Sarnia Jr Sting Minor Atom MD ended regular season with a win

February 14, 2012

 

 
Having come off of one of their best performances, the MD Jr. Sting were very anxious to play against the top-ranked West London Hawks. On a blistery winter day, the West London contingent made the snowy trek to Sarnia to face the Sting at the Old Barn. This would be the last game of the regular season and the Sarnia boys were looking to end it on a high note. These two teams have met on three separate occasions with West London winning all three. The tide was about to change however, as Sarnia was playing their best hockey of the season.
 
At the opening face-off, you could see the determination in the eyes of the Sting players. They continued to pressure London in their own end with great bursts of energy. Sarnia would be rewarded for their efforts in the 9 minute mark of the opening period when Sting defenseman Kristian Spitzig made one of his famous end to end rushes finishing with the strong wrist shot, from the top of the circle, which eluded the Hawk's goalie. Sarnia ended the period up 1 - 0.
The Jr. Sting would take a two goal lead late in the second, when Sting captain Simon Doan slotted the puck past a sprawling London goalie. London would get one back scoring 50 seconds later.
 
The third period's pace was fast and furious producing 4 added goals. Sarnia would score two more 6 minutes apart, on goals from winger Adam Ikert and Kurtis Allardyce. London finished strong scoring two in the third but were denied in the final stages of the game from solid goaltending by Sarnia goalie Ian Stouth. The final buzzer sounded sending jubilation across the Sting bench as Sarnia achieved their goal of finishing the season with a 4 - 3 win!

Next action for the Sting is Monday night in London facing the London Bandits for the opening of playdowns.
