The New Year has started well for Sarnia's Lady Sting Midget AA's with an undefeated weekend at the Guelph Thunder Tournament.

The first game of the round robin was against the home team Guelph Thunder and Sarnia came out looking to avenge a loss to Guelph late in the previous year. It was not until the 2nd period before Shauna McPhail scored with assists to McKayla Eves and Kassie Roache. Less than a minute later Sydney Smith on a pass from Amy Vanden Eynde scored from the point .

The 3rd period saw Smith score again from the point with assists going to Emily Williams,Marlowe Pecora and the shut-out to Karley Ferguson.Game 2 of the round robin was 4 to 1 victory over the Haldimand Rivercats.Scoring for Sarnia were Jillian Rops and Pecora with the natural hat trick. Assists went to Williams, Smith, Pecora, Roache , Vanden Eynde {2} with Erica Sullivan getting the win in net.

The final round robin game proved to be the closest scoring with Sarnia winning 2 to1 against the North Halton Twisters. Once again it was Smith and Pecora providing the scoring while helpers went to Jillian Rops, Sydney Weiss, Jenna Rops with Ferguson collecting her 2nd win in net.

The Semi -Finals proved to be the best game of the weekend as Sarnia faced off against Saugeen Maitland.Sarnia stared quickly scoring in the first 30 seconds when Williams knocked home a rebound to start the scoring. Assist went to Rops and Pecora. Saugeen answered in the 2nd period with first of 3 but Darian Adams replied for Sarnia less than 15 seconds later on a pass from Roache. The 2nd period ended with Sarnia up 3-2 when Pecora scored from Williams and Darian Limb. The score remained the same till with 55 seconds left Jillian Rops stripped a Saugeen defender of the puck and scored a wrap around empty netter.
