Four goal second period gives Storm win in round robin play
andrew brethauer February 4th, 2012

Sarnia, ON - The St. Clair Storm finished their round robin play in the Midget B division with a 4-0 shutout victory over the Tillsonburg Lightning, helping to earn them a spot into the quarter finals of the Sarnia Girls Silver Stick tournament.

It was a physical game between the two teams who both fought for position and had their chances early in the first period. Both teams had power play opportunities, but they were turned aside, and after the first period the score remained 0-0.

In the second, the Storm came out firing quickly, as Claire Moran fired a wrist shot on net that Lightning goalie Antonia Matos got a small piece of, but it ended up in the back of the net for the St. Clair 1-0 lead.

Thirty seconds later the Storm would get a second one past Matos, as Stephanie McLachlin would pick up a redirected puck in the slot and fire another wrist shot on net to give the Storm a quick 2-0 lead in the second period.

St. Clair would not let up in the period, as Alisha Renaud would score a pair of goals for the Storm, first scoring on a shot form the point beating a screened Matos, while he second goal came from just inside in the blue line where a wrist shot would get past Matos for the fourth time, giving St. Clair a 4-0 lead after two period.

St. Clair goalie Sarah Maheu would keep the door closed for the third period, stopping all shots that came her way and earning the shutout, as the Storm finish off the round robin with a 4-0 victory.

"It was a rough game. We were lucky to score in the second, as we played terrible in the first," said coach John Dobson. "Luckily we were able to put the girls back on line and get going."

Dobson believes the Storm can win the tournament if they play their game, but would meet a tough Petrolia team in the quarter finals.

St. Clair won their first round robin game 6-0 over Saugeen, but dropped their second game to Walkerton 3-1.
