At first sight, the Everest of the Côte-du-Sud was not a team expansion on Saturday. The club of Montmagny was dearly sold his skin to his supporters, but he finally tilted by the mark of 6-5 in the face of Inouk.
“They have given us a hard time throughout the game. It would be good for a full 60 minutes to win, ” confirmed the boss’s hockey Inouk, Patrice Bosch.
The two teams continued to exchange the lead in this meeting, so well that the score was 5-5 midway in the third period. Registered with the complicity of Ludovick Caron, the 5th goal of the season from defender Vincent Lampron has finally made the difference with less than three minutes to drain the clock.
“The Everest has nothing stolen. The game would have been able to go to one side or the other. […] This kind of opposition will help our preparations for the series, ” noted Bosch.
Louis-Philippe Denis and William Leblanc have again led the attack granbyenne with crops a goal and two assists. Nathan Martel has imitated Caron amassing one goal and one assist.
Acquired by Everest in mid-December, the veteran Zachary Maheu has completed a hat-trick, in addition to add a password.
Marc-Antoine Dufour has made 32 stops in front of the cage of Inouk, against 30 for his vis-à-vis Félix-Antoine Leblond.
Rather amazing in his first season in the junior hockey League AAA du Québec (LHJAAAQ), the Everest has so practically on an equal footing with Granby on Saturday.
Sorrow and misery, the Inouk have managed to bounce back after the defeat (6-3) suffered against Chambly Friday.
“This is the kind of game where you don’t even want to remove your guard to give a lesson to your guys. We got what we deserved. The work was not there and we played individually. “
In addition, three new names were recently added to the list of absentees in Inouk. Simon Lavoie was wounded in the face of the Strong, while Tristan Belliveau and Jordan Roy missed the duel on Saturday for personal reasons.
“We missed a lot of soldiers, but at the same time, it is like that since a while. […] We look forward that our world will return, but it gives the ice time and opportunities to other players, ” said Bosch.
Although the trade deadline is set to Sunday League, the Quebec major junior hockey, Bosch is waiting for the outcome of the balloting before making its next decisions. The DG of Inouk has spent part of the day on the phone, but it had nothing to announce in the early evening.
Recall that the teams of the LHJAAAQ have until Thursday to find a compromise.
The Inouk will play their next two home games. The Predators of Saint-Gabriel-de-Brandon will bring to the centre sportif Léonard-Grondin Friday night, and then it will be the turn of the dreaded Titan de Princeville Sunday afternoon.
