Chatham Maroons Targeting Sweep
“We just have to keep it simple and play our game,” says defenseman Steven Szekesy of game four, which takes place Wednesday in Chatham, “take it shift to shift and put pucks on net.”
The Maroons beat LaSalle 5-4 Sunday without leading scorer Kyle Brothers, or forward Brayden Hopkins, who were both out due to injury. Chatham received depth scoring from players such as Trevor Richardson, Jared Dennis, and Ian Faubert, and continued production from stars Adam Arseneault and Michael Verboom in their first three games of this season.
“The series so far has been a battle like we expected, every game has been physical and really close,” said forward Trevor Richardson.
“Our team’s success so far has been how we gelled as a team and everybody knows what their role is, and everybody is playing their game,” said Szekesy of the Maroons, who are 7-0 in the playoffs after sweeping Strathroy in round one, and winning the first three games of round two.
“For Wednesday our focus is to stay calm and positive and don’t let the whole seven game winning streak get in our heads,” added Szekesy. “Also not to take them light because no matter what, they won’t go down without a fight.”
“Our focus is to bring the same game we have brought the first 3 games of this series and try to end this series Wednesday night,” added Richardson.
Puck drop for game four is 7pm this Wednesday at Chatham’s Memorial Arena.
