Zach O'Brien scored twice Sunday as the Acadie-Bathurst Titan defeated the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5-2 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The 20-year-old forward picked up the game's first star and he now has eight goals and 16 points in eight games to leads his club in scoring.

Sean Girard, Adam Zboril and Alexandre Gosselin also scored for the Titan (5-4-2) while Christophe Lalancette chipped in with two assists.

Kyle Farrell and Charles Guevremont replied for the Screaming Eagles (2-6-3), who have dropped three straight.

Jacob Brennan made 25 saves for the win as Philippe Trudeau turned aside 26 shots in a losing effort.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding it, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
