Vikings crush Jr. B Lions

Due to the weekend ice storm there wasn’t a whole lot of Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey action, but before the bad weather arrived, the Morrisburg Lions were able to make the trip to Casselman, on Thursday night, December 19.

Results weren’t good for the St. Lawrence Division’s last place Lions as they were handed a 9-2 by the division’s leading Vikings. The win puts the Vikings’ record this season to 25 wins with just one loss and two losses in overtime.

The Vikings went up 3-0 over the Lions in the first period and then held a way out of reach, 7-0 advantage, after two.

Thierry Gibeault led the Vikings attack with four goals. Sebastien Planted added two, and Mark Hough, Gabriel Laurin and Devin Desnoyers counted singles.

Lions goaltender Brandon Chilton played just over 53 minutes of the game and was relieved by John Gilmer. Gianmarco De Meis was in net for the Vikings.

Scoring for the Lions was Isaac Brownlee with two goals.

The Vikings out shot the Lions 44 to 26.

Coming up on Friday, December 27th the Lions are on the road to Alexandria. Saturday night, December 28 they host the Winchester Hawks. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

 They will complete a three-game weekend on the road to take on Akwesasne on Sunday, December 29.
