A goal by Samuel Guilbault, a 2:41 minute of the extension period, has allowed the French College of Longueuil to win 4-3 against the Inouk ahead a little more than 500 spectators, Friday night, at the centre sportif Léonard-Grondin.
Guilbault has done everything in the face of Inouk, who recorded a hat trick and was even allowed to add a password. He scored after what seemed to be a bad change at the bench of Granbyens.
For Inouk (25-10-1), it is a first defeat in the tiebreaker this season.
“There has been a very slow, and it’s clear what has cost us the game,” explained Patrice Bosch. We looked at Longueuil play in the first [editor’s NOTE : which ended 3-1 in favor of the visitors] and when we started to skate then, it became a completely different part. But the game is really played at first in my opinion. “
At the end of the first, the Inouk have squandered a numerical advantage of two men for nearly two minutes. It has also hurt.
“Despite everything, we nearly win, it was big, took over Bosch. It is played in the details. “
Tristan Belliveau has been the best of Inouk with two goals. Ludovic Caron has completed.
William Leblanc has been cleared of the score sheet.
The Inouk have dominated 43-34 in shots. Philippe Savard-Mass has been excellent, while Marc-Antoine Dufour, however, not be nasty, would like to maybe review a goal.
Clearly, the defeat has not passed in the locker room Inouk. We heard bad words coming from the room after the match…
We still had another good game of hockey. It skated, it was intense, it was still worthy of the series.
The Inouk were still deprived of elements of value : Félip Bourdeau, Nicolas Roy and Hubert Cyrenne-Blanchard. Jordan Roy is injured, but it is especially affected by the death of his mother, which occurred in the last few days.
A moment of silence was observed before the match.
The Inouk continue Sunday their series of matches against some of the best teams in the League hockey junior AAA then they will be in Terrebonne. The Cobras, despite their defeat on Friday in the face of the Titan de Princeville, dominate the standings.
