Legionnaires snap losing skid
Andrew Brethauer September 28th, 2011

London, ON In his first game as Sarnia Legionnaire, Nathan Mater scored a powerplay goal at 11:47 in the first period, in what would be the eventual game winner, to help snap the Legionnaires three game losing streak in a 3-1 victory over the London Nationals.

Mater, who was a part of the Sarnia Sting and sent down from the Jr. A club made an immediate impact, as the Legionnaires went 2 for 10 on the powerplay.

Sarnia lead after the first period as Brent Sauve scored his 4th of the year to give the Legionnaires a 1-0 lead. London would tie it back up within 47 seconds as the Legionnaires went on the penalty kill, as Steven Taylor earned the powerplay goal for the Nationals.

But Mater's first goal of the season for the Legionnaires would come just under two minutes later, as the Nationals gave Sarnia 10 powerplay chances in the game.

No scoring would occur in the second, but in the third Tyler Cicchini would score on the powerplay with under two minutes left to play to ice the game for the Legionnaires, earning their second win of the season.

Sarnia has remained disciplined in recent games, only giving London 5 powerplay chances in the game.

Kyle Washer earned his second victory of the season with a 21 save performance while Sauve added an assist on Mater's goal for a two point night.

Sarnia has a quick turn around as they return home Thursday night to take on Chatham.
