The Chatham Maroons picked up a 5-1 win Sunday night at Chatham Memorial Arena over the Lambton Shores Predators, but more importantly helped the Canadian Cancer Society and The Breast Buddies to help raise awareness and funds to support the fight against breast cancer.

Wearing pink jerseys, which were auctioned off to support the Cancer Society and Breast Buddies, the Chatham Maroons controlling the game from start to finish.

Trevor Richardson opened the scoring in the game with Michael Verboom and Brennan Feasey picking up assists. With the Chatham Maroons on the powerplay, Predators captain Ty Jackson, who hails from Wheatley, scored a shorthanded marker, but it was the only offense Lambton Shores would manage in the game.

To open the second period, Richardson would score his second of the game on the powerplay, with Verboom and Nate Pietens picking up the helped.

The flood gates would then open as Jared Dennis scored a pair for the Chatham Maroons, and Steven Beenackers also scored to make the score 5-1.

Bo Bessette made 21-saves in the win for Chatham.

Chatham now sits third in the GOJHL’s Western Conference with an 11-5-1 record.

Chatham travels to Sarnia this Thursday to face the Legionnaites, before hosting the St. Thomas Stars Sunday.
