CAHIERS SPÉCIAUX

The West Nipissing Lynx split their weekend once again, this time with a huge win over the Ville-Marie Pirates, 10-1, and a loss to the Bradford Rattlers, 3-7.

The Pirates are the only team to have beaten the Lynx at home this season, and it’s safe to say the local crew was out for redemption on Friday.

It was the Lynx’ first game since adding three new players: last year’s captain Nate McLeod, the versatile Sam Lacroix and Dew Tobobandung, who spent the last two seasons as captain of the NOJHL’s French River Rapids. 

As soon as the puck dropped, it was clear the Lynx were on a mission. The team played what could be called their best game yet, as all lines were clicking. It was the Pirates who drew first blood minutes into the game, but it was all Lynx afterwards, with 5 goals in the first period. 

The bulk of the scoring came from two lines: Sebastien Despatie, William Michaud and Thomas Farrell, then the trio of Oliver Johanson, Alex Goulet and Nate McLeod. 


“We’ve been practicing our new lines all week and they really clicked that night. The line of Michaud, Despatie and Farrell really shined. They know that they all have different roles on that line and it was really executed perfectly. They all finished with a good amount of points,” notes Assistant Coach Mathieu Gaudette.
