Lambton Jr. Sting Major Midgets Edged Out Waterloo
tuesday october 28, 2014

The Lambton Jr. Sting Major Midgets and Waterloo Wolves were tied 3-3 heading into the last minute of play until Jarret Marks scored on a power play with :32 seconds remaining on the clock to give the Jr. Sting their 9th Alliance win of the season.

“I thought we played pretty well .” Head Coach Jonathan Taylor said. “That put us at 13 – 2 – 3 for the season.” Those figures include tournament results. In League standings the team is now 9 - 1 - 0.

The two teams struggled in the first two periods due to an arena window malfunction the game was moved over to the second rink to finish the first period and then played a full second.

In the third the action resumed on the main rink and Dawson Cook scored at 1:59 to give the Jr. Sting the early lead.  Waterloo answered back a minute later to tie things up then took the lead at 5:23.  Jackson Keller and Will Shaver scored for the Wolves. Then at 7:47 Marco Mini scored a power play to tie the game for the second time and Marks finished it off.

“Our goal tending was solid today.” Taylor said  "I thought Shane (Battler) had a really good game and help us out with a couple of key saves in the second period.”

Battler is now 5 – 0 for the season.

The Major Midgets will be put to the test next weekend as they have three games schedule starting on Friday night and finishing up on Sunday.

Friday’s game is against the London Jr. Knights (11-1-0) that will be played in Mooretown due to the U17 World Hockey Challenge being played on their home ice. 

"Friday's game will be a real test for us." Taylor said "I think we played a couple of easy teams now so we’ll see if we can step up our game to play against London."

On Saturday the team will head to Brantford (1-10-1) , then on to Kitchener (4-4-0) on Sunday.
