Des Harfangs méconnaissables

The snowy owls of the secondary school of the Triplet to have posted a second failure in as many matches Friday at the class AAA Tournament bantam hockey in Granby, while they have suffered a stinging setback of 8-2 in front of the Lions North of Lake Saint-Louis.

“We had good training this week, but it doesn’t work during the game, explained coach Samuel Collard, who is not accustomed to see his players deliver to such counter-performance. It is mentally that it doesn’t work now… “

Remember that the snowy owls, who have three players of the region in their ranks, have won 17 of their first 22 games in the League of excellence of Quebec. But the team we saw on Friday was nothing like the one that wants to be one of the best in its category in Quebec.

“I look forward to that faced teams from outside [editor’s NOTE : on Saturday morning, the snowy owls have an appointment with the Flyers Dieppe, New Brunswick]. The Lions North, we lost against them in the final of the tournament of Saint-Jean. I think our young people need to up their game a notch… “

One thing is for certain, nothing worked in the face of Lions North. The snowy owls were never in the game and seemed to barely have the taste of playing hockey.

Charles Cléroux, of Cowansville, and Thomas Bégin recorded the goals of the snowy owls, which have come to register the score after the Lions North had taken the lead 5-0. Jake Rozzi and Jordan Dumas have both managed a hat trick in the favour of the victors in this encounter one way.

But even if the defeat had done wrong, coach Collard still believed to the chances of his team at Granby. “We are capable of winning our next four games. This I know “, he dropped before going to raise the morale of his players.

Among the spectators interested in the game, there was the former captain of the Canadian, Vincent Damphousse. His son, Denver, wears the colours of the Lions.
