The St. John’s Edge look to salvage their five-game road trip with a win Wednesday night in Saint John, N.B.

The Edge are 2-2 on their most recent road swing following a second straight loss Tuesday with a 109-102 setback to the Moncton Magic in Moncton.

St. John’s opened with back-to-back wins against Cape Breton and P.E.I., but lost to the Halifax Hurricanes Sunday.

Wednesday night’s game against the Riptide is set for 8 p.m. (NL time) at Harbour Station.

The Edge suffered a big blow early on Tuesday when Glen Davis left the game because of injury, and didn’t return.

He did, however, return to the Edge bench after receiving treatment.

Junior Cadougan continued his strong play with a game-high 32 points. Obinna Oleka had another double-double, with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Dez Lee also scored 14.

Newcomer Isaiah Tate chipped in with 11 points, and Olu Ashaolu and Diego Kapelan both had 10 apiece.

Following Wednesday’s game, the Edge comes home for a two-game series with the Windsor Express Friday and Sunday at Mile One Centre, before hitting the road again for anotherfour-game road trip, this one through Ontario.
