Titans to Host Two Division Rivals This Weekend

Jan 31, 2017


The New Jersey Titans will be hosting the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights this Friday night, Feb. 3, at 7:30 p.m. and the Aston Rebels on Saturday night, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m.



The Titans are currently on a three-game losing streak but are hoping to bounce back in their two divisional matchups this weekend. The Titans will also be on a 12-day span without playing a league game going into Friday night’s tilt.



Despite New Jersey’s offensive success this season, ranking second in the league in goals scored, the club was held to only two goals combined during the three-game losing streak. The Titans last scoring outburst came in their last win at home against the Knights in which New Jersey scored five goals.


“We are greatly looking forward to getting back at it this upcoming weekend. Obviously anytime you lose three games in a row it’s not a good feeling but having to sit on those losses for so many days has been frustrating. Anytime in sports you want the chance to redeem yourself and get right back into competition. We went back to the drawing board and worked on a lot of details and style of play emphasis the past couple weeks and I know our players are eager to get after it again,” said Head Coach Craig Dormeus.


“We knew the second half of the season would be filled with very tough Eastern Division games throughout. We will be ready for a hot Wilkes-Barre team and league leading Aston. We look forward to our continued support from our loyal fans this weekend in Middletown.”



In the Titans last game against the Rebels, the red and black were shutout on their home ice. Aston has the best defense in the league this year surrendering only 68 goals on the season.



New Jersey sits in third place in the division with the Knights sitting just six points behind them in fourth place. The Rebels lead the East Division and are 13 points ahead of the Titans.



The Titans will look to gain some momentum in two these important divisional matchups this weekend at home in Middletown after the brief layoff.
