On Saturday morning, the Sting would put in a solid effort against Honeybaked, but lose by a final score of 4 1.  Nolan Farr would score the lone goal in this game, with Jake Vince picking up the assist.  In the afternoon, the boys were determined to pick up a win and they would be rewarded in defeating the St. Louis Blues by a final score of 5 2.  Lambton would fall behind early, but would bounce back with 3 goals in the 2nd period and 2 goals in the 3rd to take the win.  Scoring the goals in this game were Joey Ferrera, Cameron Adam, Cameron Rombouts, Dante Fuoco and Nolan Farr.  Cameron Adam would also earn 2 assists, with single assists going to Joe Correia, Lucas Knowles, Theo Crombeen, Cameron Rombouts, Jake Vince and Josh Vale. 

 

Lambton would finish the round robin portion of the tournament seeded 4th of the 6 Canadian teams and would face the 4th ranked American team, the Philadelpia Little Flyers on Sunday morning.  The Sting would fall behind by a 3 0 margin in this game before putting a late 3rd period surge together in which Theo Crombeen and Nolan Farr would score to narrow the margin to 3 2.  The boys would pressure to the final buzzer with the goalie pulled for an extra attacker, but would fall by a final score of 3 2.  Joe Correia would receive 2 assists in this game, while Jordan Hurtubise and Alec Trusler would each pick up 1 assist.
