Five goal third period leads Legionnaires over Predators
andrew brethauer January 6th, 2012

Forest, ON - After a five goal first period Thursday night against London, the Sarnia Legionnaires pulled out a five goal third period on the struggling Lambton Shores Predators, as the Legionnaires handed the Predators their eight straight loss winning 7-2.

Derek D'Andrea would score the eventual game winner 4:25 into the third period on the power play, as the Legionnaires and Predators were knotted at two goals each heading into the final period.

Jesse Drydak would score on the power play in the first period to open the scoring, and Anthony Donati would add a second power play as the Legionnaires took the first period lead 2-0.

Lambton Shores would fight back to tie the game, as Nick Erb would get a power play goal back to cut the lead in half, and Kody Ryan would square the game with under three minutes in the period.

But power plays would be the undoing for the Predators, as D'Andrea's goal would be the first of three power play goals the Legionnaires would score in the period. Nathan Mater would add the second power play goal, while Matt Cimetta would score on even strength. Drydak would add his second goal of the game on the power play and Tyler Cicchini would cap of the five goal third period.

Sarnia went 5 for 8 on the power play, while the Predators went 1 for 10.

Sean Parker got the victory making 30 saves for his ninth win of the season. Brandon Campbell made 24 saves in the loss.

Lambton Shores will host St. Marys on Saturday night while the Legionnaires are off till Wednesday when they travel to LaSalle.
