Three goals in third lead Legionnaires to win over Rockets
andrew brethauer January 28th, 2012

Strathroy, ON - After Thursday's loss to the Lambton Shores Predators, Dan Rose said his Sarnia Legionnaires would play much better on Saturday against Strathroy, and they did, picking up a 5-3 victory over the Rockets in junior B hockey.

Sarnia opened the scoring in the first as Thomas Moxley put Sarnia up 1-0. The power play would do it in for the lead as Nick Boyer would get the Rockets all square in the first period with his power play goal, as the two teams were even in shots 15-15 through the first twenty.

In the second, Davis Brown would net a pair of goals, including one on the power play to help put the Rockets a head by one in the second. Daniel Nikandrov would score in-between Brown's goals on the power play to keep Sarnia to within one.

In the third, Sarnia would come out firing, putting 13 shots on net and holding the Rockets to only 8. Nikandrov picked up his second of the game to tie it at 3-3, and then the Legionnaires power play would go to work, as Shawn Waldie would put Sarnia in front, and two minutes later, Jason Teschke would secure a two goal lead with just under three minutes left to play.

Sarnia would hold on to the 5-3 victory, while goalie Sean Parker made 38 saves for his 12th win of the season.

Sarnia will have a busy week coming, as they head to London on Wednesday, February 1st, and then return home on Thursday, February 2nd to take on St. Thomas, and then head back out again to Leamington on Saturday, February 4th.
