Legionnaires Out of Sync
Wednesday October 29, 2014



"Were in a bit of a hole right now." Head Coach Dan Rose said after his team lost 7 - 2  to the Leamington Flyers on Tuesday night in Sarnia.

"There are a lot more positive things happening out there tonight than there was in Chatham the other night." said Rose referring to the 8-2 loss on Sunday in Chatham.  "We had some bad bounces and they had a couple weird goals. But in general the kids competed a lot harder tonight than they did in Chatham the other night and that's a good thing to see. "


Sarnia started the night off on a positive note scoring the first goal at 4:51 in the first period by Brandon Layman with Jake O'Donnell earning the assist.  From that point on it was downhill as Leamington scored three goals in the first and added two in the second and two more in the third. 

Sarnia second goal was scored in the second period when Riley Roberts fired one in from a sharp angle from the side.  Cody Trowell earned the assist on the play.



Tyler Duarte scored two for the Flyers with singles by Kyle Quick, Matthew Opblinger, Chirs Scott, Kyle Perkowski and Cale Phibbs.

Leamington outshot the Legionnaires 40 - 27.  Goaltender Cornel Felder suffered the loss, Trevor Wheaton picked up the win.


Both sides went scoreless on the power play. Sarnia took a total of six minutes in penalty time on three infractions.  Leamington took four minutes on two infractions.


After starting the season with thirteen straight wins the team is in a slump after taking their third loss after playing their third game in four nights.



The team was missing three players, Nathan Mater who received a suspension in Strathroy, Jordan Fogarty and Ryan Trottier both out with injuries.


"With everybody out we got one guy off each line out." Rose said "We had to mix and match and it's just not working. We'll fight through it, once we get everybody in the line up we'll be fine but right now everybody's out of sync."

Mater will be back in the line up for Thursday night's game when Sarnia host St. Thomas. 

"We'll battle through it. They're a great group of kids and they don't' like losing and they got a lot of pride, they'll fight their way through it."
