NORTH BAY, ON- The Sarnia Sting fall short to the North Bay Battalion on Centennials alumni night by a score of 5-4 at the Memorial Gardens.

This is the Sting's second game on a three game road trip. The Sting hold a 1-1 record on this trip after yesterday's win against the Barrie Colts. Justin Fazio got the start playing back to back games after recording his first career OHL shutout the previous night.

The Sting came out firing on all cylinders in the first period maintaining offensive pressure for a majority of the first finishing with 8 shots to the opposing 6. Nikita Korostelev scored his first goal of the season on the powerplay that showed true promise throughout the game. Battalion goaltender Jake Smith stood his ground keeping the game even finishing with 26 saves.

The Battalion poured on the pressure towards the end of the second period, and maintained that pressure at the beginning of the third period scoring 3 goals in the final frame. The sting managed to keep up with the red hot Battalion after goals scored by Alex Black, Patrick White, and Anthony Salinitri. 

The game was a back and forth affair in the scoring chances department, but Sarnia managed to control the offensive pressure registering a game total of 30 shots comparing to the Battalion total of 19.

The sting wrap up the three game road trip on Sunday October 4th when they travel to Sudbury to take number one pick David Lebvin and the Wolves at 2pm. 

The Sting make the return home to the SSEC Friday October 9th when they take on the Hamilton Bulldogs for the first time in franchise history.  for tickets information go to www.sarniasting.com
