Sarnia Express climb to second place after weekend victories
DECEMBER 8,  2011

Sarnia Express travelled to Kitchener for a pair of games on Sunday December 4th.
Sarnia began with an early morning game with the Kitchener Rangers. The Express had a tough game and were fortunate to pull off a 1-0 win. The lone goal was a beauty by Nicky Futers, who went end to end and roofed it on the backhand. Defensemen Brooke Clubb and Denise Coubough assisted. Kate Rawlings had another great game in net to earn her third shutout of the year.
Game two the Express faced the always strong Kitchener Wild, this game would be the rubber match as each team had come away with a victory from their previous two meetings. This time Sarnia would be the victors.

Alicia MacDougall would open the scoring with a hard snapshot over the net minders shoulder into the top corner. Brandi Warner set her up with a perfect pass to pick up the assist. Denise Coubough also assisted on the goal. Shortly after Alicia MacDougall would score her second of the game after fighting off the Kitchener defense, to once again place one top corner. It was unassisted. Brooke Clubb would bring the Express up 3-0 with her always dangerous slapshot. Teresa Futers got the lone assist. The Wild would come back and threaten in the third scoring a pair, but Sarnia held it together on a really well played game to bring home the 3 - 2 win. Lisa Meyers as always was great in net for the Express.
The pair of victories puts Sarnia in second place, only 3 points behind Aylmer. They travel to Strathroy for their first meeting with the Bluewater Hawks Sunday December 11th.
