Thursday May 28
(1)Brewers vs D-Blocks(4)
It may not have been the way they wanted to start their season after capturing the D Thursday night championship but the Brewers will get over it quickly. D-Blocks have been out of action for a while and after making some adjustments, the newly added squad look to be in immediate form. With goals in every period and with efforts from four different goal scorers, the D-Blocks will use that confidence moving forward in what will be a grinding division. The Brewers needed the five minute mark of the third period to get to F.Russo who denied every Brewer except for D.Catalono. The D-Blocks saw B.Lober accumulate three points and P.Iannitelli notch the winner late in the second period.
(5)TANK vs Legacy(5) S.O
In a game that is never over until it’s over, thought Tank a valuable lesson after blowing a 4-2 lead with only 30 seconds remaining. New to the D division, the young crew in green used three solid lines to nearly defeat an established Legacy team. The captain N.Gilbert showed a great example by posting three points that included two third period goals for Tank. At that point, it was only about running out the time but that changed when S.Robineault and N.Zermalias scored late to force the extra time. Each side couldn’t get it done in the sudden death period which left the shootout where T.Bozinakis scored for Legacy while B.Deslauriers tallied his second for Tank.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Fabio Russo. In his opening game of the season, the D-Blocks net minder denied the defending champs to only one goal....
Thursday May 28
(6)French Connection vs A-Team(2)
Led by a two goal opening period from J.Faresse, the French Connection used their experience in protecting the lead the rest of the way. The men in blue kept a clean score sheet and led 5-0 until the five minute mark of the third period where the A-Team finally got on the board. P.Hargreaves also had a two goal night, J.Dumont along with S.Legare each had three assists, and F.Gaudet-Peloquin held the fort between the pipes allowing only two third period tallies.
(9)Wocafloka vs Eagles(5)
Only two games into the season, the Wocafloka have convinced everyone that they’ll be the team to beat. Although they may have won this contest, the Eagles caused some concern after grabbing a 4-1 lead which forced a wake up call from their opponents. It’s not often that every single player in one team accumulates at least one point but that was the case on this night as all eleven Wocafloka players got their name on the score sheet. M.Latreille, A.Moscato and E.Brady all had two goal games for Wocafloka while P-A Surprenant did the same for the Eagles.
(4)Billionaires vs Carnage(5) O.T
When it looked like the Billionaires were on their way to protecting a 4-2 third period lead, things only turned for the worst. Carnage out matched their opponents by the third period winning the frame 2-0 with goals from Y.Mouchaca and A.Kalaydjian forcing what was a dramatic overtime finish. Each side saw the clock ticking away waiting for the shootout to happen only to have a slap shot from S.Giannoulakis end the game with five seconds remaining. As much as that goal was heroic, Carnage only got to that point by getting a collective team effort from everyone.
The SalumiVino Player of the night goes to Spiros Giannoulakis of Carnage. His top corner slap shot won his club the game with only five seconds left on the clock in overtime....
Wednesday May 27
(0)Black Knights vs Generals(7)
While chemistry isn’t an issue for the Generals, the Black Knights will need to develop some quickly if they want to avoid getting blown out. The Generals cake walked their way to an easy night and had their best period in the second where they buried four chances. P-M Chenier had back to back tallies and K.Kuczmarski scored twice as well as each player had multi goal games. He didn’t need to steal the match but J.Vrettas still had to be very good in nets in order to record a shutout. It’s still very early in the season, and while the Generals will keep doing their thing, the Black Knights will look for solutions and make the necessary adjustments after a slow start.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to John Vrettas. Its never easy shutting out an opponent at this level, but J.Vrettas was able to do it versus the Knights after facing 15 shots....
Wednesday May 27
(5)Dragons vs Dream Team(2)
After a scoreless first period, the Dragons riffled away netting three second period goals en route to 5-2 win over the Dream Team. G.DeMarinis scored his first of two late in the second period giving the Dragons a two goal cushion into the third. F.Atkinson was behind setting up two tallies for the Dragons, including an assist on his line mate DeMarinis’s game winner. The Dream Team couldn’t get much going and struck only twice with goals from J.Maringer and D.Boivin-Audette.
(4)The Tropics vs Infiniti/Park Avenue(6)
One let down period from the Tropics made the difference in this contest. Infiniti/Park Avenue surged four second period unanswered tallies to carry a 5-2 lead with only one period to play. Part of the offence came from S.Robineault, who’s been on fire as of late by bagging another hat trick. A.Jalilvand was behind making three goals happen for the win while the Tropics captain J.Crivello was one of his clubs better players posting two goals.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Simon Robineault. The speedy forward put three behind the Tropics net minder to lead Infiniti/Park Avenue to a 6-4 victory....
Wednesday May 27
(5)Brewers vs Monsters(3)
A collective team effort led to a good start for the Brewers as they defeat the Monsters 5-3 on Wednesday night. The Brewers powered three straight goals before conceding their first by the mid may mark of the game. E.Pellerin collected three big points that included the winner while feeding T.Fernando on two occasions. Despite the loss, P.Klitirinos had a strong finish for the Monsters posting two power play goals.
(5)Hellfish vs Wheeling Nailers(1)
They didn’t have the start they wanted, but as time went on, the Wheeling Nailors tweaked their game to keep it respectable. New to the league, the Wheeling Nailors got a sense of what to expect as of the second period where they won the frame 1-0 on a goal from R.Shadeed. The Hellfish caught their opponents off guard building a 4-0 first period lead that saw R.Kelendji strike twice to beat A.Bergamin. F.Vigliotti earned the win in nets after facing just over 15 shots.
(6)Golden Shaft vs Acolytes(0)
Y.St-Georges scored two goals, A.Etesonne pushed away 22 shots, and the Golden Shaft cruised for an easy 6-0 win. For three straight periods, the Golden Shaft produced offence and defended well not giving the Acolytes enough time to make a move. It’s still early in the season but the Golden Shaft look solid already as the hope to challenge for one of the top seeds by the end of the season.
(6)Red Wings vs Money Shot(4)
As much as the Money Shot kept it close all game long, the Red Wings were able to hold on to a 6-4 victory. On many occasions the Money Shot reduced the margin to only one goal but couldn’t even the score as the Red Wings kept increasing the lead by two. A.Zarzour was involved in half of his teams goals bagging a hat trick while his captain G.Delia had a solid night converting twice along with a pair of feeds .As for the Money Shot, J.Kilronomos scored twice while J.Tortorici finished with three points.
(3)Horsemen vs 23rd Hour(5)
With a chance to make the score 3-0, the Horsemen gave up a short handed goal instead never to recover. P.Salvo netted that big tally cutting the lead in half which led to a multiple of third period back breaking goals for the 23rd Hour. J.Girosan tied the game with only two minutes remaining, and M.El-Aintabli crushed his opponent’s just moments later giving the 23rd Hour their first lead of the night. Both those goals came with the help of Salvo who finished with a clutch three point performance.
(1)Chaos vs NWV(8)
M.St-Laurent and Y.Mouchaca each scored twice in a lopsided 8-1 victory over Chaos. Clearly the stronger of both sides, the NWV controlled the pace and never found themselves in any danger posting at least two goals in every frame. There only let down occurred on their own power play where M.D’Alessandro scored short handed to beat B.Madonis for a rare time.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Pat Salvo of the 23rd Hour. Salvo scored short handed to put his club back in the game and assisted twice including one on the equaliser and the other on the game winning tally as of the 13 minute mark of the final frame....
Tuesday May 26
(5)Smackdaddys vs Rhum & Coke(3)
You never want to give up a short handed marker at a crucial time of any hockey game, but that’s what Rhum & Coke did to drop their contest versus the Smackdaddys. P.Casacalenda came through for the Smackdaddys breaking a 2-2 tie on Rhum & Coke’s power play just passed the mid way point of the game. S.Euchi then added to the lead late in the game with his first of two on the night with both goals coming with the man advantage. Rhum & Coke had the better start to the night building a 2-1 first period lead, and worked their power play fairly well by striking twice with tallies from J.Blais and D.Boyczun.
(1)Smooth Sailors vs Dark Warriors(3)
It’s never a bad thing when a team can defeat a solid club with only two changes to their bench. The Dark Warriors did everything right by keeping the game close and by striking when the opportunity was given. S.Robineault was clutch posting goals in all three frames, and P.Turturici was definitely a huge reason why his club got the result by making save key brilliant saves all game long.
(7)Spartans vs Hellenic Republic(2)
Once the first period ended, the Spartans paced their way to an easy 7-2 win over the Hellenic Republic. The Spartans carried a 3-0 lead into the second frame where P.Karvouriaris and E.Antonopoulos each notched their second tally of the night. P.Musto and G.Tsolis didn’t score but made three goals happen with assists, and C.Stavriadis earned the win after facing a mere 13 shots.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Pietro Turturici of the Dark Warriors. Having to do it with a short bench, the combative net minder limited a team like the Smooth Sailors to only one goal....
Sunday May 24
(6)1 Timer vs Zeus(2)
Led by a T.Daigneault hat trick, the 1 Timer start their season strong by capturing a 6-2 win over Zeus. Daigneault carried the load posting goals in every frame. P-A Surprenant used his strength to notch the winner and F.Koch was solid denying 20 shots towards him. Zeus do have the players to adjust and will look to do so after a let down in their season opener.
(5)HC Inter vs Les Bakaloo(9)
If there is one thing that’s for sure is that Les Bakaloo won’t have any problems scoring goals. Already with nine tallies, players such as D.Bastien and M-A Nadeau each had hat tricks while H.Leveille was able to put two behind the defenceless net minder. Les Bakaloo spread out their offence during the game netting three markers in every frame and defended fairly well up until the nine minute mark of the final period where HC Inter fought back with three straight goals less than three minutes apart.
(6)HC Mutts vs Lumberjacks(5) O.T
J.Sacco and his HC Mutts had time to savour their comeback victory over the Lumberjacks. J.Brandone helped set up two out of the three third period goals, S.Settembre notched the equaliser and N.DeGergorio was at the right place at the right time to complete the comeback in overtime. Despite starting off slow, the HC Mutts never felt any pressure as confidence took over by the third period where they began their barrage of goals. G.Gamieri had a multi goal game for the win while S.Denis was the Lumberjacks best player posting a hat trick.
(11)Untouchables vs Scoring Eagles(1)
New to the division, the Scoring Eagles will need a few games to adjust. Usually when eleven goals go in, many different players tend to participate in the scoring but it wasn’t the case for the Untouchables. Only two players took care of that department as J.Daoust and S.Trudel combined for all eleven goals. Daoust had the most tallies with six and S.Trudel had five but was able to add four helpers to grab immediate control of the scoring lead. A.Vivas didn’t have a busy night as the net minder saved all but one shot from J.Pace.
(6)Hulkamania vs Mighty Ducks(4)
If not for a great start to the game, Hulkamania may not have captured the win versus a quicker bunch. Down by a pair, the Mighty Ducks used their legs and speed forcing their opponents to play on their heels for most of the night. Even though they evened the score at four goals a piece courtesy of J.Breeze , J.Courteau immediately responded for Hulkamania with his first of two on the night. A.Jalilvand had a three point game and was heavily involved in the win while T.Salberg did all he could for the Mighty Ducks netting two goals.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Stephane Trudel. The left winger toppled his opponents bagging five goals and four helpers to help the Untouchables capture the win....
Thursday May 22
(2)Bramabulls vs Wocafloka(11)
Wocafloka opened up a four-goal lead after the first period and did not look back en route to an 11-2 win over the Bramabulls. E.Brady was all over the court for Wocafloka, as he tallied three goals and four assists in the win. The Bramabulls were doomed as of the seven minute mark of the first period where Wocafloka began their barrage of goals. J.Samaha, Y.Gazura and A.Agudelo each chipped in with a pair of markers making the goaltender P.Delarosbil work all game long.
(4)Carnage vs A-Team(2)
J.Bourlakos notched two goals, and Carnage scored three power play goals to beat the A-Team 4-2 on Thursday night. A.Kalaydjian and M.Raposo also had man advantage goals with the help from their captain F.Pace, who fed both tallies. Each side played to a 2-2 first period before Carnage won the final two frames to capture the result. B.Verducci made 15 saves as the recent Kennedy Crew champion starts his season on the right foot.
(2)Eagles vs Billionaires(8)
The Billionaires got their moneys worth as they downed the Eagles 8-2 to start their season. The goals came in bunches early on as five went passed the defenceless net minder in the first period alone. M.Colatosti continued the barrage of goals, adding two late second period tallies for his hat trick. Another big piece of the puzzle was J.Velenosi, who scored twice and made three goals happen with assists. The Eagles will need to go through the motions of getting their feet wet, but as time goes on, the young squad will only improve.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to John Bourlakos of Carnage. Bourlakos notched two out of the four goals scored for his team in a close 4-2 win over the A-Team....
Wednesday May 20(F Divisions)
(4)23rd Hour vs Acotyles(6)
M.Allard lifts the Acotyles to victory with a late power play goal. Deadlocked at four goals a piece, the Acotyles took advantage of a late power play opportunity never to look back. Leading to that point, S.Dicaire was a menace posting three markers. The 23rd Hour trailed the match on three occasions, and despite evening the score every time, they couldn’t take the next step to turn the pressure on their opponents.
(3)Money Shot vs Golden Shaft(4)
The Money Shot nearly overcame a 3-0 deficit only to fall short in the end. Captain R.Ricard scored his first of two early in the second period for a 3-0 lead .For nearly two periods, the Golden Shaft didn’t allow a goal until J.D’Angelo finally got on the board for the Money Shot. The Golden Shaft doubled their opponents 2 to 1 in the shots column finishing with 32 attempts towards P.DelliColli, who fell short to his counter part T.Leroux.
(4)Hellfish vs Bolts(2)
It took just over half the game for the Hellfish to finally get things going. Once N.Fotakis got his club on the board, the Hellfish found their touch scoring twice in both the second and third frames. Fotakis evened the score at one goal a piece before adding his second for a 4-1 third period lead. After allowing the first goal of the match, F.Vigliotti shut the door for most of the contest enabling the Hellfish to take over with four straight tallies.
(1)Brewers vs NWV(4)
C.Kalogeropoulos celebrated two goals and added an assist to help lift NWV over the Brewers. The NWV left the opening frame with a 2-1 lead and added a pair of insurance markers only as of the third where Kalogeropoulos added his second of the contest. The Brewers scored only once in the first period courtesy of R.Hagen before going through the frustrations of trying to solve B.Madonis for a second time.
(1)Chaos vs Monsters(7)
P.Legatos nets a hat trick during a seven goal barrage, and the Monsters got off to a spectacular start with a 7-1 victory over Chaos. P.Klitirinos scored and added three helpers while A.Klitirinos had a game to remember finishing with six points. The only slight miss hap for the Monsters was when J-M Tremblay got the better of the Monsters net minder J.Liopoulos early in the second period.
(5)Punishers vs Dream Team(2) E division
The Punishers carried good habits as they take down the Dream Team to start their season. The recent F2 champs only took charge late in the second period where P.Karvouriaris scored his first of two to get the Punishers on the board. The third period was filled with non stop action where each side combined with six out of the seven goals scored during the whole game. It was C.Gagnon that ran over his opponents as his three goals and two assists were too much to handle. F.Vigliotti just finished playing a half hour earlier with the Hellfish and didn’t miss a beat acquiring a second win in a very short period of time.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Connor Gagnon of the Punishers. In just over a period, Gagnon broke out posting five points that included a hat trick....
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)

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.
