Don’t look now, but the Lac St. Louis Lions are in first place in the Quebec Midget AAA League.

 Surprised?

Don’t be.

The underdog Lions are making believers out of doubters this season with some solid play at both ends of the rink, and between the pipes.

The result is that Jon Goyens’ squad has climbed into a first-place tie with the Chateauguay Grenadiers in the five-team Reebok Division. Both teams have 25 points, but the Lions have two games in hand on the Grenadiers.

The Lions added two more notches to the win column last week, beating the Trois Rivières Estacades 4-1 on Friday, and then following it up the next day with a 5-4 win over Amos Forestiers.

Vimal Sukumaran, with his team-leading 15th goal, Vincent Gavrielatos, Malik Johnson and Vincent Watt scored for the Lions on Friday.

Gavrielatos, Johnson, Michel Cohen, Max Fortier and Brandon Kosik scored against Amos.

The Lions face the Intrepide inGatineauon Wednesday night.

 This Sunday, the Lions play host to the Antoine Girard Gaulois in the 4-Glaces Pierrefonds Sportplexe.

 Four Lions rookies have been selected to next month’s Reebok Challenge for 15 year old midget AAA players.

 Goalie James Povall, defenceman Taylor Ford and forwards Max Fortier and Ty Fournier got the nod.
