SHOWCASE WIN FOR COUGARS
The Vankleek Hill Cougars are off to a winning start for the new season in the National Capital Junior Hockey League after shredding the Morrisburg Lions 3-0 in the Showcase series over the September 22 weekend.
The Showcase opener event took place Saturday at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau with all 10 teams in the NCJHL matched up for a game each during the day. Cougars General Manager Marc Bernique said the games went on as scheduled in spite of the havoc that a tornado the night before wreaked on the Gatineau area.
“There was no change in plan,” Bernique said. “Getting there (to Gatineau) was something else, though, depending on where you were coming from.”
Scoring for the Cougars were Ryan Allen, Nicolas Castonguay, and Jonathan Leblanc. Ryan also made a goal assist during the game. Also assisting on the scoring were Kyle Giroux, Trystan Lavoie, and Xavier Lemoine. Sébastien Moreau guarded the Cougars net.
