Thursday September 11(E1 Finals)
(3)Werewolves vs Blue Devils(7) Game 1
A bad start to the game didn’t affect the Blue Devils as they responded with five straight goals to rout the Werewolves. The Blue Devils made it look like it was a shooting gallery at certain points of the game getting big shots from players such as S.Robineault who scored twice to beat P.Turturici. The Werewolves did capture some hope when M.Acciaioli narrowed the gap by two on the power play in the third period but that was short lived as J-S Leroux immediately responded with a back breaking tally.
(3)Blue Devils vs Werewolves(8) Game 2
The Werewolves flipped the tables for game two to even up the series. This time they made sure to protect and build on their lead sending a strong message that they were the hungrier of the two sides. Apart from their solid five on five play, the Werewolves dominated the special teams department getting a short handed goal from M.Rossi and power play tallies from both A.Zarzour and S.Minkiewicz. J.Guerriero helped set the tone early notching three first period points that included two goals.
(0)Werewolves vs Blue Devils(2) Game 3
With time winding down the Blue Devils were able to get on the board late to capture their fourth championship. It wasn’t a shock that it was S.Robineault who spoiled the Werewolves night as the sneaky forward used his wrist shot to get the better of his rival P.Turturici. That tally left just over a minute for a response for the Werewolvers who weren’t able to get at least one by the solid net minding of M.Dagenais. In a series that could have gone either way, lots of credit goes out to both sides especially to Pierre Coulombe, Eric Girouard and the rest of the Blue Devils for getting it done. On Behalf of Hockeyballe.com we would like to congratulate the Blue Devils for capturing the E1 Thursday night championship.

The Boston Pizza player of the series goes to Simon Robineault. The crafty forward scored the most important goal of the season making the entire difference in the third and deciding game.

...

Thursday September 11(E2 Finals)
(3)Carnage vs Renceur(6) Game 2
Already up 1-0 in the series, Les Renceur wanted to make sure to get things done right away. Anytime you have a valid sniper in the line up good things tend to often happen. Tonight, B.Deslauriers lived up to his capabilities by riffling an impressive total of four goals while being able to set up M-A Lefebvre and N.Gilbert late in the game. Carnage did put up a good fight and had this game tied at three goals a piece after two periods before dropping the final frame. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Gabriel Fournier, Nicolas Gilbert and the rest of Renceur for capturing their first ever championship.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Brian Deslauriers of Renceur. The number 11 used his power to tally four times in a six point performance over Carnage.

...

Wednesday September 10(Semi finals)
(5)Generals vs Black Knights(2) Game 1
After dropping the first two goals of the game, the Generals kicked it into gear responding with the next five tallies to take the series opener. The comeback began when Julien Brunet got to J.Beaudry by the four minute mark of the second period which eventually led to four other Generals finding the back of the net. Jeremie Paradis snapped an early third period 2-2 tie which stood as the game winner. O.Gaucher recovered quickly after a slow start to the game finishing strong between the pipes top earn a well deserved victory.

Due to lack of players, Red Lite weren’t able to floor a team in their series versus the Royal Flush which now forces the ten time National champions to respond with two straight games in hopes of advancing to the finals.

The Boston Pizza of the night goes to Olivier Gaucher of the Generals. The net minder was flawless in nets as of the four minute mark of the second period where his club began their comeback.

...

Wednesday September 10(Semi finals)
(4)Dream Team vs Red Nose(5) Game 1
One things for sure is that this match lacked anything but intensity. Y.St-Georges did everything possible for the Dream Team by netting a hat trick, setting up a teammate and by drawing his opponents into plenty of penalty trouble. As much as all that worked, Red Nose was forced to break out by the third period where they won the frame 2-0 to grab a 1-0 series lead. M.Latreille was a force striking twice while setting up A.Zarzour for the game tying goal.
(5)Red Nose vs Dream Team(0) Game 2
Taking their opponents extremely seriously the Red Nose made it a point to play a full out 45 minute game. It wasn’t up until the later stages of the second period when this match witnessed its first goal of the game. Once again M.Latreille came up big netting the opening goal which led to G.Delia’s tricky slap shot moments later for a 2-0 second period lead. Leaving only one period for a comeback, the Dream Team were forced to take chances which enabled the Red Nose to capitalise on three occasions securing the win. After receiving nearly 30 shots, J-P Gagnon earned the shutout versus the division leaders.
(1)Horsemen vs TANK(7) Game 1
Despite the lob sided result, Tank did most of their scoring by the final frame. It’s always nice to see the captain take charge and that’s exactly what N.Gilbert did by converting in a short handed situation for a 2-1 lead before setting up the next three goals for his club. M.Quesnel-Vinet and J.Parisella each had a pair of goals and A.Mancini played a solid game between the pipes allowing only a first period tally.
(2)TANK vs Horsemen(7) Game 2
The Horsemen found a way to return the favour in game two with a 7-2 rout. Desperation kicked in early for the Horsemen leading to a snow balled effect by the second period where they riffled four goals to take charge of the match. Apart from V.Pandza two goals, the Horsemen saw many different players get on the score sheet. L.Loizou got credited the winner and M.Vinciguerre had a bounce back performance allowing only two goals.
(0)Horsemen vs TANK(4) Game 3
It came down to a 15 minute do or die game for both sides. With the first goal being extremely important, Tank found a way to strike first which opened up the flood gates the rest of the way. M.Quesnel opened the scoring followed with tallies from J.Parisella, P.Frank and B.Deslauriers. As much as that production was important, lots of credit goes out to A.Mancini who had to be brilliant in nets in order to secure the win.

These results leave only two teams battling it out for the F division championship. Red Nose will need to continue playing hard and determined if they hope to defeat a resilient squad like TANK.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Albert Mancini of TANK. The veteran net minder played extremely well in game one and in game three allowing only a total of one goal.

...

Tuesday September 9
(8)Concept vs Myrmidons(1)
Concepts speed proved to be the difference as they rout the veteran squad rather easily. J.Moffa set the tone early on scoring once and feeding M.Moukas on two occasions to grab a 3-1 first period lead. The Myrmidons did manage to slow things down by the second frame allowing only one tally up until Concepts captain A.Moffa took over by riffling three straight third period markers for a hat trick. J.DeStefano earned the win in nets allowing only one first period goal courtesy of L.Hondronicolas.
(7)Stealth Assassins vs Animals(4)
D.Famulare and S.Minkiewicz each had hat tricks as the Stealth Assassins defeat the Animals in their season debut. The Stealth Assassins only pulled away by the final frame where they bagged four goals that included three with only four minutes remaining in the game. C.Cristiano helped set up three tallies for the win while M.Zollo notched two of the four Animals goals.
(3)Slayers vs PokerTree(1)
While Pokertree did a fine job suffocating their opponents, the Slayers found a way to get it done by the final frame. K.Arsenault and A.Mirolla each tallied four minutes apart to put the Slayers up 3-1.PokerTree got on the board in the third period with an effort from V.Albanese as the only player to figure out E.Morris.
(2)United Arms vs Legacy(6)
Legacy paired goals in every frame to hand the United Arms a 6-2 loss. It was the natural sniper going to work once more as E.Girouard put together two goals while feeding his most valued line mate S.Robineault. N.Kokovidis got credited the winner and P.Turturici earned the win after facing 25 shots.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Evan Morris of the Slayers. The Slayers net minder needed to be solid all game enabling his club to capture a close 3-1 victory over PokerTree.

The Canadian Ball Hockey Association would like to express its deepest sorrow over the passing of Robert Mentis in August.


Robert was an important part of the famous Brampton Midnight Express, which he’s been a member of since its inception in 1996, year where they won their first National Championship in Montréal, QC. Over the years, he went on to win a total of 7 National Championships with Midnight Express, the powerhouse of ball hockey in the 90’s.


In 2001, Robert was selected to play on Team Canada, and with him our national team won gold at the ISBHF World Championships in Toronto, ON.


We would like to take this opportunity to offer our deepest condolences to his family & close friends and teammates.


He was known to be a gentleman both on and off the floor and will be greatly missed.

Adding to their illustrious history, Red Lite easily took care of the Nfld Black Horse with a 10-1 victory on Saturday afternoon. Since the beginning of the millennium, Quebec ball hockey has dominated at the National level by capturing 11 titles.

As any truly historic champion in sports, the 2014 Mtl Red Lite club will be remembered for its success. Its one thing to get to your main objective through hard work and adversity but the Mtl Red Lite made things look a little easier compared to most competitions. After cruising through four round robin games for a perfect 4-0 record, the legendary squad allowed all but one tally by their final game versus the Saskatoon Buffalo. With scoring power not being an issue, the Mtl Red Lite used there 21 goals for and one goal against round robin numbers to carry into the more important part of the tournament.

The Red Lite continued their good play in the first round of the playoffs routing the Saskatoon Buffalo with an easy 6-0 victory. There next opponent featured the Niagara Rebels, and despite taking the match as they expected, this contest was far from being a walk in the park. Although it was expected to get more difficult moving forward, the Mtl Red Lite did find a way to edge their Ontario rival in a semi final match up by the score of 4-3. Leaving only one task to complete a perfect journey, the 10 time National Champions got it done with an exclamation point. The NFLD Black Horse also had a good run making it to the finals, but were clearly no match when it was said and done. From start to finish, the Mtl Red Lite dominated their maritime counter part posting up an impressive ten goals while conceding only one. Nelson-Vargas Dias gave his club the start they needed riffling three goals for a 5-0 lead and Samuel Beauchamp made the necessary saves allowing only one tally when the score was 7-0.

After so many great achievements and dominance from the year 2000, when you’re the Mtl Red Lite and the bar is set as high as it is, anything less than a title, is itself a failure.

Congratulations to the Mtl Red Lite. The Quebec Ball Hockey Association continues to be a dominant force at the National level. In the last 15 years, Quebec teams have captured 11 out of 15 National titles since the year 2000.



Here is a summary of their game results in Saskatoon Saskatchewan 2014.

(6) Mtl Red Lite vs Vancouver Falcons(0)

(3)Red Lite vs Black Knights(2) O.T
It took an overtime win but the Red Lite got it done to finish off their season in first place. The Black Knights managed to overcome a 2-0 deficit getting goals from P.Musto and S.Sacco before N.Vargas-Dias ended the night with the sudden death winner. S.Legris and S.Ghilarducci notched the other tallies in the victory and Mathieu Duguay got credited the win allowing only two goals in a short span of less than a minute.

Wednesday September 3
(6)Red Lite vs Black Knights(3)
The ten time National champions continued their rhythm on Wednesday night by doubling up the Black Knights. Although the Black Knights had the better start posting a 3-1 first period lead, the Red Lite found an extra gear in the final frame where they riffled four unanswered tallies to take the contest. Y.Jomphe evened the score at three goals a piece and was able to add his second of the night as the only multi goal scorer of the match.
(8)Generals vs Royal Flush(1)
K.Kuczmarski’s two first period goals set the tone as the Generals run away with an easy win. The Generals cruised their way to an easy result and had the luxury to slow things down if they wanted knowing that they had a game immediately after versus the Black Knights. Apart from his two first period goals, K.Kuczmarski added to his production by setting up both J.Adamou and J.Bradley.
(8)Generals vs Black Knights(1)
The Generals simply duplicated what they did earlier on by routing the Black Knights 8-1.Most of their production occurred in the second frame where they posted up five goals to carry a comfortable 7-1 third period lead. Maxime Duguay and S.Proulx had multi goal games, and for a second straight match, O.Gaucher allowed only one tally.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Olivier Gaucher. The Generals net minder allowed a mere two goals in back to back games versus the Royal Flush and the Black Knights.
