The Sarnia Legionnaires travelled up the 402 Wednesday night, to the Western Fair Community Centre in London to face the London Nationals. The Legionnaires went into London coming off of a win against Strathroy and were looking to stretch their win streak to two games, and own the 402. Blair Coffin was back in net for Sarnia, as they prepared for a matchup with the number one team in the division.
Sarnia started strong as Jarret Marks scored the first goal as the game really just got started. It only took Marks two minutes and 12 seconds before he put the puck in the net.
London would come back in the second period as Brenden Trottier would score on the powerplay. Brock Perry would lead the powerplay for Sarnia and that resulted in a goal and the lead once again for Sarnia.
Sarnia would go two for five on the powerplay as Alec DeKoning would turn on the red light in the third period. The Legionnaires were not done there as Jarret Marks would get his second goal of the night by hitting the empty net, giving Sarnia a 4-1 win. Blair Coffin turned away 36 of 37 shots.
The Legionnaires move up in the standings as they knocked off the number one team. Sarnia is in fourth place trailing Leamington by just two points. Next up for the Legionnaires is a trip to St. Marys on Friday night to play the Lincolns.
Just a note. the game that was cancelled on Thursday, January 4, has been rescheduled to Friday, February 13, at the Brock St. Arena.
