Team Ontario fell short at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge and will not compete for a medal after falling 2-1 to the host Team Quebec on Wednesday night in Drummondville.

Ontario finishes the Group B round-robin in third place with seven points and a 2-1-1 record.  With only the top two teams in each Group advancing to the Semi-Finals, Ontario will play Team Pacific for fifth place Thursday afternoon at 1:30 pm.

Brett Hargrave (Sarnia Sting) opened the scoring for Ontario at 3:48 with Damian Bourne (Mississauga Steelheads) picking up the assist.

Carl Neill (Sherbrooke Phoenix) and Loïk Lévéille (Baie-Comeau Drakkar) scored power-play goals 96 seconds apart in the opening minutes of the second period to lead Quebec to the win.

Julio Billia (Chicoutimi Sagueneens) made 40 saves, including all 17 shots he faced in the third period.

Guelph Storm prospect Matthew Mancina made 29 saves despite the loss.

This marks the first time in five years that Ontario will not earn a medal after winning Gold in 2008, 2009, and 2011, along with Silver in 2010, and Bronze last year in Windsor.
