Trenton, NJ – The Trenton Titans are winding down their season.
As the playoffs appear to be out of reach, the Titans were able to defeat the Cincinnati Cyclones on Friday night for the first time since November 2010. Yet, when they face a team they have beaten numerous times since 2010, they have a letdown that causes Trenton to lose the game.
The Elmira Jackals were able to defeat the Titans, 6-3, yesterday afternoon at the Sun National Bank Center.
With the win, the Jackals improved to 35-23-3-4 for 77 points. On the other hand with the loss, the Titans drop to 27-30-4-4 for 62 points.
