PATRIOTES TAKE WIN OVER UNDISCIPLINED GEE-GEES IN M-HOCKEY

OTTAWA, Ont. - The UQTR Patriotes had an easy win over an unusually undisciplined Ottawa Gee-Gee men's hockey team Tuesday night at the Sports Complex. Taking the lead early, the Patriotes scored three goals in the first period, eventually walking away with a 6-2 win.

The Gee-Gees struggled with penalty trouble all game, ending up with a combined 26 minutes of penalty time.

"That's not the way we want to play as a group, it's not the way we want to respond", said Gee-Gees head coach Dave Leger.

Due to the Gee-Gees unruly play, the Patriotes capitalized easily, scoring four of their six goals on power plays. The Patriotes also dominated the Gee-Gee zone throughout the game, outshooting Ottawa 41-17.

"Intimidation and indiscipline have never paid off and it didn't pay off for them today" added Patriotes head coach Jacques Laporte.

Scoring opened with less than five minutes gone in the first period by Patriote right wing and fourth year student Jonathan Boutin (La Pocatiere, Que.). Boutin would later add an assist and another goal before the game was through. Helping Boutin in the win for the Patriotes was centre and second year student Jean-Sébastien Breton (Pincourt, Que.), netting two goals as well in the first and third periods. Centres Alexandre Demers (Laurier-Station, Que.) and Francis Charland (Victoriaville, Que.) would also add goals for the Patriotes.

For the Gee-Gees, rookie Matt Methot (Ottawa, Ont.) scored his first goal in a regular season game as an Ottawa Gee-Gee on a breakaway goal. Taking a lead pass from teammate, and fellow rookie Sean Smyth (Clarence Creek, Ont.), Methot made things look easy putting the puck past Patriotes goaltender Michaël Dupont (Bienne, Switzerland). Second year player Ryne Gove (Cornwall, Ont.) would add the other goal for the Gee-Gees. Martin Bricault (Cap-Rouge, Que.) started in net for the Gee Gees, stopping 35 of 41 shots.

After Saturday's loss to Carleton, the Gee Gees are now 0-2-0 in regular season play. The Gee-Gees next game is Sat., Oct. 11, when they host the McGill Redmen at the Sports Complex.
