Sting winning streak comes to an end
andrew brethauer January 20th, 2012

Sarnia, ON -  The Sarnia Sting recent win streak has ended at three after a 3-2 loss to the Windsor Spitfires on Friday night, which all spells the end of a Sting five game home stand.

Sarnia's Ludvig Rensfeldt got the scoring started quickly as the Swedish born player scored his 12th of the season 1:02 into the first period of play.

It would take the Spitfires the rest of the period to finally get the tie on the board, as Chris Marchese scored his 13th of the season with under two minutes remaining to tie the game at 1-1 heading into the second.

The score would remained tied for most of the period until Alex  Khokhlachev would find a scrambled puck in front and put a wrist shot past JP Andersons to put the Spitfires ahead by one after two periods.

In the third, former Sarnia Sting member Zach McQueen would put the Spitfires ahead by two goals with his mid third period goal but Sarnia would cut it back down to one goal quickly as Chris Duinick would score his 5th of the season.

Sarnia would end falling short of the victory despite out shooting the Spitfires 37-24.

JP Anderson made 21 saves in his third loss as a member of the Sarnia Sting.

Sarnia will now play out the remainder of January on the road, heading to Guelph on Sunday, and next week having three games in a row starting Friday against Ottawa, Belleville and Kingston.
