Titans win a barnburner 8-7 over Pirates

What a game !

A Pirates vs Titans game that we will remember for a little while. With more ups and downs than a roller coaster ride had the Titans win 8-7 at the Centre in front of a packed house. The game was filled with emotion on both sides as the Titans led 3-1 after the first period and 6-4 after the second. At one point in the second the Titans led 6-1 but the Pirates scored three unanswered goals while both teams were playing 3 on 3.
The Pirates made it a one goal game early in the final period at 6-5. But Zacharie Maheu’s power play goal restored a 2 goal cushion at 7-5. But less than 2 minutes later Ville-Marie would respond to make it 7-6. But then it was Maheu once more finding the back of the net on a 3 way passing play with his linemates Ethier & Turcotte, 8-6 with a little more than 5 minutes to play. Then while shorthanded the Pirates got to within one again with a little more than 2 minutes left. The Pirates pulled their goalie for an extra attacker but the Titans held the fort for the 8-7 victory over their Northern rivals. Marc-Antoine Turcotte had 2g-4a and sits first in the scoring race with 102 points. Zacharie Maheu had 2g-2a and holds down second place with 86 points. Yannick Ethier had 2 assists today and he’s third in scoring with 79 points. Other goal scorers were Nicolas Tremblay, Misha Akatnov, Maxime Durocher and Brady Lacharity. Aleck Forcier and William Godbout both had 2 assists. Shots were 61-58 Titans. Bobby Cloutier got the W in goal.
With their win the Titans improve their record to 22-5-1 good for 45 points and they sit in top spot not only in the North division but overall in the league. The Titans have 2 games remaining before the holiday break. A road trip to Meaford on Thursday December 12th and then return home to finish off 2019 playing against the same Meaford team on Friday December the 13th.
