Maroons Back To Winning Ways
It took double overtime, but the Chatham Maroons won their third straight Sunday night on home ice, downing Sarnia 5-4 in front of 812 fans at Memorial Arena.
Captain Steven Beenackers’ 19th goal proved to be the game winner at 2:05 of the second extra frame. The goal was Beenackers’ sixth game-winner of the season, as reported by Mark Malone and the Chatham Daily News.
Bryce Yetman continued his hot streak, scoring two to lead the Maroons, assisting on another from Brendan D’Agostino, who finished with a goal and an assist himself. Yetman also had a chance to play superhero with a penalty shot in the first overtime period. Yetman was denied the hat trick by Legionnaires tender Jorgen Johnson.
Nolan Vandenboorn also scored for Chatham. Dakota Bohn and Michael Douglas each had two helpers. Beenackers added an assist to his game-winner.
The win puts the Maroons back into a tie for second place in the West with the London Nationals. The two will clash Wednesday in London. Chatham is back home for their regular Sunday tilt, welcoming the fourth place Leamington Flyers at 7 pm.
