Lambton Jr Sting AAA Minor Atom Come up Short

October 9,  2012 


The Lambton Jr. Sting Minor Atom AAA took on the first place Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs in Komoka on Saturday afternoon and put together a very solid effort. However, this young team could not hold on and lost the game 5-4 in the final minute of play.

 

The two teams were every evenly matched in the first period, with chances at both ends of the rink but both goalies stood their ground and the score remained tied at zeros through 10 minutes of play.

 

The Chiefs came out strong in the second and had a 3-1 lead heading in to the third. Andrew Lemieux made a nice rush, shorthanded, to scored the lone goal for Lambton in the period.

 

The third period was very exciting for the Lambton faithful. Lemieux continued his offensive outburst by scoring 3 more goals. His 2nd goal of the game, came just 1:02 into the period and seemed to spark the Jr. Sting. Assists on the play were given to Owen Peters and Rider  Nienhuis. Lambton continued their strong play and on the stellar offensive output of Lemieux were able to tie up the game 4-4 with just 1:18 left in the game. Assists were given to Nicholas Medeiros and Peters on Lemieux’s 3rd and 4th goals of the game.

Unfortunately, on the ensuing faceoff, the Chiefs rushed in and scored on a low shot that goaltender Kaden Gray never saw. Final score : Chiefs 5 – Sting 4.

 

The team travels to Goderich on Saturday to take on the Huron-Perth Lakers and Cambridge on Sunday to take on the Hawks. Go Sting Go!!!
