The Streak Has Ended
Sunday October 26, 2014


The Sarnia Legionnaires anticipated 14 game record was denied Saturday night in Strathroy after the Rockets shut the door and took a 3 - 2 win.


"You know we were going to lose eventfully and it was probably going to be on the road." Head Coach Dan Rose said "Give them credit they worked hard all night long and we didn't match them stride for stride."



Penalties were lopsided and a factor in this outcome as Sarnia was handed a total of twenty-eight minutes on sixteen infractions.  For the home team the Rockets were penalized a total of ten minutes on five infractions.

"We had to kill penalties all night long." said Rose  "We got to be a little bit more disciplined but you know what, at the same time we are one of the least penalized teams in the league and all of a sudden tonight we're the most penalized team."

Despite having thirteen opportunities Strathroy scored only two power play goals.  Sarnia scored once on five opportunities.



Strathroy scored the lone goal in the first period on a power play by Brett Dalton.  Dalton scored a second power play goal in the second and Nick Griffin scored early in the third.

For the Legionnaires in the second period on a power play Sam McCormack scored his second goal of the season a rocket launcher from the blue line.  Cody Trowell added his 14th of the season midway in the third.  Kyler Keating, Davis Boyer and Riley Babkirk picked up one single points on assists.

Penalties handed out in the last minute in the game denied Sarnia's attempt to tie and the game ended with Sarnia's win streak ending at thirteen.

Shots on goal recorded shows Strathroy 52 - Sarnia 33.



Cornel Felder who made many timely saves in net for the Legionnaires turned away 49 shots.  Mat Ouellet made 31 saves for Strathroy.


"Our goaltender played well.  They really worked hard tonight and they won last night so they were pumped. It's their barn and it's hard to win here, I give them credit they outworked us tonight." Rose said
Sarnia's record is now 13 - 1 in the Greater Ontario Jr. B Hockey League.
Legionnaires look to begin another win streak in Chatham tonight.



"It's disappointing that we lost but at the same time its one timely step backwards but we'll move forward." Rose said "We have a couple of tough games coming up and we'll be shorthanded."


After the dust settled three Legionnaires PJ Vandervaart, Tyler Prong and Captain Nathan Mater were handed GM's and it's expected that they will not be in today's game in Chatham.

Also not playing is Ryan Trottier and Jorday Fogarty, both out with injuries.



Sunday's game in Chatham begins at 7:00 pm.  The Legionnaires return home on Tuesday October 28th at 7:10 when they face off against Leamington.
