andrew brethauer February 8th, 2012

London, ON - With their fifth win in a row, their longest winning streak all season, the Lambton Shores Predators move into a playoff spot with five games left to play. The Predators defeated London Wednesday 6-4.

Lambton Shores opened the scoring in the first two minutes of the game as Cale Duberry got the Predators off to a quick start. A late period goal by Derek Todosichuk would tie the game with less then a minute remaining in the first.

In the second, the Predators would come out quickly again, only this time scoring twice in the first minute and a half. Corey Pawley would score 31 seconds into the period, followed by Ryan Rontondi a minute later for a 3-1 Predators lead. Rontondi would add his second of the game minutes later, followed by London's Aaron Dartch cutting the lead in half.

Adam Arseneault would score nearing the end of the period, as the Predators took a 5-2 lead into the third period.

Duberry would pick up his second of the game as the Predators again score in the first minute of play for a 6-2 lead. Noah Schwartz and Aaron Dartch would add two goals for the Nationals a minute and 15 seconds a part, but that would be as close as they would come in the 6-4 final.

Justin Tugwell got the start and made 28 saves for his 8th win of the season.

Lambton Shores now is tied in points with Chatham for the final playoff spot, but with more wins, they take control of 8th place. The two teams will lock up on Saturday as Chatham comes to Forest to take on the Predators.
