Lambton Minor Midget AAA Season/Home Opener
tuesday september 16, 2014


The Lambton Jr. Sting Minor Midget began the Alliance Hockey League season with a 3 - 3 tie in Cambridge on Saturday against the Hawks.

The Jr. Sting came back from a 2 - 0 deficit after the first period and scored two goals in the second before the Hawks regained the lead before the period ended.  Fraser Wilson scored the first goal for the Jr. Sting on an unassisted power play goal and Josh Barraclough from Max Steeves scored the second.  In the third on a power play breakaway Max Steeves scored the tying goal.



"I thought we played really well." Head Coach Jordan Penessi said "First period we were kind of gripping our sticks a little too tightly and looked a little more nervous but we got a little more comfortable as the game went on. Being down 2 - 0 it was good to come back and tie it 3 - 3."


Aiden Matekovic scored two for Cambridge and Ben Maidment added the single.


Lambton outshot Cambridge 27 - 22.  Netminders Austin McLeod made nineteen saves for Lambton and Bryson Lee made twenty-four.


Lambton took a total of sixty six minutes in penalty time that included two players sitting out for the next two games. Cambridge tallied sixty-eight minutes in penalties.



In their second game on Sunday at the RBC Centre and with two men short the Jr. Sting hosted the Waterloo Huskies in their home opener and suffered a 5 - 0 loss.


"I thought we played ok in the first period." Pennesi said  "After Waterloo got the second goal at the beginning of the second period we let down after that."


Lambton suffered a total of twenty four minutes in penalties on nine infractions, Waterloo took four minutes on two infractions.  Waterloo scored once on seven power play opportunities.  Lambton went zero on two opportunities.


"I thought having a short bench then having penalties we got tired towards the third period." Pennesi said "I thought we did a good job killing our 5 on 3 but too many penalties are going to cost."



The Jr. Sting are back in action next weekend with the first on the road Saturday September 20 against Elgin Middlesex and back at home on Sunday when they host the Brantford 99ers at the RBC Centre with a game start at 3:30 pm.
