STRATHROY – Ryan Vendramin led the Sarnia Legionnaires to a 4-1 win over the Strathroy Rockets Saturday.

With the win, the Sarnians improved their record to 27-14-1. And that leaves them in third place in the Western Jr. 'B' hockey standings, three points ahead of fourth ranked LaSalle and three behind second place Chatham.

Vendramin exploded for two goals and an assist in the first period to put the visitors ahead 3-0 going into the intermission.

He now has 21 goals and 21 assists for 42 points in just 30 games.

"Vendy's a smart player,” head coach Dan Rose commented afterward.

He also had praise for Vendramin's linemates, Jordan Fogarty and Brandon Layman.

Fogarty, who has been on fire of late, collected a goal and an assist, giving him 11 points in his last five games.

Laymen, a defensive forward, set up two goals, bringing his points total to 17.

Rose said his team forechecked hard all night.

"The boys played really well,” he said. “They bounced back (from a poor performance two nights earlier against LaSalle). “The boys had a meeting before the game” to discuss ways to improve their game.

Cody Trowell had Sarnia's other tally, giving him a team-leading total of 30.

Davis Boyer had Sarnia's other assist.

Nick Boyer spoiled goalie Andrew Masters' shutout bid, scoring the lone Strathroy goal.

The Rockets outshot Sarnia 41-39.

The Legionnaires return to action next Thursday when they host the London Nationals.

Game time at the Brock Street barn is set for 7:10 p.m.
