Rochester Rattlers Got Shaken by Sarnia Minor Midget

Tuesday January 29, 2013

Sarnia Sting Minor Midgets were home Saturday afternoon at Sarnia Arena to Rochester Rattlers in an international exhibition game. The Rattlers in their purple jerseys were short 5 players due to illness and that may have been their downfall as the Sting took a 4-2 win.

In the first after a couple of exchanges of penalties, Rochester scored the opening goal on the power play with 2:18 to go in the period. Devin Butler scored early in the second at 14:19 to tie the score assisted by Adriano Fuoco and Mike Pearce. Rochester went ahead again at 9:57 but it didnít last long. Blain Adams fired one in at 7:28 assisted by Tyler Drury to tie the game at 2. Being an exhibition game, Sarnia switched goalies from Mat Szabo to Cole Lauzon after the goal. A short time later Drew Morgan laid a huge body check on a Rochester player in our end sending him airborne.

After a pair of penalties in the third, Dillon Saunders broke the tie with a goal at 12:01 assisted by Jeff Williams and Devin Butler. Jeff then put the game away with a goal at 6:50 assisted again by Devin. Sarnia outshot the Rattlers 29 to 23 on the game.
