Game Story

QUEBEC CRUISES TO WIN OVER B.C.

QUINTON AMUNDSON

MORDEN, Man. – Maya Labad (Mascouche, Que.) produced two goals and an assist and Marianne Picard (Repentigny, Que.) lit the lamp twice to guide Quebec to a 7-1 win over British Columbia in preliminary-round action Tuesday at the 2019 National Women’s Under-18 Championship.

Laurence Frenette (Boisbriand, Que.), Kaleann Laforge (St-Nazaire d'Acton, Que.) and Mégane Quirion (St-Eustache, Que.) also delivered goals for Quebec, and Ann-Frédérik Naud (St-Félix-de-Valois, Que.) shone from a playmaking perspective with three assists.

Sarah Paul (West Kelowna, B.C.) delivered the lone goal for B.C.

Ève Gascon (Terrebonne, Que.) provided a steady 21-save performance in net to pick up the win.

Quebec surged out of the opening puck drop by manufacturing a 2-0 lead before the game was four minutes old. Labad drew first blood just 18 seconds in with a sharp-angle wrist shot and Picard buried a rebound off a wild scramble in the B.C. crease less than three minutes later for a power-play marker.

British Columbia cut the lead in half before the five-minute mark courtesy of a goal-of-the-tournament candidate from Paul that saw her soar past a defender with a toe-drag before beating Gascon with a backhand dangle.

Picard’s second power-play tally of the game restored Quebec’s two-goal edge with less than two minutes to go before the first intermission as she cruised into the deep slot and beat B.C. netminder Kayle Munro (North Vancouver, B.C.) with a forehand drive.

B.C. outshot Quebec 12-10 in the opening frame.

Despite switching to Jordyn Verbeek (Langley, B.C.) in goal, B.C. could not stop Quebec from finding the back of the net twice in the first four minutes for the second-straight period.

LaForge floated in a wrist shot to expand Quebec’s lead to 4-1 at 2:11 of the stanza, and then Labad one-timed the puck home for a power-play goal 88 seconds later.

Quebec fed off the momentum to build a 15-8 edge in shots in the middle frame. However, B.C. skaters did have their opportunities as they forced Gascon to weather multiple point-blank shots late in the period.

Frenette and Quirion finalized the scoring in a third period that saw Quebec outshoot B.C. 19-2.

Quebec finished the game 3-for-8 on the power play while B.C. failed on convert on three opportunities.
