Legionnaires Stopped by St. Marys
friday december 20, 2013


"They shot pucks and they went in.  We shot pucks and they didn't go in."  simply put by Legionnaires Head Coach Dan Rose after his team took a 5 - 1 loss on Thursday night at home against the St. Marys Lincolns.  The Lincolns are in last place in the Greater Ontario Jr B Hockey League and this was their 4th win of the season.


Sarnia opened the game with a quick goal just :36 seconds off the faceoff when Ryan Vendramin passed it out front to Cody Trowell who had a wide open net and scored.  Riley Babkirk also received an assist on the play.



That was the only goal Sarnia would get.

"We had 36 shots on net and we scored one." Rose said  "Their goalie came up with some unbelievable saves."


St. Mary's Mike Siddall scored St. Marys first goal a minute and six seconds after Sarnia's goal and  the score remained 1 - 1 after the first period. 


Late in the second Mitch Reed scored the only goal in the period that gave the Lincolns the 2 - 1 edge heading into the third.  At 9:51 the Lincolns scored the first of 3 goals in the final period that gave the Lincolns their 4th win of the season.  Max Naus, Ben Kirwin (PP) and Colin Nancekivell scored for St. Marys.


"We had 36 shots on net and we scored one." Rose said  "Their goalie came up with some unbelievable saves."



Lincolns goaltender Andrews Masters, a call up from Paris Mounties Jr. C team where he recorded six shut outs made 35 saves in the game.  This was his 3rd Jr. B game and he is now 2 -1.

"He robbed (Josh) Kestner on that shorthanded we just couldn't get any momentum going." Rose said


Braden Palocz stopped 18 of 23 shots made by the Lincolns.


Sarnia went scoreless on three power play opportunities, St. Marys scored once on four.


Sarnia remains in 6th place in the Western Conference with a record of 17-14. 


The Legionnaires have two road games remaining before the Christmas break.  On Saturday Dec 21 they travel to Strathroy and the next day in Leamington.
