Legionnaires Keep Fans on Edge

friday november 21, 2014

Greater Ontario Jr B Hockey

It was a bit of a nail biter at the end as the Legionnaires had a  5 - 1 lead heading into the third and the Strathroy Rockets game back and score three in the final period. The Legionnaires held on and took the win with a final score of 5-4.

Sarnia's Ryan Vendramin started things off at 8:28 in the first when he skated in behind and picked up the loose puck that got away from Brandon Layman and put it in the side of the net.

Second goal was scored when the puck was passed back to Kyler Keating and he blasted it in from the blueline.

In the Second period Strathroy added their first at 4:40 then starting at 9:49 the Legionnaires added 3 goals in just under two minutes.  Cody Trowell, Brandon Layman and Brad Campbell each scored.

Third period it was all Rockets adding 3 goals, two power play and one unassisted by Sturart King, Eddie Schulz and Nick Griffin.

Even with their netminder out of the net the Rockets couldn't tie things up and the Legionnaires came up with the much needed win.

Legionnaires outshot the Rockets 30 - 27.  Hunter Johnson earned the win in net for the Legionnaires making 23 saves.  Mat Ouellett and Dane Gubbels shared the duties in the loss for the Rockets.

Sarnia went scoreless on two power play opportunities, Strathroy went two for five.

In the standings race the Legionnaires (17-6-0) remains in second spot as the first place Leamington Flyers (18-5-0) defeated St. Thomas 4-1 last night.  Chatham (15-6-1)  is in third place 3 points behind Sarnia. Sarnia has one game in hand.

With the standings race so close the next couple of games will put the Legionnaires to test as they travel to Leamington on Sunday for a 4:10 puck drop then return home next Thursday (Nov 27) to face Chatham at 7:10 at the Sarnia Arena.
