Shane Harper had his second consecutive hat trick and Jacob Cepis added six points of his own. Flyers prospect, Blake Kessel had three assists as well. Scott Wedgewood stopped 33 of 35 shots in the win.
The Trenton Titans put the final nail in the coffin of Wheeling’s playoff plans with a 5-2 win Friday night in Trenton. Since the Titans were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs on Wednesday night with a loss in Elmira, they’ve embraced the role of spoiler.
The Titans small playoff hopes dimmed further as they fell to Elmira 6-3 Sunday afternoon.
The Titans opened the scoring early as Andrew Johnston buried the puck on a netmouth scramble in front. Off the ensuing faceoff, the Titans drew a penalty to Jordon Southorn for roughing giving them a chance to go up 2-0 early and bury the game.
It took 19 seconds for the Titans to get on the board Sunday afternoon in Trenton against the Orlando Solar Bears when Mike Ulrich beat Zoltan Hetenyi to make it 1-0. The Titans would not take the foot off the gas and cruised to an easy 6-1 win.
