Press Release

The OJHL North Division All-Stars finished as the inaugural Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge runner-up after falling 5-1 to the QJAAAHL All-Stars.

The North didn't get off to the start they wanted, falling behind 1-0 just nine seconds into the 1st period on a goal by Samuel Aquin of the QJAAAHL. The North would outshoot Quebec the rest of the period, but were stoned by netminder Frederic Piche at every opportunity.

The 2nd period saw much of the same, except this time the 'Q' dominated the North for much of the period, outshooting them 19-6 and put three more goals, including two from Julien Corriveau, past North goaltender Jason Pucciarelli of the Newmarket Hurricanes. Score after two periods of play was 4-0 for Quebec.

The third period saw the two teams trade goals with Drake Caggiula of the Stouffville Spirit continuing his tremendous play by finally breaking Piche's shutout bid. Final score 5-1 for the QJAAAHL All-Stars, who become the first-ever Central Canada Cup champions.
