Lambton Jr Sting AAA Midgets Edged Out London Jr Knights
saturday september 27, 2014


 


 

The Lambton Jr Sting are 2 - 0 in the early season after taking a 2 - 1 win over the London Jr. Knights at the RBC Centre Friday night.

 

"That was a great battle." Head coach Jonathan Taylor said "Anytime we can compete with London like that is awesome."

 

 

After a scoreless first period Jarret Marks was left wide open in front of the London netminder and the puck landed on his stick and he tapped it in for the first goal of the game at 12:56.  Alec DeKoning and Brock Perry earned assists on the play.  The Jr. Sting held on to the lead heading into the third period.

 

In the third Matt Macpherson tied things up for London at 10:11 but just over a minute later Dillon Saunders took the pass from Alec DeKoning and found the opening to give the Jr. Sting the 2 - 1 lead.  The Jr. Knights battle back and pulled their goalie in the closing minute but were denied after a few close chances and the Jr. Sting held on for the win.
 



London outshot Lambton 29 - 25.  Travis Moore earned the win in net for Lambton making 28 saves.  Zack Weir took the loss turning away 23 shots.

Lambton took a total of ten penalty minutes on ten infractions, London took six minutes on three infractions.

Lambton went scoreless on two power play opportunities, London went zero on four opportunities.

 

"I thought our officiating was great tonight and that helps when it's well officiated both ways." Taylor said "Even though we took a couple more penalties we got a few undisciplined that we got to work on a bit."

 

The Jr. Sting are on the road Sunday for their first road trip of the season traveling to Brantford to face the 99er's in their season/home opener. Taylor says that with the folding of Hamilton they should be a better team.

 

Lambton Notes:

  • This game saw the return of Tim Kaldeway who was released Thursday from the Lambton Shores Predators.  Kaldeway was released due to the signing of  Brenden Trottier who was released from the Sarnia Sting. "We were short one whole line so I'm glad to have Tim Kaldeway back with us." Taylor said   "He made a difference, with guys out of the line up it was great timing as he played for us last year and he knows all my systems."

  • With goalie Shayne Battler traveling with the Sarnia Sting this weekend Lambton picked up Jacob Wilkins from Sarnia AA as backup goalie for Lambton
