Lambton AAA Major Midgets are  3 - 0 in Early Season
Monday september 29, 2014

In a penalty filled game the Major Midgets won their second game on the weekend in Brantford after defeating the 99er's 6 - 2.

Lambton took a 3 - 0 lead after the first period, both sides scored one in the second and Lambton added two to Brantford's single in the third.

Out of the six goals scored by Lambton, two were shorthanded goals with Sean Ginnell and Ryan Greenaway scoring and three were on power plays by Alec Dekoning, Jarret Marks and Jake Motts.  Dillon Saunders added the final goal full strength.

"It's great when you are getting scoring from all four lines, very hard to defend against." Head Coach Jonathan Taylor said

 Both of Brantford goals were scored on the power play with Nick Visser and Jacob Balca scoring.

Lambton suffered a total of sixty-one minutes on twenty-one infractions in penalties, Brantford tallied forty-one minutes on fifteen infractions.

"Very scrambled game due to over officiating both ways." Taylor said "We will discuss this at the Alliance this coming weekend as our purpose at the Midget level is to develop players for higher levels of hockey. I'm sure that if yesterday's game was a Junior A or B game there would have been four penalties the entire game. Somehow we have to bridge the huge gap in officiating between Midget AAA and the Junior level."

 Earning the win in net for Lambton was Shayne Battler turning away 28 of 30 shots.  Andrew Hawkins took the loss made 31 saves on 37 shots.

"Once again our goal tending was strong making some key saves when the score was 4-2." Taylor said

Lambton is currently in the top spot with a record of 3 - 0 in the Alliance League and will travel to Brantford next weekend to participate in the Annual Alliance Face Off Showcase beginning on Friday Oct 3 and ends on Sunday October 5.  The team will go up against Kitchener on Friday, Cambridge and Brantford on Saturday and Waterloo on Sunday.
