The return of a key forward to the Trenton Golden Hawks lineup wasn’t enough on Wednesday night in a 4-2 loss to the Aurora Tigers.
Rex Moe slotted back in the G-Hawks lineup after missing 13 games due to injury, and didn’t record a point.
Trenton got their goals from Steven Elliott and Caleb Boman. Will Rawski stopped 25 shots in net.
Former Belleville Bull Jake Bricknell earned an assist for Aurora.
The Golden Hawks meet up with the Wellington Dukes in the third round of the Battle of Quinte Friday night. Trenton and Wellington have split their previous two meetings this season. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m from the Essroc Arena.
