Sarnia, ON - The Lambton Jr. Sting and the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs tied 3-3 in game three of the AAA hockey playdowns Monday night in Sarnia.

In the second period, Elgin would take their first lead in the game as Russell Oldham made it 2-1 for the Chiefs. Lambton would respond quickly with their second power play goal of the game as Spencer Vandenboom tied it a 2-2. But the Chiefs would reclaim the lead minutes later as Peter Vanderwyst put them back in front 3-2 after the second period.

Lambton would press in the third for the game tying goal, and it would come midway through the period as Nolan DeGurse tied the game at 3-3.

Neither team would find the back of the net for the remainder of the game, and it would end in a 3-3 tie.
