andrew brethauer October 3rd, 2011

St. Thomas, ON - Fortunes turned quickly for the Lambton Shores Predators, who were riding a two game win streak, only for two losses, including a 5-2 loss to St. Thomas to put them back below ,500 on the year.

St. Thomas held the early 1-0 lead after the first period, as Kevin Zacharuk scored for the Stars, despite the Predators outshooting St. Thomas 14-12 in the period.

The Predators would put another 14 shots on net in the second, but wouldn't connect with a goal till Kyle Brothers scored at the 14:02 mark of the period to equal the game at 1-1. But that tie wouldn't hold out till the end of the period, as Brad Kraus scored on the powerplay with a minute left in the second to retake the 2-1 lead.

In the third, St. Thomas would open up the scoring, slotting two more passed Predators goalie Brandon Campbell. Drew Collinson would make it a 3-1 game, while Kraus would get his second powerplay goal for the Stars to make it a three goal lead.

Brothers would score his second of the game on the powerplay to answer the Stars goals, but it would be to late in the game to mount a comeback. Blake Thomas would score an empty net goal to put away the 5-2 victory.

Campbell made 36 saves in the loss, while the Predators went 1 for 7 on their powerplay, whiling giving up 2 goals on 6 penalty kills.

Lambton Shores will be on the read next week, with road games on Tuesday in Strathroy, Friday in St. Marys and Saturday in Guelph.
