Predators winless streak reaches seven games
andrew brethauer January 4th, 2012

LaSalle, ON - The Lambton Shores Predators started the new year with a 4-3 loss to the LaSalle Vipers, making it over a month since they last won their last game.

A 5-4 victory against London back on November 30th was the last time Lambton Shores came away with two points, as six games in December and now the start of January have driven a winless streak to seven games.

Kody Ryan opened the scoring for the Predators to give them the early first period lead, but a pair of goals by Brad Carroll would put the Vipers back in front 2-1 at the end of the first period. The Predators were outshot 24-7 in the period.

Kyle Brothers would tie the game 33 seconds into the second period, and it would be the first tie of the period, as LaSalle would retake the lead as Matthew Yantzi scored two minutes later. Nick Erb would tie the game back up, sending it into the third 2-2.

In the third Kyle Quick would put the Vipers back up midway through the third period, and again would out shoot the Predators 15-6. Lambton Shores would not be able to find the equalizer, and trailed the Vipers 50-24 in shots.

Brandon Campbell made 46 saves in the loss for the Predators

The Predators return home on the weekend, welcoming Sarnia on Friday, and St. Marys on Saturday.
