Sarnia Jr Sting Mnor Atom MD's turned it around

December 20,  2011



The Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atom MD's host the second place North London Nationals at the Sarnia Arena this past Saturday December 17th. Sarnia was coming off of a loss and the boys were looking to turn things around.
 
From the opening face-off the Sting were all business dominating play with aggressive forechecking. Many offensive quality scoring chances were evident in the first period but London held firm to keep Sarnia off the score sheet.
 
Sarnia would open the scoring at the four minute mark of the second period when right winger Chandler Haagsma made the perfect rush up ice and finished with the high backhander, stick side, which eluded the National goalie. Assisting on the goal were Erin Murray and Kristian Spitzig. Three minutes later Sting centerman Cayden Wise would bang home a rebound to put Sarnia up by two. Assisting on his goal were Kristian Spitzig and Lleyton Williams. Thirty seconds later Sarnia continued the flurry, with Spitzig earning his third point of the afternoon firing a wrist shot past the London goaltender. Assisting on the Spitzig goal were Cayden Wise and Connor Antosiak. The Sting continued to pressure and were rewarded when winger Adam Ikert picked up the loose puck and wristed a shot into the left corner of the net (assists went to Alex Newall and Noah Porter). London would net a goal, late in the second to bring their team within three.
 
The Nationals would add two more in the third but would fail to equalize as Sarnia would close the door. Strong performances were evident by all members including Sarnia Goalie Ian Stouth. The Sting look to keep pace in the standings as they travel to London Wednesday night to face Oakridge.

Final Score - Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atom 4 - North London Nationals 3.
