Leamington, ON -  With only scoring in the second period, the Lambton Shores Predators managed to hold the Leamington Flyers to just 2 goals, despite allowing 61 shots on net. But it would still be enough for the 2-1 victory.

Leamington had 24 shots in the first period compared to Lambton Shores 5 shots, but goalie Justin Tugwell kept the Predators in the game through the first, keeping the score board clean.

In the second, Matt Ogden would get the Flyers on the board first. Lambton Shores would respond as Corey Pawley would tie the game with under 2 minutes remaining.

With the Predators on the power play, Alex Seguin would score a short handed goal which would end up being the game winner with 33 seconds remaining in the period.

The door would be shut again in the third period as neither team could score, resulting in a 2-1 loss for Lambton Shores.

"It was a very good game. We just can't get any breaks. I was very proud of our guys, they battled to the end," said Head Coach Mark Davis. "We scored with twenty three seconds left but they said the net was off. Just one of those breaks we need and it's just not happening. Justin Tugwell was outstanding in net."

Lambton Shores will return home and take on St. Thomas on Saturday and Strathroy on Sunday.
