Game Recap

Belleville Sens Lose Preseason Opener

October 8, 2022

The Belleville Senators were unable to keep pace on Friday night at CAA Arena as they fell 4-1 to the Toronto Marlies in their preseason opener.

After a scoreless opening twenty minutes of play, the Senators opened the scoring at 1:19 of the second frame through Russian forward Egor Sokolov, who notched his first tally of the exhibition season to make it 1-0. The lead was shortlived as Orrin Centazzo capitalized on a long breakaway to even the game after forty minutes of play. In the third period, the Marlies took control of the game, striking three unanswered times as Keenan Suthers, Ryan Chyzowski, and Brett Budgell tallied before the seven-minute mark of the frame to secure the win.
