Notre Dame to play in Telus Cup final after 6-4 win over Laval-Bourassa

  • Print

SELKIRK, Man. - The Notre Dame Hounds are off to the gold-medal game at the national midget AAA championship for the first time in 22 years.

Down 4-3 with time running out in the third period, the Hounds scored three unanswered goals to beat the Rousseau Sports de Laval-Bourassa 6-4 in the Telus Cup semifinal Saturday.

Hounds defenceman Jesse Pauls tied the game on a power play with 3:45 to go and Lucas Froese gave them the lead 1:24 later. Zach Hodder added an empty-net goal for the Hounds, who will face the Calgary Buffaloes in Sunday's gold-medal game.

Notre Dame hasn't been to the final since 1987, when it lost 6-2 to Riverains du Richelieu.

Earlier Saturday, the Buffaloes defeated the Winnipeg Thunder 7-0 to advance to the final.

Undefeated in round robin play, the Hounds looked to have the game in hand after Bryce Milson scored twice in the first period and Pat McGillis gave them a 3-1 lead early in the second.

But goals from Eliezer Sherbatov and Alexandre Lavoie pulled Laval-Bourassa even, and Sherbatov took advantage of a sloppy Notre Dame line change to give Laval-Bourassa its first lead at 4-3 with just six minutes to go, setting the stage for the Hounds' comeback.

Thomas Martin scored the other goal for Laval-Bourassa.

In the other semifinal, Calgary scored four goals in the third period to rout the Thunder.

Dylan Nowakowski scored twice and Drydn Dow, Greg Lamoureux, Joel Lowry, Doug Jones, and Cody Irving each added one for Calgary.

Calgary goaltender Sam Brittain made 38 saves for the shutout, while at the other end Jason Kasdorf and Brett Gagnon combined for 32 saves.
