Minor Atom Jr. Sting AAA Split Games

tuesday november 25, 2014

The Lambton Minor Atom AAA team sponsored by the Sarnia Sting split a pair of games over the weekend in Alliance hockey league action.


In their first game on Saturday the Jr. Sting took a 4 - 2 win at home against the Windsor Jr. Spitfires.

“Good all-around effort by the team," Head Coach Cory Pageau said  "They jumped out to an early lead and played smart, hard, hockey the rest of the way."

Jaxon Priddle led the Jr. Sting scoring 2 goals with singles by Tanner Winegard and Garrett Pearce.

Earning assists on the goals were Cameron McCarthy with 2 and Tanner Winegard, Nolan Mumford, Aaron Shanks, Ryan Vidler, Isaac Oliphant and Lucas Gaspari earning singles.


Carter La Rocque earned the win in net and was name as one of three hardest worker award recipients.  Other two players earning the award in the game were Jaxon Priddle and Aaron Shanks.

"Solid net minding from La Rocque coupled with a better defensive awareness, led to the win.” Pageau said.


In the second game on the weekend the team played a strong game but came up short with 3 - 2 loss in Waterloo.  Waterloo is 2nd in the East Division with a record of 11-3-2.

"Waterloo is one of the premier teams in the league and we showed we can play with anybody." Pageau said

Jaxon Priddle and Adam Osler scored for the Jr. Sting with Isaac Oliphant and Tanner Winegard assisting on the goals.

Caiden Smith took the loss in net.


"Smit kept us in the game but we could not capitalize enough." Pageau said


Smit also earned the Hardest worker award along with Ryan Pageau and Landon Buckingham.

"We suffered a 13 – 1 defeat to them (Waterloo) earlier in the year, so we have closed the gap considerably and will be looking to continue to raise the bar the rest of the season.”

The Minor Atoms are now in 4th spot in the West Division with a record of 5-10.  Next up for the Jr. Sting is an away game against Elgin Middlesex on Saturday.
