Will Labonte scored in the fifth round of the shootout and Jeremy Serré posted the shutout as the Confederation Chargers captured the Knights Invitational Boys High School Hockey Tournament with a 1-0 win over the Franco Cité Patriotes.

Franco Cité advanced to the championship affair after winning a shootout of their own, edging the Lockerby Vikings 3-2 earlier in the day.

Nicolas Gerrard scored the game-winning goal, with Jean Raymond and Scott Poulin also finding the back of the net for the winners in regulation time.

Josh Favaro and Brody Lingard answered for the Vikes, who were denied the chance to extend the shootout after goaltender Chase Dowdall came through with a spectacular shootout save on Tristan Tulini, extending the goal stick back in desperation after having been beaten cleanly on a nifty deke.

Confederation also survived a close semifinal encounter, taming the St. Benedict Bears 3-2 courtesy of goals from Carter Hanson, Brett Mackinnon and Andrew Mackinnon. Brendan Sullivan handled all of the offence for St. Benedict, scoring twice.

In the Division B final, Keegan Moore scored on the power play with 3:43 to play, lifting the Lo-Ellen Park Knights past the Lively Hawks 5-4. Pierce Wallingford paced the offence with a two-goal effort, with Nick Zacharuk and Andrew Denniston scoring once each for the Knights.

Cameron Marshall and Mitchell Mousseau countered with two goals apiece for the Hawks as the final couple of weeks of SDSSAA regular season play resume with the end of the exam break.

Two games are on the schedule for Monday night at Carmichael as the Manitoulin Mustangs pay a visit to the Lasalle Lancers, while the Horizon Aigles and St. Benedict Bears close out the evening double-header with an 8:45 p.m. puck drop.
