andrew brethauer February 4th, 2012

Leamington, ON - The Sarnia Legionnaires have won their second in as many games and continue to sit in first place in the Western Conference after a 6-5 victory over the Leamington Flyers Saturday night in Junior B hockey.

Jesse Drydak had a productive night for the Legionnaires, scoring four of their six goals in the victory. His first was the first of the game to give the Legionnaires a 1-0 lead, but the Flyers would be the ones to exit the period with the lead. Cheyne Matheson would tie the game, and with 15 seconds remaining, Nicholas Nicodemo would score short handed to put the Flyers ahead 2-1 after twenty minutes.

In the second, Drydak would get his second of the game to tie the game at 2-2, but the Flyers again would score while short handed, as Jared Dennis put Leamington back in front.

Drydak would tie the game up again on the power play, scoring his third of the night, and Shawn Waldie would respond with his own short handed goal in the middle of the period to give the Legionnaires the lead heading out of the second period.

In the third, Leamington would again tie it back up, as Tyler Quigley would knot the game at 4-4, but Drydak would get his fourth of the game forty seconds later, putting Sarnia back on top. Derek D'Andrea would give Sarnia a two goal lead with a quick goal soon after.

Alex Seguin would cut the lead in half with half the period to go, but the Legionnaires would be able to hold off any comeback, earning the two points for the victory.

Kyle Washer got the start in net making 46 saves, as Sarnia was out shot 51-34.

Sarnia will have a week off and play LaSalle on Saturday night at home, then head to St. Thomas for a game on Sunday night.
