Titans Open Up 2017 Against Division Rival

Jan 11, 2017


The New Jersey Titans will host the Aston Rebels at the Middletown Sports Complex tonight, January 11, at 7:45 p.m.


In addition, tonight’s game is Titans Day, in which all levels of Titans players will get into the game for free with their families if they wear their Titans jersey.


The Titans will look to even up the season series against the Rebels, as they sit nine points behind Aston in the East Division. The Titans are resuming league play after being off for three weeks.


“We are excited to get back to action in 2017. We had some time off for our boys to decompress and rest. Now the really exciting part of the season starts with the stretch run towards the postseason. We look forward to facing off against the Rebels,” said Head Coach Craig Doremus. “Joe and his team are the top team in our league night now and we are eager to challenge ourselves against them. Tonight should be a great hockey game in front of our loyal fan base. We look forward to seeing everyone in Middletown this evening. ”


With a big opportunity at hand, New Jersey will look to continue their offensive success that it had in the first half of the season. The Titans and Rebels are tied for second in the league in goals scored with 121. The Titans will need to be at their best tomorrow, as the Rebels have had a dominant defense throughout the season. Aston’s defense ranks no.1 in the league, with only 53 goals allowed.


New Jersey had to battle in their two wins against the Rebels this season, and there’s no reason to believe that tonight will be less of a battle between the two teams.


The Titans have 27 games remaining on their schedule, and every one of them is significant. New Jersey will look to sustain their early season success tomorrow as it continues the quest towards the 2017 Robertson Cup Playoffs.


Tickets are available at the Middletown Sports Complex. Information about the Titans home games can also be reached at (732) 856-9700.
