October 2, 2012  by N. Mcintosh

Offense Clicks in 5-1 Win

Sarnia Sting Minor Midgets’ offence came alive in a win over Brantford 99’s Sunday evening in Alliance hockey league action at Sarnia arena. In the first, they staked themselves to a 3-1 lead and added 2 in the second to solidify the win.

Nolan Riley got Sarnia on the board with a power play goal at 13:39 of the first assisted by Jeff Williams and Callahan Doughty. Dillon Saunders quickly added another at 12:04 assisted by Kyle Adams before Brantford retaliated at 10:28 with their only goal of the game by Liam Riches assisted by Caleb Stewart. Saunders added his second goal shortly after that at 9:13 to end the scoring spree in the first. Kyle Adams again assisted on the goal. Sarnia outshot The 99’s 9 to 5 in the frame.

 The scoring for the Sting continued early in the second. Kevin Durco drove home his first goal in league play at 14:21 assisted by Michael Pearce. Tyler Drury worked hard to help kill off two Sting penalties shortly after that. Richard McIntosh helped put the game out of reach with the fifth goal of the game at 7:05 assisted by Saunders and Adams. Dillon and Kyle had three points each on the night. Mat Szabo made a great glove save at 5:24 to prevent further damage by Brantford.


The third period was penalty filled with no further scoring. Sarnia outshot Brantford 24 to 21 in the game. It was a solid game for the Sting as they played well as a team from the goal to the defense and the forwards. As Coach Smitty declared early in the season when interviewed, “ When you score more goals than the other team, usually you win.”
