Lambton Jr. Sting Major Midgets Downed by Jr. Knights

sunday november 30, 2014


In Alliance Minor Hockey league action on Saturday the Lambton Jr. Sting Sting Major Midgets took a 5 - 3 loss against the league leaders London Jr. Knights at home at the RBC Centre.

"We were very shorthanded today with two and a half lines and two lines of D,"  Head coach Jonathan Taylor said "We had a couple guys out on suspensions, couple are sick,  a guy with a broken hand but no excuses, London was short as well we got to play harder."



Lambton had eleven players plus two goalies on the bench, London came to Sarnia with twelve players and two goalies.


The Jr. Knights scored a minute and five seconds into the game after a soft shot was redirected off of a Lambton stick that caught Lambton's netminder Shayne Battler off guard.  Then at 2:45 London beat Battler again to go up by two.  Things look to get worse as the Jr. Knights scored their third goal at 7:36 while playing shorthanded.  Lambton managed to get a goal in the first after Dawson Vautour found the opening in traffic.  Alec DeKoning and Brock Perry earned the assist on the play.


Scoring for London in the first period were Evan Hogg, Ryan Hopkins and Curtis Ferreira.



In the second at 6:14 the Jr. Sting would narrow the gap to 3 - 2 after Sean Ginnell picked up the pass from Ryan Greenaway just over the blue line and fought off a defender and skated in alone and scored.  Ryan Hopkins of London answered back with his second goal of the game at 13:53 to take a 4 - 2 lead and after a strong period by both sides the two teams headed into the third with London in the lead.



Action continued in the third  and at 14:55 Lambton narrowed the gap once again after Tim Kaldeway scored with Brock Perry and Sean Ginnell assisting.  London finished the game off at 17:03 after the Jr. Knights found themselves on a 2 - 1 situation and skated in for the goal.


"We came back and made it 4 - 3 in the third but just couldn't finish or just couldn't capitalize on a couple of opportunities that we did have." Taylor said

Lambton outshot London 36 - 30.  Shayne Battler made 25 saves for Lambton and Mike Weir of London earned the win making 33 saves.

London leads the Major Midget division with a record of 19-1-0.  Lambton is sitting in third spot with a 13-4-1-0 record, six points but two games back behind Windsor (16-3-0-1).



The team is back in action on Sunday when they travel to Cambridge to take on the Hawks.

"We usually do ok against them (Cambridge), they are a little lower than us in the standings." Taylor said

Cambridge is sitting in last place with a record of 2-13-2-1. 

"But right now it's anybodies game, it's who shows up to play." Taylor added.
