Legionnaires Win in LaSalle
FEBRUARY 19, 2015

By Dan McCaffery

Cody Trowell's great season continued in spectacular fashion Wednesday.

The big forward scored two goals – his 33rd and 34th of the campaign – to lead the Sarnia Legionnaires to a 6-3 win over the LaSalle Vipers.

The victory, which came right in the Essex County town, improved Sarnia's record to 32-15-1.

They have now won three in a row and six of their last seven.

The Legionnaires remained in third place, however, because the Chatham Maroons won Wednesday in London.

Sarnia trails the Maroons by a single point. But the Legion has just one game left in the regular schedule while Chatham has two.
Whatever happens in the standings, this has been a tremendous year for Trowell, who has 10 more goals than he scored all last winter.

Recalling his latest tallies, Trowell said, “The first was a nice feed from Davis Boyer. I was driving to the net and Davis made a nice, patient play. I shot it in high on the glove side from the slot.”

On his second tally, Trowell stripped the puck from a Vipers defender and scored on a wrap-around play.

Single Legionnaire tallies went to Ryan Vendramin (with his 29th), Ryan Trottier (his 12th), Jay Clarke (his 9th) and Bobby King with his second.

Rearguard Connor Andersen and forward Davis Boyer had two assists apiece. Single helpers went to Cameron Clarke, Riley Babkirk, Brandon Layman and Jake O'Donnell.

Andrew Masters made 42 saves – including all 17 he faced in the first period – to register his sixth win since joining the Legionnaires last month. He also had two wins earlier in the season while toiling for the last place St. Marys Lincolns.

Paolo Battisti faced 34 shots in the LaSalle cage.

Vipers goals were credited to Brett Primeau, Korey Morgan and Connor Rosassen.

The Legionnaires close out their regular schedule tonight (Thursday, Feb. 19) with a home game against the Lambton Shores Predators. The puck drop is set for 7:10 p.m.
