St. Thomas, ON - For the first time in franchise history, the Lambton Shores Predators are heading to the playoffs after a 4-2 victory over the St. Thomas Stars Sunday night.

The Predators scored twice in the first period 50 seconds apart as Cody Trowell opened the scoring followed by Corey Pawley to give Lambton Shores a 2-0 lead after the first twenty minutes.

St. Thomas would get one back on the power play as Braden Hellems would score, but 54 seconds later, Adam Arseneault would get his own power play goal to put the Predators back in front by two. Davis Boyer would cut the lead back down to one just over a minute later, but the Predators would still hold a 3-2 lead heading into the third.

In the third, Arseneault would pick up his second of the game midway through the period, putting the Predators back up in front by two. St. Thomas would put 16 shots on net but Brandon Campbell would stop all 16, as the Predators would go on to the 4-2 victory.

The victory puts Lambton Shores four points a head of Chatham, who only have two games remaining. Brandon Campbell made 33 saves for the victory.

Lambton Shores will take on Strathroy on Saturday and look towards their first round match up with Sarnia.
