It was an offensive loss, literally, for the Chatham Maroons Thursday night, as the Chatham Maroons dropped an offense filled 7-6 decision to the visiting London Nationals after allowing three late goals.

Derek Todosichuk opened the scoring for the London Nationals, and was a force all night, finishing with four points. Chatham’s Trevor Richardson would answer back in the first period, but London would respond in the final seconds of the period to hold a 2-1 lead after one.

Todosichuk again opened the second period scoring, but Chatham would take over in the second. Alex Morgan and Brennan Feasey scored powerplay goals for the Chatham Maroons, while Jared Dennis and Steven Szekesy notched even strength markers.

With Chatham leading 5-4 heading into the third period, the Maroons looked to have things locked up after Alex Morgan scored his second of the game to open the scoring in the third, and put the Maroons ahead 6-4.

Chatham however, wouldn’t score again, while the London Nationals would score three unanswered goals, capped off by Drew Worrad’s second goal and fifth point of the evening, a shorthanded effort to secure the victory for London.

Chatham will try to get back in the win column Friday when they travel to St. Marys, before hosting the first place, undefeated Sarnia Legionnaires Sunday at Memorial Arena.
