It appears that the break between their games did not help the Adirondack Phantoms. Last Friday as they took on the Binghamton Senators they fell to a 5-2 decision.
The last time the two teams played, the Phantoms wrecked the Senators, so it is clear that their opponents were seeking out revenge.
The PIMS were average in this game and they were pretty even in shots, the Senators lead 40-39. So these were not the reasons that the Phantoms fell. The Senators just had a better goalie in Nathan Lawson.
Cole Schenider was the star for the Senators by starting the game with two goals in the first period. This definitely gave his teammates Pat Cannone and Mark Borowiecki the confidence they needed score two additional goals.
Jason Akeson, who has been the lead goal scorer for the Phantoms all season, tried to bring momentum to his team with a late period goal in the second.
In the final period, Eric Wellwood banked on the momentum by scoring a second goal for the Phantoms. It wasn’t enough because they were still down by two goals. There was plenty of time left in the period to bring it back, but the Phantoms failed to do so.
Derek Grant sealed the deal for the Senators with one last goal in the third period to lead his team to a 5-2 win.
It seems like every time the Phantoms do well, the next game they play they drop. This is clearly not their year, which is evident by their poor record.
