Like their AHL affiliate, the Flyers’ ECHL affiliate the Trenton Titans have been struggling to get some wins. However, this weekend they did manage to get two to maintain their position in the rankings. They do have to continue to play to some great wins if they want to keep their spot, since in their last six games this weekend’s two wins are there only Ws logged.
In their most recent game against the Orlando Solar Bears on Sunday night, the Titans managed a huge victory over the Bears. The game led them to a much needed 5-1 win.
The Titans went hard at the net in the 1st period while West Point Grad, Marcel Alvarez scored a one timer for the Titans to start out the game. Later in the period on a pass from Justin Taylor, Jacob Cepis took the puck up John Curry‘s slot to end the period on a 2-0 lead for the Titans.
The Titans began to run into trouble in the 2nd period. While a 5-on-3 occurred early in the period it was no surprise that the Bears got their first goal in. But the Titans weren’t going to let the lead get away from them. Marcel Noebels and team captain Andy Bombach performed another 2 on 1 in the Bears zone later in the period. Noebels took the puck from his captain and scored the 3rd Titan goal of the night to increase their lead.
The Titans didn’t want the Bears to get another chance to score and their attack of goalie Curry’s net ensued into the final period.
Blake Kessel hit a shot that went off a Bears’ defender and lodged into the net early on in the final period. The Titans were not letting the Solar Bears get a shot in edgewise as minutes later Ian Slater slapped the 5th and final goal post Curry.
The Titans play again tonight against the Elmira Jackals. Last Saturday they lost to them, so we’ll have to wait and see if the Titans can bring their wrath down upon the Jackals.
