Quebec snaps Maineiacs win streak at 10 games

The Lewiston Maineiacs saw their 10-game winning streak come to an end of Sunday afternoon against the Quebec Remparts, 4-2, in the third and final game of a three in three stretch.

Quebec scored four unanswered goals from four different players after Lewiston took a 1-0 lead.

Stefan Fournier scored his second goal in as many games at 4:04 of the first period to give the Maineiacs the early lead. Samuel Henley and Antoine Houde-Caron each chipped in with an assist on the play.

The 1-0 lead wouldn’t hold, however, as Martine Lefebvre and the Remparts came storming back to tie it just over two minutes later. The home team wasn’t done yet as they scored again at 18:52 with a power play goal from Frederick Roy to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

Quebec’s power play unit was able to solve Lewiston goaltender Tyler Piercy and his penalty kill unit yet again at 12:29 of the second period. Joel Champagne was the culprit, netting his 14th goal of the season to put Quebec up, 3-1.

Ryan Bourque put away the fourth and final Quebec goal at 16:50 with an unassisted effort to extend his team’s advantage to three.

It appeared as though Lewiston may make a run, as they cut the Quebec lead in half with 22 seconds remaining in the second thanks to Samuel Carrier’s sixth goal up the season. However, both teams skated to a scoreless third period to effectively put an end to the Maineiacs 10-game winning streak.

Louis Domingue picked up the win in net for the Remparts as he made 22 saves on 24 shots. Meanwhile, Piercy’s 25-save effort at the other end wasn’t enough to lift Lewiston to win their 11th consecutive win.
