The red-hot Sarnia Legionnaires ran their winning streak to three games Thursday, outgunning the Strathroy Rockets 5-3.
Superstar Nolan DeGurse was in on all five Sarnia goals, scoring three and assisting on two others. He now has 31 tallies on the season, including eight in his last three games.
The win, which improved the Legion crew’s record to 15-22-1-3 allowed Sarnia to move into a tie for seventh place with the Komoka Kings in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s western conference.
DeGurse’s first marker of the night came late in the opening period when he deflected home a point shot from Captain Ben Schoch. Rookie Ayden Letang also had a helper on the power-play goal.
His second tally, which came in the last minute of the second period, may have turned the tide. Racing in on a short-handed breakaway, DeGurse beat Rockets netminder Zion Miceli with a rising shot from close range. Sarnia goalie Nolan DeKoning and defenceman Jake Vince had assists on the goal, which sent the teams to their dressing rooms deadlocked at 2-2.
