Fans from across the country attended the 10 day long festivities, including local Pats fan James Zilinski.
Despite being disappointed about the loss, he was happy about how the Pats performed.
“It was a great effort,” he said. “But, you always hope for better.”
On the other hand, Bathurst native Todd Pettigrew flew in to see the Titan play and couldn’t have been happier with the final result.
“The boys worked hard all year,” he noted. “It’s great for our region, they had great support by the residents of our region.”
The 101st Memorial Cup Tournament makes it way east in 2019, where the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads will be the hosts and undoubtedly look to retain their status as the champions of junior hockey.
