Saturday evening, December 2, the Vankleek Hill Junior Cougars hosted the Papineau Vikings and came out flat. The Vikings were determined to put on a show and led 5-1 at the end of the first period. The lone Cougar goal was scored by Riley Suave, with Marc-Antoine Doyon getting the helper. The Vikings scored two more in the second to bring the lead to 7-1. The Cougars notched up their play in the third and managed to get another goal, scored by Nikolas Ayotte with help from Riley Sauve, but the Vikings goaltender shut the door after that and the Cougars came up short 7-2.
Sunday afternoon they travelled to Morrisburg to take on the Lions and it was a motivated team which took to the ice. Ryan Allen got the party started by scoring a power play goal in the first period and then scoring four more goals and picking up an assist for a total of six points. The Cougars went on to win 8-4 with goals also scored by Tyler Dopelhamer, Riley Sauve (short-handed) and Charles Doyon (power play).
