Sloppy Win for Major Midgets AAA

Sunday November 23, 2014


The Lambton Jr. Sting Major Midget AAA team defeated the Huron Perth Jr. Cullitons 4-3 on Saturday afternoon at the RBC Centre in Alliance League hockey action.


The Jr. Sting got off to a good start taking control of the first period with most of the action deep in the Jr. Cullitons end however the Jr. Sting were unable to capitalized on many good opportunities.



"We got to score when we have the opportunities," Assistant Coach Glenn LeCour said "We had four or five breakaways that we could have easily put that game out of reach early."


The Jr. Sting did score first at 4:35 in the first period by Marco Mini assisted by Dillon Saunders and Sean Ginnell. But on a fluke goal the Jr. Cullitons evened the score a minute and two seconds after the puck was shot into the end and bounced off the boards and hit goalie Shayne Battler in the back of the leg and bounced in. 


The score remained tied at 1 - 1 heading into the second and the same after a scoreless second period.



The highlight goal of the night was scored by Brock Perry at 12:05 in the third after taking a perfect pass from Sean Ginnell then Perry took aim and made no mistake and scored.  Mathew Stevens was also credited with an assist on the play. Less than a minute later on another misfortune play when the puck ricocheted off a couple of Lambton players that found it's way into the net to even the score.


At 17:20 Huron Perth took the lead for the first time then just over a minute later Jarret Marks evened things up scoring an unassisted goal.  As the clock was winding down and it appeared the game would go into overtime Sean Ginnell scored an unassisted goal with just 23 seconds left in the game to give the Jr. Sting the win.



"A win's a win that's exactly how you got to look at it, its 2 points," LeCour said "They put the pressure on us and we knew we were lucky."

Shayne Battler earned his 7th win in net for the Lambton that gives him a record of 7-1 so far this season.

Lambton's record is now 13 - 3 and currently in third place. 

On Sunday the team travels to Waterloo to take on the Wolves who are in 6th place with a record of 3 - 12.

"Waterloo they're tough. They are getting better they had a rough start but they got some players back from Jr. B so we are expecting a tough game and we got to come out and be ready to play."
