Legionnaires Lost in Lambton Shores

The Lambton Shores Predators embarrassed the Sarnia Legionnaires 5-2 Saturday in a Western Jr. 'B' hockey game played at Forest.

"That was our worst game of the year, we stunk from start to finish, head coach Dan Rose said afterward.

It was the first of five consecutive road games for the Legionnaires.

The Sarnians, who were outshot 48-29, now have a 22-9 won-lost record. They are in second place in the standings, five points ahead of third ranked Chatham.

Davis Boyer was one of the few Legionnaires who played a good game, scoring twice to bring his total for the campaign up to 23.

Ryan Trottier drew assists on both tallies. On the first, he won a battle for puck possession at the blueline before sending a cross-ice pass to Boyer, who tapped it home.

Ryan Vendramin almost made it 2-0 before the first period was over, ringing a hard drive off the goal post.

In the second period, with the score tied at one apiece, Trottier sent a passout from behind the Preds net to Boyer, who scored from the slot on a low backhander.

Cody Trowell also had an assist on the play.

But it was all Lambton Shores after that.

Colin Burns, Ethan Safati, Brett Corrigan, Andrew Kim and Drew Marlatt were the marksmen for the winners.

Sarnia took a number of needless penalties. In fact, the home team had seven power-play opportunities, compared to just two for the visitors.

Predators Goalie Andrew Harriman-Duke got the win.

Hunter Johnson and Cornel Felder split the Legionnaires goaltending duites, with Johnson being tagged with the loss.

Sarnia returns to action Sunday when they travel to Leamington to face they first place Flyers.
