Sarnia Jr Sting Minor Atom MD back in action
January 19, 2012


After a short lay-off, the Jr. Sting were back in action hosting the Stratford Warriors at the Old Barn (Sarnia Arena). Sarnia was coming off a loss and were looking to get back in the win column.
 
The boys showed great spirit and enthusiasm from the onset and were looking to score that elusive first goal. Half way through the first period, their prayers would be answered, when winger Noah Porter would fire a shot outside the circle which would elude the Warrior goalie. Stratford would answer back and tie the game at one a piece.
 
Sarnia would fire into the second period by applying great pressure and solid forechecking. Their efforts were once again rewarded as Sting defenseman Lleyton Williams would carry the puck into the Warrior end and slot the wrist shot over the outstretched hands of the netminder. Two minutes later, forward Jacob Gould would add to the Sarnia lead as he fired the perfect shot into the back of the net. Sarnia would continue dominating play in the second, and once again Llyeton Williams would notch his second of the game firing a shot from the point. The second period would close out with Sarnia up by three goals.
 
Stratford would add a late goal in the third but that was as close as they would come as Sarnia shut the door! Defense played extremely well as Sting goalie Ian Stouth would be rewarded with the win.
 
Due to the major SilverStick tournament in the area, the Jr. Sting will not see action till Monday January 23rd against the London Bandits Black.
