Bernier scores lone goal in battle with the Titan

Gabriel Bernier scored the only goal for the Wildcats in a 4-1 loss to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Saturday at Avenir Centre.

It came halfway through the first period and opened the scoring in the game.

A Titan pass to the left point in the Moncton zone hopped over the stick of the defenceman, sending Bernier on a long breakaway.

The 19-year-old rookie winger whistled a wrist shot over the glove of Acadie-Bathurst goalie Jan Bednar to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead.

The visitors tied the game with five-and-a-half minutes to go in the second period. The game stayed 1-1 through two periods.

The Titan netted the eventual winner four minutes into the third and added two goals, ten seconds apart, with under four minutes to go.

Goalie Vincent Filion turned aside 25 shots in a losing cause. He was named second star.

Captain Jacob Hudson had his points streak come to an end at nine games.
