BAIE-COMEAU – Faced with a goalkeeper in great form, the Drakkar of Baie-Comeau has still found a way to sign a seventh consecutive victory Saturday afternoon, when he came to the end of Olympic of Gatineau by a score of 2-1.

The cerberus enemy Creed Jones (35 stops) was very alert in front of the offensive of the North-Coastal, who have been bombarded with 17 shots in the first period without managing to deceive his vigilance. The number 30 has been smoking on several occasions.

The winners have finally broken the ice to their 26th start of the match when captain Gabriel Fortier has put his 21st of the campaign before the Russian Yaroslav Alexeyev double the advance of his own during a power play.

With a few numerical advantage to turn the third round, the visitors have re-ignited the debate (Metis Reolens) in the end of the game, but goalkeeper Alex Orio (25 stops) and his teammates were able to hold out.

“The players started the game. Their keeper (Jones) made big stops in the first period to allow them to stay in the match. However, there have been too many turnovers in our territory that could have cost us dearly,” admitted head coach Martin Bernard, while acknowledging the brilliance of his great cerberus right-handed.

The Drakkar will be back in front of his supporters, next Tuesday, in order to receive the visit of the Armada of Blainville-Boisbriand.
