Sarnia, ON - The Sarnia Lady Jr. Sting picked up their second win of the Girl's Silver Stick tournament in the Midget A division, defeating the Clearview Ice Cats 5-1 Friday afternoon at the Clearwater Arena.

The Lady Sting controlled the tempo of the game, and with a 5-2 victory earlier in the day over over Chicago, the Sting have scored 10 goals in their first two games.

"Our girls are playing really well, they are moving the puck, keeping their feet moving, taking the puck to the net, getting a lot of shots," said Head Coach John Baker. "It's a good two way game we are playing right now and it shows on the scoreboard."

Sarnia opened the scoring in the first as Nicki Parkes fought off defenders on a partial breakaway, and put a wrist shot over the Ice Cats goalie for the early 1-0 lead.

The Sting kept the attack on all period, hammering shots on net from all angles. A turnover in the Ice Cats zone would land on the stick of Jenelle Labadie in the slot whose wrist shot got past the goalie to give Sarnia a 2-0 lead at the end of the first.

In the second, Labadie would pick up her second of the game, connecting with Parkes on a 2-on-1 to score Sarnia's third goal.

Melissa Plug would put the Lady Sting ahead 4-0 after she came from behind the net and got two chances at the puck and put in under the pads of the goalie.

In the third, Sarnia would get on the power play, and Labadie would get a shot off in the slot that would be stopped by Parkes who would then put in five hole on the goalie to pick up her second of the game.

Sarnia goalie Jordan Henry had the shutout till late in the third, but a shot from the blue line would get past as Michelle Morrison got Clearview on the board. There would be no time for a comeback, as the Lady Sting held control and skated to the 5-1 victory.

Labadie finished the game with two goals and two assists for a four point game, while Parkes also picked up a multi point game with two goals and an assist in the victory.

"Ten goals in two games, we couldn't ask for much better then this," said Baker. "The way we have been playing the last month and a half and the teams that are here, we are definitley one of the top contenders to win this tournament."

Sarnia will finish their round robin tomorrow at 9:20 against Saugeen.
