Sarnia Sting Lost Another Close One to Owen Sound

October 6, 2012 

Sarnia, On - The Sting hosted the Owen Sound Attack for game two of the home/home series Friday night at the RBC Centre.  After taking a close 2 - 1 loss in Owen Sound the Sting lost another close game by a score of 4 - 3. 


In the pregame ceremonies the Sting presented ex-captain Nathan Chiarlitti with his team sweater and a standing ovation from Sting Fans.  Chiarlitti was a fan favourite who played four season with the Sting before being traded to Owen Sound earlier this season.


Owen Sound took the lead in the first period just two and a half minutes into the game when Joseph Blandisi was left alone in front of the net and backhanded it in for the goal.  That was the only goal scored in the period.

In the second period it was a roller coaster ride as a total of five goals were scored beginning at 7:36 when Alex Galchenyuk scored the equalizer on a rebound off  Bryan Moore who was playing in his first OHL game.  Craig Hottot also earned an assist on the goal.


Owen Sound answered back just over two minutes later at 9:48 to regain the lead after Holden Cook scored after the puck was picked up  at the blue line by Gemel Smith who earned the assist.  Sarnia's Charlie Sarault scored the only power play goal in the game at 15:33 with Alex Galchenyuk and Reid Boucher assisting.  Just :22 seconds later Joseph Blandisi earned his second of the night after the Sting couldn't clear the puck in front and Blandisi took a low show into the net.  Another equalizer goal for the Sting was scored by Nick Latta at 16:29 after receiving the puck from Anthony DeAngelo.  The period ended with both sides even at 3 - 3.

“The kids worked hard,” said Sting head coach Jacques Beaulieu. “We missed an assignment on the opening face-off to start the third period and it cost us the game." 

In the third period it took just :11 seconds for Owen Sound to regain the lead when Cameron Brace took a pass from Daniel Catenacci and found the mark scoring the eventual game winner.  In the final minute the Attack already a man short due to a penalty found themselves two men down after Sarnia pulled their goalie, however Owen Sound held the attack off to take the win.

Netminder Jordan Binnington earned the win for Owen Sound turning away 30 shots.  JP Anderson took the loss for the Sting.


Owen Sound went 0 for 2 in power play opportunities, Sarnia went 1 for 6.


After scoring two goals in the game Joseph Blandisi earned the first star of the night, Alex Galchenyuk with a goal and an assist took second star and Owen Sound's Cameron Brace earned third star.

"The kids are battling and are in every game." said Beaulie "It’s tough to take at at loss at home,  we have to go back tomorrow in the Sault and play a good game and try to get some points."

The Sting travels Saturday for an evening game in Sault Ste Marie then on Monday they travel to Windsor for an afternoon game.

The Sting are back at home on Saturday Oct 13 when they host Niagara at 7:05 at the RBC Centre.
