Maroons Fall 5-2 To Rockets

The Chatham Maroons dropped a 5-2 decision to the Strathroy Rockets on Tuesday.

The Rockets jumped ahead by scoring the only goal of the first period, but Aaron Jacobs scored for Chatham 12:40 into the second to tie the game. However, Strathroy ended the frame with a 2-1 lead after scoring just under two minutes later.

The Rockets scored two back-to-back goals in the first half of the third, and Josh King scored for Chatham after 15:36 to make it 4-2. Strathroy added one more unanswered goal in the final minutes of the game to cap off their win.

Despite the loss, Chatham outshot the Rockets 43-39.

The Maroons return home on Thursday to take on the St. Marys Lincolns at 7pm.
