Legionnaires Slow Start Big Win
FEBRUARY 17, 2015


By Dan McCaffery

 


 

The Sarnia Legionnaires won for the fifth time in six games Tuesday, thumping the St. Marys Lincolns 4-1.
 

With the victory the Legionnaires moved within a single point of the Chatham Maroons in the Western Jr. 'B' hockey standings.
 

Chatham, which has a game in hand on Sarnia, was upset 7-5 Tuesday by the Lambton Shores Predators.
 

For awhile it looked as if the Legion crew would have its hands full with the Lincs. In fact, the last place St. Marys club led 1-0 after the first period, thanks to a goal by Brent House.

 


 

But Sarnia stormed back in the middle frame, outshooting the Stone Town team 23-7 and outscoring it 3-0.
 

Captain Nathan Mater started the onslaught, charging into the St. Marys zone right from the opening faceoff before setting up Ryan Trottier for his 11th goal of the campaign.
 

Hunter Tyczynski scored the winner not long after that, blinking the red light as he was falling to his knees. Tyczynski, who missed most of the season with an injury, now has five goals to his credit. Tyler Longo and Cameron Clarke drew helpers on the play.

 

 

The prettiest goal of the game was scored by Ryan Vendramin, who finished off a nifty tick-tack-toe play with Brandon Layman.
 

In the final stanza Vendramin struck again, rifling a nice pass from Longo into the Lincs net for his second of the game and 28th of the season.

Vendramin now has as many goals as he scored all of last year, despite the fact that he missed the first 11 games of the season.

 


 

Cornel Felder picked up the win, kicking out 33 shots. The rookie goalie now has 11 wins to his credit.
 

The Legionnaires fired 60 shots on goal.
 

Sarnia returns to action tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 18) when it travels to LaSalle.
 

The club closes out the regular season Thursday with a home game against Lambton Shores. Game time at Sarnia Arena is set for 7:10 p.m.
