The Sarnia Legionnaires dropped a 4-0 decision to the London Nationals Wednesday.

The Nats outshot Sarnia 47-22, with goalies Shayne Battler and Aidan Hughes sharing the netminding duties for the Legionnaires. Both played well, despite the score.

Sarnia had two midget callups in the lineup (defenceman Nash Neinhuis and forward Ben Schoch (who also saw some time on the blueline).

Afterward, head coach Mark Davis praised both rookies, saying their good play is a positive sign for the future of the club.

The Legionnaires return to action tonight (Thursday, Feb. 18) when they host the LaSalle Vipers. Sarnia will introduce its new third jersey at that time.
