The Lambton AAA
Midget’s finish their Preseason schedule with a 5-0 record
outscoring their opponents 16 - 4
On Saturday Sept 15,
9am – The Midgets boarded the bus for what would prove to be a day
that would show the coaching staff that this year’s team would be
relentless in their pursuit of the Alliance championship.
Brantford - From the
moment the puck dropped it was apparent that the boys were fired up
for this game. A relentless attack resulted in the stings first goal
less than 6 minutes into the game and the second just two minutes
later. Two power play and one regular strength goal in the second
was all that was required to end this game as the clock moved to
straight time and the Midgets ran the clock down.

With a quick meal on
the road the team headed straight to Windsor for their first look at
the Jr. Spitfires.
Windsor 7:00 pm – Any
worries that the Jr. Sting would have a slow start after already
playing a game and spending 3 hours on the bus were quickly
dismissed as the Jr. Sting went straight after Windsor right from
the puck drop.
This was to be a
different game as the Jr. Spits are a big physical team with
outstanding goaltending. However this was just the test the Jr.
Sting were looking for as they demonstrated to coach Taylor that
they would not be intimidated by anyone and showed the Jr. Spits
that this years team plays hard, physical in your face hockey shift
Although giving up
the first goal to the Windsor power play the Jr. Sting never varied
from their game plan and battled back to a 4-2 win.
