Flori-D’Oh! Titans Fly Into Failure At Start Of Trip

(PR) ESTERO, FL – In their first meeting of the year, the Trenton Titans – proud ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers – dropped the front end of a two-game set to the defending Kelly Cup Champion Florida Everblades, 5-2, before a crowd of 4,136 at Germain Arena last night.

The Everblades (22-15-3-4=51 points) scored three different ways in the second period – even strength, power play and short handed – to break open a tight, 1-0 game and take a 4-0 lead into the third period.

Trenton (17-21-3-3=40) went 0-for-3 on the man advantage while it’s PK unit – number one in the league at 86.4 percent – allowed two goals in five tries to the second best power play unit (22.8) in the ECHL, including a 5-on-3 chance to begin the third, which Brayden Irwin managed to slip by Scott Wedgewood (L, 32 saves, 13-15-2-1) 30 seconds in for a 5-0 Florida lead.

Pat Nagle (W, 35 saves, 11-6-0-1) kept the Titans at bay all game, until the fifth goal of the year for Connor Goggin, a rocket from the right point, ended the shutout bid at 14:15 of the third. Mike Ullrich capped off the scoring with 2:15 to play, with his fourth goal of the season (and third as a Titan), after battling to put home a rebound off Nagle.

The Titans have an off day before getting a second chance at the Everblades on Friday at 7:30 pm. They will then head up Interstates 4 and 75 to battle the Orlando Solar Bears on Saturday at 7:00 pm before flying home. Both games can be heard – beginning 15 minutes prior with the pregame show – on flagship station 107.7 FM The Bronc (Trenton Area), 1077theBronc.com and at AmericaOne.com, with the Voice of the Titans, “The Bronc” Daryle Dobos calling all the action.

    From a 4-0 start….to irrelevance and apathy…..blew the chance to lift up the franchise back to the early 2000’s when that building was always rockin’ during the lockout….WASTED OPPORTUNITY…..SUPPOSEDLY this franchise cleaned house after last years debacle…….but they forgot to sweep out one last piece of refuse……and until they do that…..this team won’t win and the building will be empty……SAD

    Mike, keep up your good work, one of the few bright spots following this franchise, a shame that because this team is now irrelevant, your hard work isn’t being appreciated by more people…
