Knights End Pre-Season With A Win


It is time for the regular season to begin.  The London Knights rounded up their exhibition schedule with a 3-1 win over the Plymouth Whalers at the Timken Centre in St. Thomas on Saturday night.  Jake Patterson made 46 saves and the Knights got goals from Alex Broadhurst, Chris Tierney and Matt Rupert.  Broadhurst also chipped in an assist and Matt Rupert added two assists of his own.

As the game wore on, the benches got roomier as the second game between the teams in two nights featured even more fisticuffs than the first.

The Knights finished the pre-season with a record of 3-2.  They will open the regular season at home to the Erie Otters on September 21st.
