Quebec City, QC, Canada (4E Sports) - Jerome Verrier's two goals powered the Quebec Remparts in crushing the Rimouski Oceanic, 5-2 Thursday at Pepsi Colisee in the tiebreaker game.

Zachary Fucale made 30 saves for the Remparts in the Memorial Cup tilt.

With the score at 2-all, Adam Erne's tip in into an empty net at 16:54 of the second gave the Remparts a 3-2 lead. Then with 40.3 seconds remaining in the second Verrier tipped Massimo Carozza's pass out of the left corner to extend the Remparts lead to 4-2.

After a save by Oceanic goalie Philippe Desrosiers , Marc-Olivier Roy tapped the puck between his feet into the net after to make it 5-2 at 11:31 of the third.

Verrier's power-play goal at 17:19 of the first put the Remparts up 1-0.

Samuel Morin tied the game with a slap shot from the right circle for a power-play goal at 2:32 of the second.

Anthony Duclair's snap shot gave the Remparts a 2-1 lead at 3:58 of the second before Jeremy Lepine scored off a turnover by the Remparts to tie the game 2-2 at 16:07 of the second.

Desrosiers finished with 26 saves.

The Remparts play the Western Hockey League champion Kelowna Rockets in the semifinals Friday. The winner of that game will play the Oshawa Generals in the championship game Sunday.
