Legionnaires Take Solid Win Against Preds
FEBRUARY 16, 2015

By Dan McCaffery

The Sarnia Legionnaires were clicking on all cylinders Sunday.

Coach Dan Rose's Western Jr. 'B' hockey club got goals from all four lines – and from the defence as well – on its way to an 8-2 win over the Lambton Shores Predators.

"We played well, we moved the puck well and our special teams did a great job,” Rose said. “Our PK (penalty kill) did well.”

In fact, Sarnia killed off all eight shorthanded situations it faced. The Legionnaires, meanwhile, scored three times on a dozen powerplays.

Rookie defenceman Cameron Clarke was the top gun for the Legion crew, picking up two goals and three assists for five points.

The line of Ryan Vendramin, Jordan Fogarty and Brandon Layman was on fire. Indeed, Vendramin had two goals and an assist, Layman had a goal and Fogarty had four assists.

Vendramin now has 26 goals on the campaign.

Cody Trowell got his team-leading 32nd of the season, while Hunter Tyczynski had his fourth, Captain Nathan Mater collected his eighth and Brandon Layman scored his seventh.

Riley Babkirk and Brendan Trottier had two assists each, with Mitch Read and Kyler Keating also getting helpers.

Preds goals were credited to Brendan Trottier and Drew Marlatt.

Sarnia goalie Andrew Masters kicked out 32 shots, including one on a breakaway, to earn his seventh win of the season.

Anthony Hurtubise took the loss, although he made 41 saves.

The Legionnaires are now 30-15-1 and need just one more point to wrap up third place in the nine-team Western Conference.

LaSalle, which sits in fourth, is four points back of the Sarnians.

The Legionnaires return to action Tuesday when they host the last place St. Marys Lincolns. Game time at the Brock Street barn is set for 7:10 p.m.
