Legionnaires Take a Home Opener Loss

September 18, 2015

Legionnaires attempted goal goes off the post

The Sarnia Legionnaires suffered a disappointing 3 - 2 loss at their home opener Thursday night against the Lambton Shores Predators in Greater Ontario Junior B  Hockey League action.

"The second and third period we played very well when you outshoot a team 39 - 21 obviously their goaltender stood on his head." Legionnaires head coach Mark Davis said after the game. "We probably took 25 shots and missed the net. I told everybody to be patient with this team because we got a lot of youth in there and a lot of guys that haven't played at this calibre of hockey."

Brett Storr scored Legionnaires first goal

The Predators took a two goal lead before Sarnia's defenceman Brett Storr scored the first Legionnaire's goal and his first of the season on the power play. 

Storr who played for the Chatham Maroons last season says he is happy to be in Sarnia.  Storr who is studying at Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton asked for the trade mainly due to the amount of driving to Chatham before and after the games.  "It's a lot better when you don't have to be driving 40 minutes and your not yawning to get to the rink and It's nice to be back with all my buddies here. Hopefully we can get some wins."

After a scoreless second period the Predators widened their lead in the third.  Sarnia fought back and with 1:40 seconds remaining Jacob Stos blasted one in to narrow the gap but the Predators held on to deny the Legionnaires the home opener win.

Scoring for the Predators in the win were Colin Burns, Ethan Sarfati (PP) and Andrew Kim.

Sarnia outshot the Predators 38 - 21. Anthony Hurtubise earned the win in net for the Predators and former Lambton Jr. Sting AAA Major Midget Shane Battler took the loss.

Sarnia went one for four on the power play and the Predators went one for three.

The Legionnaires are now 1-2 in the early season and are back in action on Thursday September 24th when they host St. Thomas with a 7:10 puck drop at the Sarnia Arena.

 "I'm not going to get excited about it we got things that we have to work on. There's a lot of good players in that room, it will just take us time."
