Legionnaires drop second game of week
andrew brethauer September 25th, 2011

St. Thomas, ON  The Sarnia Legionnaires are losers of their last three games, and four of their last five to start the season after a 5-2 loss to the St. Thomas Stars Sunday night.

For the second game this week, Sarnia held the lead to start the game after Shawn Waldie scored in the first to make it a 1-0 game.

St. Thomas would return with four unanswered goals before Derek D'Andrea could score in the middle of the third to end the five goal streak of the Stars.

Drew Collinson got the scoring started for the Stars in the first, followed by Mac Wood and Brad Kraus scoring 41 seconds apart to make it a 3-1 game after the first period.

Brett Hope had the lone goal in the second for the Stars who outshot Sarnia 15-14 in the period.

Matt Schurr would add the Stars fifth straight goal for the Stars in the 5-2 victory.

Sarnia and St. Thomas tied in shots 42-42, but the lack off offence outside of the Legionnaires home opener has been an ongoing concern for Sarnia.

Sarnia's lone win came in their home opener in a 9-2 victory LaSalle.

Kyle Washer had the start for Sarnia, stopping 37 shots in the loss.

Sarnia takes on the London Nationals on Wednesday before returning home to play Chatham on Thursday. With a 1-4-0 record, the Legionnaires are currently last in the Western Conference.
