The speedy Julien Corriveau opened the scoring for Cornwall, moments after the River Kings killed off a lengthy 5-on-3 powerplay to start the game. Corriveau’s wrist shot from the slot at 3:43 squeezed through the legs of Cool FM goaltender Jeremy Duchene.
Then, Dominic Chiasson showed great patience, giving the Kings a 2-0 lead with 2:19 remaining in the first. With Duchene falling to the ice, Chiasson outwaited the goaltender and lifted the puck over his glove.
Just 12 seconds into the second, Francis Lessard took a feed from Nick Pitsikoulis and backhanded a shot past Duchene.
Fabien Laniel beat Kings goaltender Loic Lacasse up high at 11:07 of the second, converting on a nice cross-ice pass by David Starenky. Then with Lacasse down and out, Cool FM captain Jean-Philippe Paré slid the puck into an open net at 17:31 of the second.
Moments later, Sasha Pokulok regained the momentum for Cornwall with a beautiful goal. The smooth-skating defenceman circled the net then banked a wrist shot off the post and in with 1:12 to go in the second.
Cornwall outshot Saint-Georges 35-23 on the afternoon. The announced stars were Corriveau (first), sparkplug Anthony Pittarelli (second) and Lessard.
