The Remparts completely dominated a duel of powerhouses in the QMJHL with a 6-2 victory at the hands of the Sherbrooke Phoenix.
Quebec fired an impressive total of 47 shots on net and conceded only 17 shots to Sherbrooke.
After letting the Phoenix open the scoring in the first period thanks to a goal from Xavier Parent, the Remparts rebounded with four unanswered goals, including three in the second period.
Zachary Bolduc first put the Remparts on the board, before seeing his teammate Evan Nause score the first of two goals during this sequence. Théo Rochette also hit the target between Nause’s two goals.
Bolduc also finished the game with three points. He has 41 goals and 79 points in 53 games this year.
Parent returned to the charge in the third period. His 42nd goal of the season made it 4-2, but Quebec scored two more to put the game out of reach for Sherbrooke.
Mikael Huchette and James Malatesta scored the last two goals for the Remparts.
The Remparts have been on a strong streak recently with eight consecutive wins. They scored 43 goals during that streak.
Canadian prospect Joshua Roy was cleared from the scoresheet.

Melanson takes charge of the Wildcats
Another game, another good offensive performance for Habs prospect Riley Kidney. He had two assists, his teammate Jacob Melanson scored three goals and the Acadie-Bathurst Titan beat the Moncton Wildcats 5-1.
With two points on Sunday, Kidney has now amassed 29 points in his last 15 games, just shy of two points per game.
He has 84 points in 54 games this season.
Although he did well, it wasn’t Kidney who had his team’s best offensive performance. Jacob Melanson finished the game with four points, including a hat trick.
It was he who scored the first three goals of the match. Melanson opened the scoring midway through the first period, before adding two more goals before the end of the first period.
Brooklyn Kalmikov scored in the second period for Moncton, but the Titan responded in the third period with goals from Carter Ansems and Marc-André Gaudet.
Jan Bednar did well in goal for the Titan with 23 saves.
The Titan have won two of their three games against the Wildcats in the last 48 hours.
