It Wasn't pretty.... but they got the
The Jr. Sting Minor PeeWee MD team played their second
exhibition game of the season vs. The Mooretown Storm on Friday
night at the Old Barn in Sarnia.
The game started out on a positive note, the fans were ready,
the music was rocking, and the Sting were ready to Roll.
The coaching staff did a bit of juggling, moving some players
around, seeing what combinations would start to click.
The Jr Sting got off to a game opening lead at 6:03, when
Spencer Baillie got his first of the year, on a pass from Hayden
Griffin. The Storm was not going to go out quietly, and tied the
game at 3:53 on a goal from Hunter Round, with assists to Jake
Vandersteen and Jeffery Barclay.
The game went back/forth, with each team trying to find its way.
Tyler Talbot - Ellis was throwing his body all over, with Colin
Zimmer matching him for body checks. The Storm got a
number of opportunities, however Cam Stevens kept the game tied
Later in the Second, the Sting finally amassed some pressure in
the Storm end. The puck was kept in by the Jr Sting D, and went
over to Evan Trigatti who passed over to Kaleb Zeytinoglu. Kaleb
handed it over to Cole Goossens, who fired a low shot past the
goalie to give the Sting the lead at 4:14 of the Second. Hayden
Griffin and Josh D'Angela had a few great chances in the third,
but were not able to bang the puck home !
The Game Ended on a positive note for the Sting..... JR.
STING 2 - Storm - 1
The Coaching staff was happy an ugly one was over, and had great
praise for the Storm team that had just started playing together
in the past weeks.
