The Sarnia girls traveled to London on Saturday afternoon, to face the Devilettes.
The home team were well prepared, and came out flying, from the opening faceoff. Sarnia would face much pressure, which resulted in an early lead for London, in the first few minutes of play. The Lady Sting would battle back. Tying the game, with forty-eight seconds remaining in the period, was Madi Gould. Assisting on the goal, was Brooke Lauwers.
The second period was scoreless, but both teams had their scoring opportunities. Late in the third, with less than a minute to play. Abbie Williams would take a shot from the point, which was blocked by a London player. The blocked shot resulted in a break away for the Devilettes. Abbie ``Wheels`` Williams would chase the London player all the way to her own net, where she would lift the players stick, denying any shot. Abbie Clouse would pounce on the puck, to keep the game tied. Time would expire, and the Sting would skate away with a 1-1 tie.
Coach Chad Williams, said "it was a fun, exciting game to be part of. We played with a short bench, since we missed three players on defence".
Peri Wilson filled in on defence, and "did a good job back there" said Williams. Williams was also happy with his goaltender Abbie Clouse, who made some key saves during the game.
The Lady Sting travel to Mississauga for a Christmas Tournament on Dec.27th - 29th. Unable to fill a B division, the girls will compete in a, diversified A division. Good Luck Lady Sting!
