INGLIS’ THREE POINTS LEAD WEST OVER QUEBEC
PORT ALBERNI, BC – Charles Inglis scored twice – once shorthanded and once on the power play – as West opened the 2009 World Under-17 Challenge with a 4-2 win over Quebec on Monday afternoon at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.
Inglis scored midway through the second period to give West a lead it would never relinquish, and set up Brooks Macek for an insurance marker five minutes later as West became the first team to find the win column at this year’s tournament.
Dominick Favreau scored the first goal for West, while Yasin Cissé and Yoan Pinette had the Quebec goals. Favreau and Cissé scored their goals just seven seconds apart in the opening period.
Calvin Pickard, whose older brother Chet is a member of Canada’s National Junior Team, turned aside 31 shots to pick up the victory, while Louis Boileau-Domingue took the loss after making 26 saves.
Both teams will see the ice again on Tuesday – West will be in action at the Multiplex, facing Finland in the early game (2 p.m. PST), while Quebec will travel to Campbell River to face Slovakia (2 p.m. PST).
