A late goal from Laurent Minville has enabled the Inouk of extracting a victory of 3-1, Sunday on the side of Montréal-est. The training granbyenne is now unbeaten in its last five games.
The Inouk have, however, had to fight hard to win the two points. A tie of 1-1 persisted even after 57 minutes of play. But as the saying goes, the cream eventually rise to the surface.
While Xavier Jean was hunted for high-sticking, defender Simon Lavoie was first done good work along the ramp. Lavoie was then joined Jesse Belzil, who has redirected the drive to Minville. Forgotten in the enclave, the attacker bromont took the opportunity to put his 15th goal of the season.
“The last few games, what I like very much, it is a little bit of all of the world contributes to the attack. It makes all the difference, ” said the head coach of Inouk, Patrice Bosch.
“Laurent is also on a good sequence. He had a good season. “
Félip Bourdeau and Louis-Philippe Denis also scored for Granby. Nicolas Roy has collected two assists.
The replica of the Rangers came to Tristan Mathieu-Siciliano.
Note that the two stars of the match were given to the guardians, William Ascot (34 saves for Montreal) and Marc-Antoine Dufour (26 stops).
“We have not given much defensively, but Dufour has still had to make some key saves. Because, at 1-1, it would have also been able to turn to the other side, as pointed out by Bosch.
A 100th of a point for Leblanc
In this day of the Super Bowl, William Leblanc also had an appointment with history. Neutralised for a third consecutive game, the talented attacker, however, remains to a length of the record to Érik Longtin for the greatest number of goals in a season in Inouk.
Leblanc was on the ice when the goalkeeper was withdrawn at the end of the game, but rather, it is Denis who has scored the insurance goal. “Will The Trill” has nevertheless reached the plateau of 100 points (54 goals and 46 assists) on this sequence.
“To amass 100 points in a season, this is not nothing. And it is very well deserved. […] But honestly, we can’t wait that Will make his 55th goal and move on to something else… ” added the coach granbyen.
Under their most recent victory, the Inouk have soared to the second rank of the classification of the junior hockey League AAA du Québec, ahead of Longueuil and the south-east.
They will however face two major challenges over the next few days.
The Cobras de Terrebonne, which still dominate the LHJAAAQ, lead at the centre sportif Léonard-Grondin on Thursday evening. The matches involving these two powers are rarely absent of interest.
The Panthers of St-Jerome will also make a trip to Granby on Saturday afternoon.
