Revenge for our Lions!

It was clear from the get-go that our Lions were out for revenge after Friday night’s humbling loss to the Royals in Reading. Trois-Rivières’ Nicolas Larivière even dropped the gloves with Reading’s Brendan Hoffman after only two minutes had gone by in the period. The Royals were then penalized twice in a span of 20 seconds, which ultimately led to the Lions capitalizing on a power play opportunity. A bad tripping penalty committed by Lions’ assistant captain Anthony Beauregard gave the Royals a power play of their own, and they too used the opportunity wisely to tie the game at 1-1 via a Shane Sellar goal. At the 16:14 mark of the period Trois-Rivières’ Matthew Barron doubled the Lions’ lead with a top-right corner shot.

The Lions ratcheted their offense up a notch in the second period registering 13 shots on goal. After eight minutes of play Trois-Rivières’ Cedric Montminy – playing for the first time after missing the past two games – scored the only goal of the period. All the while, Lions’ goaltender William Lavallière made some key saves, not giving the Royals a chance to get back into the game. The referees also kept their whistles in their pockets, as no penalties were called in the period.

It was a scoreless third period, but the penalty box was well-occupied as five penalties were given before the period was half over. The Royals tried, but couldn’t, shake off the Lions defending as the period wore on. Trois-Rivières prevailed, 3-1, and Lavallière recorded his first professional victory in his first game with the Lions!
