Tribune Express - - SPORTS - GREGG CHAMBERLAIN gregg.chamberlain@eap.on.ca

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.
