Tough Weekend for Lambton Minor Bantams
Monday October 27, 2014

The Lambton Jr Sting Minor Bantams dropped a pair of games over the weekend falling 5-3 at home to Cambridge Saturday and losing 6-2 to Elgin Middlesex in Komoka Sunday.

The Jr Sting were short-benched Saturday against the East Division leading Hawks as 5 players were sidelined either by injury or suspension but they still managed to play a solid game.   Cambridge took a 3-0 lead early with 3 power play goals, 2 of them while up two men but the Sting answered with a goal late in the opening period unassisted from Hunter Monkhouse.
Sting goaltender Liam McCarthy had an outstanding second and third periods keeping his club in the game.   Monkhouse would cut the Cambridge lead to 3-2 with his second goal of the game, on the power play, early in the second period.  Thomas Cardinal picked up the assist.  However, Cambridge restored itís 2 goal lead late in the period thanks to another goal while enjoying a 2 man advantage.

Jacob Rochford got the Sting back to within 1 goal early in the third period after converting a pass from Christian Froese.  Bryce Twohey also assisted on the goal but that was as close as the Sting would get.  Cambridge sealed the victory with an empty net goal in the closing seconds to make it a 5-3 final.
On Sunday the short benched Jr Sting got 2 players back from suspension but still entered the game missing 3 others.   The Sting led 1-0 after the first period on a power play goal from Jack Cronk assisted by Hunter Monkhouse and Carter Kiriakakos.   Elgin tied the game midway through the second but the Sting went up 2-1 later in the period on a Bryce Twohey goal assisted by Cronk.

The Sting got in to penalty trouble late in the second period and found themselves done 2 men.  Elgin scored twice to take the lead 3-2 and from there the Sting stopped skating and were badly outplayed in the third period.

The Minor Bantams have 2 road games next weekend with trips to Windsor on Saturday before returning to Komoka for a rematch with Elgin-Middlesex on Sunday.
