Peewee AA Panthers approach end of the season with perfect record 23-0-2

The Lakeshore Peewee AA Panthers got one step closer to ending their 2011-2012 season with a perfect record Saturday afternoon as they defeated the Trois-Lacs Aigles 8-3 in Kirkland.

The game had started awfully well for the Panthers who had taken a 3-0 lead with 12:24 to go in the second period thanks to goals by Arnaud Durandeau (2) and Luke Grainger. However, the Aigles had later powered their way back into the game with three unanswered goals before the end of the period. Nathan Picard (2) and Charles Doyon were the ones to score.

But the third period was all about Lakeshore as they crushed their opponents with five goals to secure a 23rd victory this season.

“Our players woke up in the third period. They started moving their skates. They started following the game plan. They were on top of their opponents all of the third period. We had five goals on 13 shots. That’s an extraordinary percentage,” said Lakeshore assistant coach Michael Zipkin.

Jesse Acteson started the onslaught 17 seconds into the third period. He scored with a wrap-around goal assisted by Shawn Kennedy. Joseph Veleno took advantage of a scramble in front to give his team a two-goal lead two minutes later. Seiji Martone scored on the power play at 3:53 when his pass attempt bounced back unto his stick and he buried it for the goal. Suddenly, it was 6-3 for Lakeshore.

James Orr scored for Lakeshore again 1:17 later with a shot that passed beyond the Trois-Lacs goalie at his right to make the score 7-3. Finally, Durandeau completed his hat trick before the end of the game when his shot was only partially blocked by Jérémy Bourdeau. The final score: 8-3.

“The last game we played against them, we made 3-3. We had come out very strong. We had played our game plan and put a lot of pressure. This is what we didn’t do today. We were a bit nonchalant. We had no legs. We didn’t skate like we should have. We had no intensity. Our breakouts were ineffective. We gave a lot of turnovers in the neutral zone. This is what we must work on and not do against teams like Lakeshore,” said Trois-Lacs head coach Jocelyn Martel.
