Passero. “The fact that they’ve been able to turn this organization around from, you know, being known as a bottom team in the GOJHL, to now one of the frontrunners for the Sutherland Cup? It’s pretty remarkable,” he told Mawhood. “All the credit to them for that.”

Caledonia, currently in second place in the GHC, will be visiting the Fort Erie Leisureplex tomorrow to take on the Meteors.
