Leos console each other however they can

Lions console each other as they can


Already out of the ECHL playoff picture, the Trois-Rivières Lions did not stop their efforts, however, winning 3-1 over the Reading Royals , Saturday afternoon, at the Santander Arena. 

Marc-André Bergeron's men took their revenge on the team that mathematically eliminated them from the race on Friday under result of 6 to 2. It was even with the help of a new goalkeeper that the Lions signed this victory.

In his first start as a professional, William Lavallière blocked 27 shots . This year, the 23-year-old Montrealer played with the Chambre HC de Terrebonne, a club in the Quebec Senior AAA Hockey League.

On offense, Cole Gallant scored his first goal in the Trois-Rivières uniform, during a five-on-three power play in the first period. Matthew Barron added the winning goal before the end of the engagement by hitting the target on a run with William Lemay.

Returning to the game after a short absence, captain Cédric Montminy scored the his third goal with a very precise wrist shot in the second period.

There are only six games left in this 2022-2023 Lions season. They will face the Royals again on Sunday afternoon.
