Leamington 5 Sarnia 4 (OT) (Playoff game 1)
Sarnia’s Derek D’Andrea had 2 goals and an assist and Sean Parker made 50 saves, but it wasn’t enough as the Legionnaires would battle back to tie it in the 3rd with back to back goals, but give up the game winner to Leamington in OT.
Forward Davis Boyer says its just one game…
