In the image of their season, the Capitals have lost their last game local, on Thursday evening. Reverse side of a 4-1 defeat to the Eagles of Trois-Rivières, who have dominated their neighbours as ever this summer.

The Trifluviens have beaten the cousins of Quebec 16 times on 22, 2019. During this awful campaign, it was the opponent against which the Capitals have been more misery. Or how to turn the iron in the wound.

“It was not in the coup against them this year, as they did against us the past years”, was able to see the manager of the losers, Patrick Scalabrini, between an autograph and a handshake, and supporters descended to greet their favorites on the field for one last time.

“But tonight, it was screwed up opportunities indecent in the beginning of the meeting. When you do it, it’s rare that you win. Our attack has nothing generated. I would have at least wanted that one gives a better show,” regretted Scalabrini, in which the troops suffered a sixth straight defeat.

In the camp winner, the chief instructor of T. J. Stanton, a former Capitals, was pride in that other gain. “This year, I asked my players to embrace the rivalry with Quebec, which is very real. Despite the card-final, several of these matches were very hotly contested,” pointed out one who has seen its protected banging nine circuits in the last series of three tranches, two of which Thursday, Juan Kelly and Taylor Brennan.

Still four games to the Capitals, in Ottawa, until Monday. The two teams the capitals are eliminated. Scalabrini’s dream already to its alignment next year, for “do not revive a season like that”.

On the other hand, the Eagles are now preparing for the series by welcoming the Jackals in New Jersey to Trois-Rivières for the weekend of Labor day. The two teams will rendezvous in the first elimination round, which will begin in Little Falls.

Less than 120 000 entries

Despite the worst season of their history in the field, and the Capitals have drawn better crowds than last year with an average of 2480 lovers by appointment local, compared to 2386 in 2018. A total of 119 060 people have passed through the turnstiles of the stadium Victoria park this summer, of which 3777 for goodbye Thursday night.

However, a first sub 120 000 in 20 years, since the 110 559 entries from the inaugural season in 1999, as the Capitals were offered last year, five days of plus — 53 compared to 48 this year.

Named the outstanding player of the season in the Capitals, T. J. White has played in spite of ribs sore, while Jhalan Jackson took a leave of absence because of a wrist injury.

The pitcher of the year is Scott Richmond, exchanged the previous day in the atlantic League; Yordan Manduley, author of his first circuit of the season, was the best defensive player; Jonathan de Marte rookie par excellence; Dany Paradis-Giroux, has most worked with the community.
