Justin Chaumont, Joshua Renaud and Nathan Sauvé were especially effective in applying offensive pressure on the Eagles. Jérémy Marcotte and Zachary Bigras also had good scoring chances, but were unable to get the go-ahead goal for their team before the end of the period.
After a scoreless first period, the floodgates opened in the second and the Cougars started piling up goals. The home team completely dominated the rest of the game and the Jets were unable to put up a fight. The Cougars scored five goals in the second period before adding another six goals in the third, crushing the Jets 11-1 in the end. Joshua Renaud scored three goals and an assist and Jérémy Marcotte also scored a hat trick in the victory. Simon Levac scored a goal and got three assists, while Justin Chaumont and Nicholas Campbell got three assists each.
