September 30, 2012  by n. mcintosh

Sarnia Sting Minor Midgets edged Cambridge Hawks 2-1 in a penalty filled Alliance league game Saturday afternoon at Sarnia Arena. Cole Lauzon was sharp in net as the Hawks outshot the Sting 7 to 3 in the scoreless first period. Sarnia endured 5 penalties while Cambridge were handed 3.

 The second period heated up with more penalty calls of tripping and head checks. Shortly after a power play ended, Nolan Riley put a move on Blair Wickett in the Cambridge net and fired the puck home low to the goalie’s right side. Jeff Williams and Cullen Smith drew assists on the goal at 7:26. Three more penalties for Sarnia and two more for Cambridge followed in the second. The Hawks held a 16 to 10 shot on goal advantage after two.

Sarnia’s defense held early in the third through pressure from the Hawks as they killed off penalties for slashing and hooking. Cambridge tied the score at 6:10 of the third on Jake Hussy’s hard shot from near the boards. While  number 7 for Cambridge was in the box for slashing, Sarnia scored a power play goal which proved to be the winner. Richard McIntosh took a pass across the ice from Dillon Saunders and fired a low shot past Wickett’s left pad for the goal at 4:50. Nolan Riley also drew an assist on the play. In spite of Drew Morgan being hurt by rough play and Kevin Durco being cross checked at the end of the game, Sarnia prevailed for the victory. 26 minutes in penalties were called on Sarnia and the same on Cambridge including a hitting from behind ejection. The Hawks outshot the Sting 25 to 18 in the hockey game.

The Jr Sting are back in action on Sunday (Sept 30) hosting the Brantford 99ers at 6:00 pm at Sarnia Arena.
