Sarnia Jr Sting Minor Peewee MD Journeyed to the Festival City

October 3, 2012 

It was worth the drive to Stratford!

The Sting Minor PeeWee MD team made the journey to the festival city on Sunday, to compete with Stratford. At first glance, the construction and detours seemed like the biggest obstacles for the Sting, but when the puck dropped, they found out Stratford had arrived ready to play.

The tempo of the game was set early, with the play going end to end, and both teams trying out their shoulder pads, this however led to a few early penalties for both teams.

Sarnia would score first and early, on good pressure from the D, holding the line in the Stratford end, the puck would bounce all over the crease, with shots coming from a number of sting players.
It finally ended up on the stick of Greg Ross, who shot it at the net, a fast rebound to Spencer Baillie, and then a backhand high over the goalie for Evan Trigatti getting his first of the season.

Stratford would give the Sting a good opportunity, with the first power-play, however the sting looked better even handed, and were not able to capitalize.

The play continued going back and forth, with Stevie Schaefer holding the line, and keeping the puck out of the net.

Ian Bailey played tough along the boards, keeping the Stratford player son their toes with his solid two way play.

Stratford would get on the board in the second, when the puck was held in, and the players whacked at the puck a number of times, finally it freed up, and Stratford was able to put it in the Sting net, to tie the game.

Less than 10 seconds later, the Sting made some FANTASTIC passing plays, from Cycyzurcko to Griffing, to Talbot-Ellis, back to Griffin to Ellis and in. Tyler made a huge dangle, to put the puck in, and give the Sting the 2-1 Lead.

The second period saw a number of Head hit penalties, and the refs did their best to straighten out their calls, at one point the crowd was wondering if replacements were officiating, but they worked it out to even both sides.

Cole Goossens grabbed a pass from Aidan Clark, and made a great rush up the side boards, being hooked by 3 players, before hitting the net. Unfortunately the puck would not go in.

Kaleb Zeytinoglu banged the puck off the cross bar, and missed a couple great opportunities. However was not able to finish it off.

The game would end with Stratford pulling the goalie, and the Sting scrambling in the final seconds to pull the first win of regulation in Stratford.
