Sarnia Sting Minor Atom MD had a draw against the Bandits

February 12, 2012


The Sarnia Jr. Sting travelled down the 402 hiway on Wednesday night to face the London Bandits Orange at Nichols Arena. the boys were just coming off of a London tournament in which coaches were very pleased of the effort put forth.
With only two league games remaining in the season, the Sting looked to end the regular season on a win streak. Opening period produced exciting action of both ends of the rink with limited quality scoring opportunities. The Bandits would open the scoring , late in the first, on a powerplay. On a bad angle, the London winger would send a puck to the net which found its way behind a screened Sting goalie Ian Stouth.
There was no scoring in the second period, however Sarnia began to gain confidence as the game drew on. They would finally capitalize in the third period at the 12 minute mark when Sting winger Chandler Haagsma fired the perfect wrist shot which found the back of the twine. Six minutes later, the Jr. Sting would take the lead when defenseman Kristian Spitzig made the strong end to end rush and finished with a hard slapshot which eluded the Bandit goalie. London would continue to pressure seeking the equalizer. In the final two minutes of the game they would tie it up on a goal mouth scramble, with a London forward banging in the loose puck.
The game ended in a 2 - 2 draw, but Sarnia would go home content with the tie and the strong effort produced. The Sting are back in action this Saturday at the Sarnia Arena facing off with West London with a 1:00 pm puck drop.
