The Maroons have not been able to snatch a victory in the air Conditioning Cloutier of Cap-de-la-Madeleine last weekend, but they have nevertheless proven that they are able to compete with the team of the Mauricie region. An element that reassures the coach Miguel Fortin and defender Jonathan Delorme.
“People have seen that it has what it takes to play with the Cap-de-la-Madeleine, explains Fortin. With a little luck, this series could be equal to 1-1. The idea is to continue to work hard and to play with the same intensity, but it must also be more opportunistic. Me, I still believe in our chances of victory. “
In the locker room also, according to Delorme, the players still believe.
“I also think that, with a bit of luck, the series might be equal,” he said. Don’t worry, no one is to land in the room and we are going to Cape town with the intention of reducing the gap to 2-1. Our victory against Donnacona has given to us in confidence and our performance last weekend, have added even a little more. “
The third game of this series, four of seven will be played Friday night in Cap-de-la-Madeleine, while the fourth, will take place Saturday evening at the arena Jacques-Chagnon.
“It is a four-of-seven, not a three-of-five, takes up a Fortin. I know that many think that one cannot win four of the next five games, but it’s not like it needs to see things. It is necessary to go there one part at a time. And the most important match is the next. “
Gervais in front of the net
The Maroons will have substantially the same alignment to the Cap-de-la-Madeleine on Friday to Waterloo last Saturday. It is as well as Charles Power, which is best with a single shoulder health than the majority with both, will be in alignment, but not Jason Crack. However, Vincent Gervais will be in front of the net in the place of Francois Lacerte.
“It was a good game plan and it does not derogate from, takes up Jonathan Delorme. The guys are positive and nobody, I repeat, has not thrown the towel. One is in the rear, but I already lived through worse. Yes, everything is still possible. “
Delorme was the captain of Inouk, in 2013-2014, when the Granbyens have overcome a deficit of 3-1 to face the Cougars of Champlain College, and they have won the Cup Napa.
