Lambton Jr. Sting AAA Minor Atom Season Openers

tuesday september 9, 2014

The Lambton Minor Atom AAA sponsored by the OHL Jr A Sarnia Sting opened their season on the weekend with a pair of home games.

In the first game the Jr. Sting hosted the Brantford 99's on Saturday at the RBC Centre.  The two teams were tied in the third period but after taking a tough four minute call with five minutes remaining the 99's scored two  late goals to take a 7 - 5 win.

Isaac Oliphant led the Jr. Sting with two goals and singles by Ryan Pageau, Adam Osler and Aaron Shanks.  Earning assists were Jaxon Priddle, Bo Doxtator, Ryan Vidler, Garrett Pearce (2), Landon Buckingham and Aaron Shanks.

The team's hardest worker awards in this game was earned by Adam Maitland, Ryan Vidler and Isaac Oliphant.

“Kids played a strong game for their first AAA hockey game." Head Coach Cory Pageau said  "Strong offensive effort,  but we will need to tighten things up around the net."   

Game two on Sunday found the young team back on the ice facing the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs where the Jr. Sting were downed by a score of 8 - 4.

“After a strong effort in defeat versus Brantford, I was a little disappointed in the overall effort of the club." Pageau said  "However nine goals scored in the first two regular season game is something to build off of."

Nolan Mumford scored two goals in the game with singles by Ryan Vidler and Cameron McCarthy.

Adam Maitland, Luke Doan, Adam Osler, Tanner Winegard and Aaron Shanks assisted on the goals.

The Hardest worker awards were presented to Isaac Oliphant and Nolan Mumford.

"Looking forward to a good week of practice and off-ice conditioning." Pageau said about the upcoming week before their next game on Saturday September 13. The Jr. Sting are back at home when they host the Cambridge Hawks at 12:00 pm on Rink 1 at the RBC Centre.
