Cater Pearen earned the win for the Chiefs made 11 saves.


On Sunday the Jr. Sting returned home and faced the Brantford 99er's and earned their first win of the season with a final score of 6 - 3.


"It was a lot better game." Head Coach Jordan Pennesi said "The first two periods I thought we played really well. We were really hustling for pucks and winning the one on one battles and we had a lot of puck possession in their end that created a lot of opportunities and chances."



Jared Pageau gave the Jr. Sting a 1 - 0 lead after the first period with Ben Schoch assisting.  In the second the Jr. Sting scored 3 unanswered goals to widen the lead to 4 - 0.  Cameron Rannie took a pass from Fraser Wilson and hit the opening in the first goal.  On a power play  Eric Cardinal scored scored assisted by Noah Campbell and Rannie and the final goal of the period was scored by Pageau from Rannie and Josh Barraclough.


Third period action saw the Jr. Sting let up and Brantford clawed their way back and scored 3 goals to put the pressure on the Jr. Sting.  Jacob Luke, Kurtis Christo and Shaun General each scored for the 99er's.  In the attempt to tie Brantford pulled their goalie only to have Josh Barraclough score into the empty net. With :25 seconds remaining Jared Pageau scored his third of the game for the hat trick.



"We were kind of going through the motions." Pennesi commented about the 3 third period goals Brantford scored. "They were beating us to the puck and we were kind of lazy hoping someone else was going to get there for the puck. But after they made it 4 - 3 it things kind of calmed down a little bit and our 5th goal helped. I told them in the room after they just go to stay focus no matter what he score.  We got to play our game the whole 45 minutes and just make sure you stay focus and on the same page.



Chaska Theil earned the win in net for the Jr. Sting, Cameron Gratton took the loss.


The Jr. Sting record now stands at 1 - 2 - 1.


League action continues next weekend in Hamilton when the team competes in the Alliance league showcase.  The team will compete in four games that begin on Friday and continue through to Sunday. (Sep 26-28)


Showcase weekend will also be attended by OHL Scouts.  Pennesi advice to his players is "Just play the same game and stay focus and work together as a team, when you work together as a team you look good yourself."
