Sarnia, ON - The Lambton Shores Predators will head into the playoffs on a losing note, as they dropped the final game of the season to the Strathroy Rockets 7-2 in Junior B hockey Saturday night.

The Predators had a two goal lead to start the game as Kyle Brothers opened the scoring in the first followed by Corey Pawley with a short handed goal, as Lambton Shores lead 2-0 after twenty minutes.

But seven straight unanswered goals would give the Rockets the victory. Ryan Field would score the only goal in the second period on the power play to cut the lead in half.

In the third, Derek Nap would tie the game, and just over a minute later Ryan Field would get his second of the game to put the Rockets in front. Stuart King would score on the power play as Strathroy took a two goal lead midway through the period.

With Lambton Shores being out shot 16-6 in the third, the Rockets would score three more in the third as Jacob Baribeau, Greg Milner and Tyler Duarte would each tally goals in the 7-2 victory.

Lambton Shores would be out shot 42-31 in total, while Justin Tugwell got the loss making 26 for 29 saves before being pulled for Brandon Campbell who allowed four goals on 13 shots.

Lambton Shores will take on the Sarnia Legionnaires in the first round of the playoffs.
