The Wild answered back with two goals off the sticks of veteran forwards Dixon MacLeod and Landon Clow to make it a 3-2 game at 11:45 of the third period, but Laval-Montreal scored two late goals to put the game out of reach.
MacLeod’s goal was unassisted and Sam MacNeill assisted on Clow’s tally.
Jonah Arbing turned in a 41-save effort in goal for the Wild, members of the New Brunswick/P.E.I. Major Midget Hockey League.
