The Sarnia Jr. Sting Major Atom MD defeated the visiting West London Hawks by a score of 4-1 on Saturday February 25 at the Clearwater Arena.
Sarnia got off to a great start the first shift of the game with several scoring chances but it would be the Hawks who opened the scoring on a tipped shot that fooled the Jr. Sting goalie Cam Stevens. That would be the only goal that Cam would surrender and Spencer Baillie would answer for the Jr. Sting shortly after on a nice individual effort top corner wrist shot.
The second period would see the Jr. Sting get three goals. Mat Waun got the eventual game winner on a rebound from Cole Goossens and Collin Zimmer, Ian Bailey shoveled in a loose puck with Nathan Oliphant and Tyler Talbot-Ellis assisting and Collin Zimmer jumped on a rebound to finish the scoring. Cole Goossens and Nathan Oliphant were awarded assists on the play.
Mat Waun was chosen as the coach’s player of the game and the parents selected Ian Bailey to be their player of the game. The Jr. Sting are back in action tomorrow Sunday February 26 in London as they face the Oakridge Aeros at 5:15 at the Oakridge Arena.
