OJR Post a Perfect 5 and 0 On Road Trip
The Ontario Jr Reign (16-4-0) defeated the Long Beach Shredders (6-12-0) by a score of 5-1. The Jr Reign went on the road and handled their business, finishing with a 5-0 record against the Lakers, Roughnecks and Shredders. None of their opponents really stood a chance, the average margin of victory for Ontario was over five and a half goals.
It was a big night for Josh Quetel as he recorded his first assist and scored his first goal as a member of the Jr Reign, and it was made all the more sweeter coming against his former club. He is now one point away from tying his career high in points in only four appearances.
The outcome of the game was never in doubt as Ontario held a 4-0 lead entering the third period.
That would be enough of a cushion for Julian Arenal to work with as he made his first start in 15 days. He showed no signs of rust, picking up the win after putting in a 24 save performance with just the single goal allowed. Which means that each of the Jr Reign’s trio of goalies collected a win on the road trip.
It was a quiet, but routine game on special teams for Ontario. They did not get many power play opportunities, and they were perfect on the PK as usual. However, Rhys Doyle was sprung on a breakaway by Oliver Hawkes and Doyle made no mistake burying the OJR's first shorthanded goal of the season.
Kaedin-Larocque-Wolfe scored his 23rd goal of the season, and extended his season best scoring streak to 10 games.
