On Sunday afternoon, the Atom B girls team, hosted the appropriately named, Woodstock Wildcats. The visiting team entered the RBC Center with a short bench, and scratched and clawed their way through three periods. Coach Chad Williams, was thankful for the visitors being short staffed, as he said "our team came out flat". Brooke Lauwers would open the scoring on a juicy rebound, at 5:13 of the opening period. Drawing assists were Avery Winder, and Tori Iacobelli. Late in the first, with only twenty-five seconds to play, Lindsey Barwitzki would fill the open net, as the puck lay in the crease. Assisting was Kaylee Clarke, on the goal.
Coach Williams has juggled his line combinations recently, and the team has responded positively. Williams says ``the girls really dislike being scored on. The team has a strong back check, which is key to their success``. He also mentioned that, ``even though she doesn't get many shots on occasion, Abbie Clouse should be recognized for her efforts, when she is tested``.
Lady Sting on top, 2-0.
In a Saturday afternoon tilt, the Sarnia girls would host the dangerous, Wilmot Wolverines. The two young teams, offered some exciting action.
Taylor Coutts would break in alone, to deke, and slide the puck on the low side, to open the scoring for the Sarnia team.
Not to be outdone, Brooke Lauwers would find room in the offensive zone, only to snap one high under the bar, to give the home team, a two goal lead. The Lady Sting would find penalty trouble, late in the third period. The Wolverines pulled their goalie, to make it, six-on-four. The strategy was successful, as Wilmot would score on the play. Time would expire, and the girls from the Sarnia-Lambton area, who represent the Lady Sting, would earn the 2-1 win.
They next face, the Devilettes of London, on the road. They travel to Mississauga for a Christmas Classic Tournament, beginning on Dec. 27th.
Good Luck Lady Sting !
