Now That's Entertainment!

friday december 19, 2014


 


The 1,486 fans got their money's worth Thursday night at the Sarnia arena when the Sarnia Legionnaires took a 3 - 2 overtime win against the St. Thomas Stars in Greater Ontario Jr B hockey league action.

 

Trailing 2 - 1 heading into the final minute the Legionnaires kept the fans on the edge of their seats. With their goalie pulled for the extra man attacker pandemonium broke out when Cody Trowell scored the tying goal with just 2.1 seconds left on the clock.

 

The game went into overtime and pandemonium broke again when the Legionnaires scored at 1:27 to take win.  The record shows that Davis Boyer scored the goal but after the game coaching staff told the media it was actually Cameron Clark who scored the goal.


"I scored the first shot then for some reason the puck kept going and Davis turned and was celebrating and everyone was coming off the bench," Cameron Clarke said  "I passed it up to Davis right around the red line and he passed it on to Brandon Layman  and Layman made a nice backhand pass to me and I just put it over the goalie shoulder."

 

 

The scoring wasn't the only entertaining part of the game as both netminders made some outstanding saves including a game saver breakaway Cornel Felder made in overtime.

 

"Felder was awesome tonight he played really well."  Head Coach Dan Rose said "The shots that they got he made some really good saves and he was our player of the game. He made that save in overtime and they came back and scored that the difference in the game."

Sarnia outshot St. Thomas 34 - 32.  Dan Black made 31 saves for St. Thomas.

 

Leading up to the final PJ Vandervaart scored his first goal of the season in the first period and St. Thomas Jesse Anderson tied the game later in the period.  In the second Jordan Babb scored a power play goal for St. Thomas to take the 2 - 1 lead heading into the third.

 

 

"I thought we played well for the first 10 minutes of the game and then we got a little sloppy the second 10 minutes. We completely dominated on the five on five but we got into penalty trouble in the second period and it killed our momentum."
 

Sarnia went scoreless on three power play opportunities, St. Thomas scored once on seven opportunities.

 

Sarnia remains in second place behind Leamington with a record of 22-8-0.  They are back in action Saturday night in Lambton Shores (9-19-3) at 7:30 then on Sunday they take on the top team in Leamington against the Flyers (26-6-1) at 4:10 pm.


"Hopefully we'll have a full line up," Clarke said "It's a big one on Saturday but we want to win that game against Leamington to get closer to first place."
