Mark Hillier scored two goals — including the eventual game-winning marker on a goal where he scored into a yawning cage after winning a foot race with the opposing goalie — to lead Corner Brook to a 4-2 victory over Portugal Cove-St. Phillips Sunday morning.
Keegan Piercey and Jacob Evoy also scored for the winning side on a bright
day with a light breeze blowing around at Wellington Street Sports Complex.
Corner Brook 2 claimed gold in B division, in a showdown played at the Ambrose O’Reilly Memorial Field, with a 5-2 decision over Conception Bay South.
Logan Rafferty was the man of the hour for the city boys with a three-goal performance, while benchmate Brady Taylor scored twice in the battle for B gold.
The battle for the C division crown proved to be the most entertaining of the gold-medal games as Labrador West eked out a 3-1 win over CBN Lightning with Ayo Owolabi getting the upper hand in the goaltending duel against Ethan Brushett.
Matthew Ryan, Reggie Pike and Elisha Smith scored for Labrador West in the shootout.
Zachary Crane was the lone marksman for the Lightning in the shootout.
The D division title was claimed by Exploit’s Valley after a 3-2 victory over Happy Valley Goose Bay.
Colin O’Driscoll had a two-goal outing for the winning side, while Amie Bowles added the other marker to the scoresheet.
Keaton Barry scored both goals for the opposing side.
