Lady Sting Peewee B shut out vs Ayr
andrew brethauer February 3rd, 2012

Sarnia, ON - The Sarnia Jr. Lady Sting lost their second game in the Peewee B division of the Girls Silver Stick tournament, dropping a 5-0 decision to the Ayr Rockets Friday night at the Sarnia Arena.

The Lady Sting dropped a 6-0 game to Ilderton in the early mooring, and have yet to score in the tournament thus far.

In the first period, Katherine Birkby put the Rockets ahead 1-0, while the Lady Sting put in a strong effort trying to tie the game back up before the period would end.

In the second, Ayr would come out with two goals, as Ally Hutchings would deflect a point shot past Sting goalie Gillian Verberg-Buchan giving the Rockets a 2-0 lead. Ayr would get a second goal after a faceoff in the Sarnia zone would produce the puck in the slot where Alyssa Roth would get a shot past the Sarnia goalie to make it a 3-0 lead after the second period.

In the third the Rockets would again find success off the faceoff, as a faceoff win would put the puck in front of the goal where Mikaela Moore would put a shot in for the fourth Rocket goal.

Sarnia could not catch a break late in the third, as a scramble behind the net would flip the puck in front of the goal where Hutchings would score her second of the game in what would be the final goal in a 5-0 final.

"Our girls played not to bad, they played against a really solid opponent," said Sting Head Coach Ian Foss. "Our girls made a solid effort but we just couldn't put the puck in the net."

Despite allowing 11 goals in two tournament games, Foss comments that his team is a young team with only four girls on the team being major peewee while the rest are minor peewees. So this year may not be their year to win it all, but rather Foss says he is using it as a learning experience.

"They have a lot of potential for next year," said Foss. "It's a great learning experience. The girls have come a long way. It is just a matter of going in each game and playing hard. The girls just need to step it up a little bit. Forecheck harder, maintain that back check and as long as they give the effort they can play with anybody."

Sarnia will finish off their round robin play on Saturday with a game against Clearview at 9:15am at Germain.
