(4)D-Blocks vs Brewers(0)
Goals in every frame propelled the D-Blocks passed the Brewers on Thursday night. P.Iannitelli scored late in the first period, M.Day notched a lone second period tally, and D.Cuccinotta along with B.Leber completed the night bagging two third period markers. The Brewers didn’t attempt too many orange balls towards C.Scalia, who pushed away all 16 shots to earn a shutout. One thing that didn’t help the winless squad was the amount of penalty minutes taken. The season is still fairly young for the Brewers as they continue to try and put their first win together.
(5)TANK vs Legacy(4) O.T
Wanting to prove so much, Tank has grabbed the attention of everyone on Thursday night. They have the weapons to score, and the bodies to defend well as tonight was just another good example of what they are capable of. M-A Lefebvre was simply unstoppable as his four goals and the overtime helper was too much to handle for Legacy. J.Parisella benefited from the perfect feed in overtime to help give Tank their fourth win in six games. It’s just the regular season, but one thing for sure is that Legacy will look forward to a rematch after dropping this contest.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marc-Antonie Lefebvre of Tank. Anytime anyone scores four goals, and a helper on an overtime winner, will merit the honour of player of the night....
Thursday July 2
(3)French Connection vs Billionaires(4)
It took only two scorers along with a collective team effort from the Billionaires as they just snuck by the French Connection. Despite being down by a pair, the Billionaires just kept on working and it paid off in the end as a late tally from B.Marsillo decided the outcome with only two minutes remaining in the game. Marsillo scored twice in the third period right after his captain S.Bordonaro struck twice in the second frame putting his club in a good position heading into the final 15 minutes. The French Connection had the better start and never once trailed up until the mid way mark of the third period.
(4)Carnage vs Eagles(6)
The Eagles are starting to slowly show that there deceptive record isn’t reflective of what they are capable of. Tonight, they showed Carnage that they can play with them and did a fine job from start to finish keeping their opponents in check. After notching the games opening goal, C.Gagnon-Ethier may have netted the games most important tally that came on the power play for a 3-2 Eagles lead. The Eagles scored two more times before the end of the second frame, and C.Gagnon-Ethier was able to add another tally in an empty cage to complete his hat trick.
(8)Tutto Fumo vs A-Team(0)
Usually, an 8-0 game doesn’t imply the importance of goaltending but Tutto Fumo needed their net minder to make some big saves. P.Delarosbil frustrated the A-Team on several occasions and kept a clean sheet after denying over 32 shots. Tutto Fumo may lack in the speed department but compensate with the experience that they have as many of their players chipped in for a successful result. B.Sansotta led the way with a hat trick, and J.DeSua came next in line netting two behind the A-Teams net minder.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Charles Gagnon-Ethier of the Eagles. His three goals was a big reason why the Eagles got the better of Carnage on Thursday night....
Wednesday July 1
(7)Punishers vs Dragons(3)
It doesn’t seem like anything can be done to slow down C.Gagnon. The Dragons found this out after the number 28 of the Punishers scored in every period to help lead his team to another victory. While he isn’t the only that can be counted on, P.Karvouriaris demonstrates plenty of consistency as well and tonight it showed in the first period alone where he bagged two goals for a 3-0 lead. The Punishers got the start they wanted, and played it to their pace knowing that they had a second game only an hour later versus the Dream Team.
(7)Punishers vs Dream Team(1)
Not much changed from their earlier game as the Punishers add seven more goals to complete a perfect double header night. Once again, they grabbed a 3-0 lead that saw C.Stamadianos take the torch by earning two goals. P.Karvouriaris continued where he left off adding another pair of tallies which saw T.Gagnon do the same. It’s often not easy for net minders to play twice in three hours, but despite the difficult challenge, veteran F.Vigliotti was splendid in nets allowing only three goals in two games.
(3)Tropics vs Infiniti/Park Avenue(2)
They may have let this one slip away but lots of credit to the Tropics for getting it done. With a golden chance to grab a 3-2 third lead, the Infiniti/Park Avenue dropped the ball by allowing an early short handed marker. A.DeLuca benefited from the opportunity after collecting two feeds on V.Crivello and S.Wilcox’s first period goals. The Tropics jumped off to a better start in the match, and got good goaltending from J.DeLuca who pushed away 21 of 23 shots.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Freddy Vigliotti of the Punishers. Vigliotti captured back to back wins in a short period of time by allowing a total of only three goals on 41 shots....
Wednesday July 1
(5)Acolytes vs Red Wings(6)
Some late dramatics changed the mood of both squads as the Red Wings triumph 6-5.The Acolytes fought hard to climb back into the game and eventually led 5-4 up until two late goals changed the out come. M.Latreille levelled the game at four goals a piece, and A.Zarzour won it moments later leaving just under half a minute in the contest. G.Delia, captain of the Red Wings was very productive producing two goals and two assists. The Acolytes got a two goal game from their captain C.Beauchamp as well, who was able to score on the power play and once short handed.
(5)Golden Shaft vs Butchers (3)
Despite grabbing an early 1-0 lead due to a team goal, the Butchers allowed three in a row and weren’t able to recover. L.Larocque established some confidence after netting a short handed marker to even the game at one goal a piece. The Golden Shaft brought it to another level by the second where they added two unanswered goals from D.Boivin-Audette and L.Larocque. Each side exchanged two third period tallies along with a multiple of penalties that made the game hard to manage for both clubs. This came as a big win for the Golden Shaft against a difficult opponent as they now sit alone on top of the Wednesday standings.
(0)MoneyShot vs Bolts(5)
Quick and vibrant, the speedy M.Gagnon netted the Bolts first three goals of the night en route to a 5-0 win. The Bolts showed tonight they were clearly the better of the two sides, producing tallies in every period and limiting the Money Shot to no goals. M.Melo protected his cage perfectly from start to finish frustrating a good offence. This result has the Bolts sharing five spots for second place.
(2)Brewers vs Horsemen(4)
After winning the opening frame 2-0, the Horsemen outlasted the Brewers in a 4-2 double up win. The Horsemen always led by at least one goal and made things hard for the Brewers offence to get going. M.Vinciguerra was the last line of defence and lived up to expectations by allowing only two goals on 26 shots. If there was one thing that wasn’t much of a surprise, was that V.Pandza found the back of the net on two occasions that included the winner.
(7)Hellfish vs Butchers(1)
Its one night that the Butchers will need to put behind them. While the first period may have been fine playing to a 1-1 tie, the rest of the game belonged only to the Hellfish. This contest took that direction in the span of only 56 seconds where F.Benhamadi and C.Dapoulias tallied for a 3-1 lead. If that wasn’t enough, the Hellfish made sure to cap off a solid night by adding four third period markers. C.Dapoulias was responsible for adding three of those tallies for a four goal night. M.Revolorio had an impact as well producing five points, and F.Vigliotti earned anther win in nets after facing 24 shots.
(8)23rd Hour vs NWV(6)
Saving their best for last, the 23rd Hour beat the clock with five third period goals. The 23rd Hour trailed all game long and finally grabbed the lead when A.EL-Aintabli evened the score with less than four minutes remaining. S.Lafortune had already two goals before completing his hat trick in an empty cage. It came in a losing cause, but for a second week in a row, K.Dube was the NWV’s best player after notching four goals and an assist.
(4)Chaos vs Wheeling Nailers(3) O.T
P.Mandato’s overtime winner Wednesday night gave Chaos a 4-3 victory which helped his club earn key points to the standings. That goal came on the power play with 30 seconds left in the sudden death period. Chaos got efforts from four different goal scorers, and solid goaltending from their captain R.Picard. Despite the loss, G.Barreca was very productive by being involved in all three goals for the Wheeling Nailers.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Mathew Melo of the Bolts. The captain and net minder denied every MoneyShot player, and earned a well deserved shutout after facing 25 shots....
Tuesday June 30
(1)Expos vs Dark Warriors(11)
Payam Assadi produced four goals, and J.Rochon riffled a hat trick as the Dark Warriors trounced the Expos 11-1 on Tuesday night. The Expos finished the first period strong when P.KastaniotisJr scored very late to cut the lead in half. However, once the two minute mark of the second period hit, it was all Dark Warriors. The second place seed began their barrage of goals netting seven alone in the second period before ending the game earlier than usually by posting a pair by the final frame. M.Minkiewicz chipped in with a pair of tallies, and E.Girouard along with I.Lesic each had four assists.
(6)Hellenic Republic vs Rhum & Coke(4)
A four goal second period eruption was what the Hellenic Republic needed to oust Rhum & Coke. Three out of those four tallies came from A.Serham alone while the other came off of J.Probonas’s blade which eventually stood up for the game winner. As he often gets his name noticed for the Hellenic Republic, P.Abbiasini had a big third period producing both goals for a comfortable 6-2 lead. It was only a week ago that D.Boyczun of Rhum & Coke merited the honour of player of the night, and tonight it showed once more how valuable he is after netting all four goals for his team.
(2)Smackdaddys vs Spartans(3)
The Smackdaddys often finish the game stronger than their opponents but can’t seem to get the better jump. After falling behind 3-0, the Smackdaddys decided to get the on board as of the third period where they put together two straight goals only to fall short once more. J.Mandracchia made some noise by scoring twice that included the winner, and C.Stavriadis kept his club in it all game denying 30 of 32 shots. With only 9 goals against in five games, the Spartans are the only club to remain undefeated on Tuesday night.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jonathan Mandracchia of the Spartans. His two goals made a big difference in a close 3-2 result over the Smackdaddys....
Sunday June 28
(6)HC Inter vs Scoring Eagles(1)
Make it three in a row as the HC Inter recuperates from a slow start to the season. The recent winners of there last three games came together early on and large part due to D.Pasquini’s two first period tallies. D.Crivello notched a lone second period goal, and W.Honce along with M.Crivello put the game to rest after adding a pair of third period insurance markers. The Scoring Eagles fired close to 20 shots and managed only one passed the solid net minding of M.Lesperance.
(4)Untouchables vs Zeus(3)
Three’s a charm for M.Dubuc and the Untouchables as the edge Zeus 4-3 on Sunday night. Dubuc carried most of the load posting three goals in the first two periods before J.Lesperance-Daoust clutched the winner just passed the mid way point of the final frame. S.Trudel, like on most night added a pair of points, and E.Ladouceur kept the fort in nets despite allowing a pair of third period markers.
(4)Mighty Ducks vs Les Bakaloo(7)
Les Bakaloo continue to ride high after a 7-4 rout of the Mighty Ducks. With the offence running on all cylinders, H-A Leveille had the most tallies and points netting a hat trick by the late stages of the second period. D-B Dubois may have scored Les Bakaloo’s biggest goal of the night on the power play for the winner while able to finish with four points. This win improves their record to 4-1 and sit alone on top of the E2 standings for first place.
(7)Hulkamania vs HC Mutts(4)
Down 2-0 early on didn’t faze Hulkamania as they regrouped quickly to take the contest. M.Maggiore put the HC Mutts up on a pair of blistering slap shots giving M.Trivisonno no chance what so ever. It didn’t take long for B.Deslauriers to respond with back to back tallies before A.Jalilvand put Hulkamania up 3-2 on the power play late in the frame. M.Gagnon sparked his club adding a pair of markers that included the winner. B.Deslauriers made sure to put the game away by completing his hat trick, something M.Maggiore did as well by the early stages of the final frame for the HC Mutts.
(6)Park Avenue Legacy vs 1 Timer(5) S.O
They fought back four times to even the score, and still couldn’t get it done in the shootout. The 1 Timer scored twice on the power play, and got a two goal third period from N.Blanchard to force the extra time. With overtime solving nothing, each side sent three players for the breakaway competition. Only C.Stamadianos found a way to win the contest with the shootouts lone goal while his goaltender Pedram Assadi denied all three shots from the 1 Timer. Each side were evenly matched tying every period, and attempting the same amount of shots towards the net minders.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Hugo-Alexandre Leveille of Les Bakaloo. His three goals and two assists propelled his team to capture a 7-4 win over the Mighty Ducks....
Wednesday December 3
(5)Capitals vs Royal Flush(1)
Make it two straight wins for the Capitals to start off their season as they rout the Royal Flush 5-1 on Wednesday night. The Capitals worked their special teams scoring once on the power play while adding a short handed marker. E.Vigneault and M.Champagne each had two assists and M.Carmelo got credited the winner after netting a late first period marker. The Royal Flush will need to find answers in the goal scoring department after a slow start posting only one tally in two games.
(6)Red Lite vs Hustlers(3)
The Hustlers fall twice so far by the same score, this time versus the recent Premier division champions. Red Lite won every single frame and were mostly productive by the third where the buried three tallies. Y.Labonte finished his night with a hat trick.
(4)Rated R vs All Blacks(3)

Wednesday November 19
(7)Generals vs Royal Flush(0)
The Generals were able to put last weeks outcome behind them quickly as they handed the Royal Flush a 7-0 crushing to open their season. J.Bradley had goals in every frame for a hat trick and K.Kuczmarski also notched three tallies while S.Comptant got the other marker. The Royal Flush didn’t have the roster they hoped for and barely got any scoring attempts on M.Gallant who easily earned a shutout.
(6)All Blacks vs Hustlers(3)
After a wild opening period, the All Blacks continued their progress and eventually doubled up the Hustlers. S.Ghilarducci opened and closed the scoring while adding a helper on the game winning tally. The Hustlers had a decent start riffling two first period goals but struggled to get the ball in the net the rest of the way. N.Tzaferis and his captain T.Bozinakis combined for four points in the loss.
(1)Capitals vs Rated R(0)
One tally, along with tight defence and solid goaltending was enough for a Capitals victory. C.Valois struck late in the first period and the Capitals never looked back as they protected the lead the rest of the way. Each goaltender lived up to their expectations that saw J-F Aumais collect the shutout while his counter part A.Caruso was a rock as well allowing only one goal.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to J-F Aumais. The veteran net minder stood strong between the pipes allowing the Capitals to grab a 1-0 win over Rated R....
Dek Hockey Drummond takes home the 2015 provincial championship
A three goal one assist performance by Stephanie Savoie propels Dek Hockey Drummond to 4-0 shutout win over le Diablo de Montreal. It’s Dek Hockey Drummonds fourth final at the provincial qualifier, and after dropping two straight, they regained their crown as Quebec’s best team. Savoie led the way in two categories capturing the most points with eight while scoring the most riffling up to five goals. Apart from her brilliant display, the current champs got efforts from every single player in their line up out scoring their opponents 16-2 in four games. Two of those results were shutouts earned by Krystel Boutin who did a splendid job protecting her cage.
The round robin was held on the Saturday where all five teams played two games each for positioning. Les Bonobos, led by Melie Legris dropped both their contests and hoped to rebound on Sunday where they fell to the Warriors. The Warriors won that game 3-0 thanks to a shutout performance by Nadia Varriano. The semi-finals featured Equipe Quebec versus Diablo de Montreal while the Warriors faced off against Dek Hockey Drummond. In the first period alone, le Diablo de Montreal captured the frame with a 4-2 score getting goals from four different players. Melissa Globensky netted the winner and Annie Leduc was able to feed two teammates. As for the other semi finals, Dek Hockey Drummond continued their progress in a 4-1 rout of the Warriors.
As most would have thought of a Dek Hockey Drummond versus an Equipe Quebec finals due to their recent success, le Diablo de Montreal turned some heads over the week end. Amanda Lalande did a fine job assembling many young talented players and put up a good fight against a team that is still in their prime.
The Quebec ball hockey association would like to thank all five captains (Melie Legris of Les Bonobos, Brittany Diabo of the Montreal Warriors, Lorraine Bourcier of Equipe Quebec, Amanda Lalande of Les Diablo de Montreal and finally Vanessa De Grandpre of Dek Hockey Drummond) for making it happen and putting together what was an exciting brand of hockey.
On behalf of the Quebec ball hockey association, congratulations go out to Vanessa De Grandpre and the rest of Dek Hockey Drummond for capturing the 2015 provincial championship.
Here is a summary of the elimination round held on the Sunday.
Round 1 :
4th place Warriors 3 5th place Les Bonobos 0
