Legionnaires respond in game two with nine goal performance
andrew brethauer March 17th, 2012

Strathroy, ON - Dan Rose said Thursday night that his team would come out with a better performance Saturday night in Strathroy after a flat performance in game one, and the Sarnia Legionnaires would respond in a big way, scoring four goals in each of the first two periods on route to a 9-4 victory to even up the series at 1-1.

Tyler Cicchini opened the scoring just over a minute into the game in what would be an explosive first ten minutes for the Legionnaires in the first period. Nathan Mater would add the second goal, while Brent Sauve and Jason Teschke would also each find the back of the net 16 seconds apart, as Sarnia lead 4-0 before the first ten minutes had expired.

Shawn Grogan would score 25 seconds later for the Rockets only goal in the period as the Strathroy trailed 4-1 after the first twenty.

In the second, Brent Andriash would cut the lead in half early on the period, but the Legionnaires offence would be quick to respond, as Jesse Drydak would pick up a power play goal, while 54 seconds later Brent Sauve would add his second of the game. Teschke would also add his second of the game, as would Cicchini late in the second.

Tyler Duarte would score also in the second period for the Rockets, though the Legionnaires would still hold a strong 8-3 lead after two periods of play.

Duarte would score his second of the game on the power play, but that would be as close the Rockets would come, as Andrew Sokol would add a short handed goal to finish off the 9-4 final.

Kyle Washer made 36 saves in the victory, as Sarnia out shot the Rockets 44-40.

With the series now tied at 1-1, the action shifts back to Sarnia on Tuesday, March 20th for game three.
