Thursday July 5
(2)Carnage vs Mighty Drunks(3) O.T
Y.Dube 2 goals rally Mighty Drunks past Carnage
Carnage certainly were frustrated over a lost opportunity to win the game. They played solid for nearly two entire periods but learned that it wasn't enough unable to coast to the finish line. Their downfall began very late in the second period when V.Mancini set up J.Morin. That goal only fuelled a more desperate side that knew they could bounce back. Still, it wasn't evident that the equaliser would occur as many minutes went by with neither side scoring. Then, with only two minutes remaining, V.Mancini set up another teammate, this time Y.Dube benefiting-from a perfect pass. That dramatic finish was just what the Mighty Drunks were aiming for, who wasted no time in the sudden death frame to stun their opponents. For a third consecutive time, V.Mancini added another assist to the very same Y.Dube to cap off a remarkable comeback.
(10)Les Rouuuges vs Chaos(3)
Offense powers Les Rouuuges to lopsided win over Chaos
Neither side did themselves favours playing with barely any players, especially in humid conditions. It was a nightmare situation for the two net minders. B.Picard may have been a little more busy having to face 39 shots over his counterpart C.Malkoun, who had better nights despite winning the game. A.Zarzour and F.Bchara led the way notching three goals apiece while combining for eleven points. Les Rouuuges had only scored twice in the first half of the match. Eight of their ten goals came as of the mid way point where B.Picard just couldn't take it anymore.
(3)SBS Trashers vs JL Brossard(4)
Wild ending favours JLR Brossard
It was a heartbreaking loss for the SBS Trashers as they fell to the JLR Brossard in the late stages of the game. Led by their top gun up front, J.Scalia notched all three goals and nearly tied the game only to over play his back hand after beating P.Assadi. S.Robineault put the JLR Brossard in front 3-2 with his second right before Y.Gazura ended the game in a gut wrenching fashion for the SBS Trashers. Gazura was also responsible for setting up Robineault's go ahead marker.
(2)Nighthawks vs Bramabulls(6)
Bramabulls jump early to catch Nighthawks off guard
The quick start may have been the key for the Bramabulls 6-2 rout of the Nighthawks on Thursdays night. By striking twice early on, the Nighthawks were forced to consume more energy in hopes of battling back. Eventually the deficit was answered but a quick response by J.Lemme complicated the matter for the Nighthawks. They fell behind and never recovered dropping a one sided third period. T.Karasek notched back to back tallies and P.Bertone scored late to end the muggy affair. In his first game dressed, J.Lemme set up the games first two goals while netting the winner in an impressive three point performance.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Yannick Dube of the Mighty Drunks. When his team needed something to give, the Mighty Drunks night was rescued thanks to Y.Dube's late equaliser and sudden death winner.
