Titans Fall At Home To Elmira, 4-1
February 18th, 2013 | Comments (0)
TRENTON, NJ – The Trenton Titans, proud ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, could not take advantage of their first home game in nine days, falling to Atlantic Division foe Elmira today, 4-1, before an announced President’s Day matinee crowd of 3,003 at the Sun National Bank Center.
Scott Wedgewood (L, 36 saves, 15-19-3-1) was outdueled but not outplayed by Elmira’s Maxime Clermont (W, 30 saves, 13-10-2-1) in the Battle of New Jersey draft picks. Wedgewood was selected by the Devils in the third round (#84) of the 2010 NHL Draft, while Clermont was a sixth round pick (#174).

The Titans (20-26-4-3=47 points) found themselves down 2-0 after two periods and in need of a quick goal in the third. They got that goal from Jordan Cepis (15) less than five minutes into the frame. Following a steal and forecheck pressure by Andy Bohmbach and Jesse Todd, Cepis rolled around the net to Clermont’s left. After having the first shot stopped, Cepis lifted a second over a prone Clermont, cutting the deficit to 2-1.
Unfortunately despite some good pressure it was as close as the Titans would get, as the Jackals (28-20-2-2=60 points, 8th in the Atlantic) would add two late goals – the last an empty-netter in the final minute to seal the win.
