The Lambton Sting Minor Bantam's competed in the Alliance Showcase event over the weekend in Cambridge.  All 12 of the Alliance teams participated in the event with each club playing 4 games that count towards the regular season standings.   The Sting had a slow start as they dropped both games on Saturday before rebounding with a much stronger effort Sunday that resulted in a pair of ties.
Lambton opened against the Kitchener Jr Rangers on Saturday morning  and lost a hard fought game by a 2-1 score.    Nick Steeves scored the Sting goal with assists going to Jack Cronk and Jacob Rochford.  Liam McCarthy had a strong game in goal and made a number of big saves.  Defenseman Kyle Kachan was named the Sting player of the game.
Next up was Waterloo and the Sting competed well for 2 periods, finishing the second trailing 2-1.   Waterloo scored 3 more times in the third period as Sting goalie Luc Thorne-Smith received little support from his teammates.  Hunter Monkhouse was named the Sting player of the game and he was also the lone Lambton goalscorer.  Cronk and Nolan DeGurse earned helpers.
On Sunday morning the Sting played an outstanding game against the Hamilton Huskies and earned a 1-1 tie thanks to a goal in the final minute from Christian Froese.  DeGurse and Wesley Griffiths picked up the assists on the tying goal which was scored with netminder McCarthy on the bench in favour of an extra skater.  McCarthy was named player of the game for the Sting.
Sunday afternoon the Sting played their final game of the event against the Huron Perth Lakers.   Thorne-Smith suffered an equipment issue in the warm up and Liam McCarthy was back between the pipes for his second game of the day.   McCarthy stopped all 36 shots he faced as the Sting and Lakers played to a scoreless tie.   The Sting penalty killers were outstanding in the game as they successfully killed off a 5-on-3 in the second period that lasted for over 3 minutes.   McCarthy earned player of the game honours for the second time Sunday.
