Legionnaires dump St. Thomas 4-1 on the road

Sarnia continues to win as they close out the season on the road

With only two games left in the season the Sarnia Legionnaires are looking to finish strong.  Coach Mark Davis looking to keep both of his goalies sharp as he started Will Barber in net, for a game on the road against the St. Thomas Stars.  This game was great tight hockey as only six minutes on three penalties were called.

The crowd of just over 600 at the St. Thomas Timkin Rink would have to wait until the second period to see a goal, and the first one they saw came from Sarnia.  Cameron Hough, who has been having a great season would take the feed from Sam McCormack just 18 seconds into the period to put it behind St. Thomas netminder Anthony Hurtubise.  St. Thomas would answer back with a goal from Craig McKague.  But Joel Pavey would grab a loose puck and that turned into an unassisted goal and Sarnia would finish out the period leading 2-1.

Sarnia would keep the pressure on in the third period with a goal from Trevor Bogaert.  St Thomas would pull Hurtubise from the net in hopes of getting the advantage but Josh Barraclough would force a turnover and then put it into the empty net to give the Legionnaires a 4-1 win.  A great night for Barber as he stopped 35 of 36 shots.

Sarnia will close out the season on the road on Sunday night as they travel to the West Middlesex Memorial Arena to play the Strathroy Rockets.  The Legionnaires will meet the St. Thomas Stars again in the first round of the Western Conference quarter finals.  Those games are yet to be determined as to their start times.
