andrew brethauer January 22nd, 2012

Guelph, ON - The Sarnia Sting have lost two straight following a 3-1 loss to the Guelph Storm Sunday afternoon in Guelph.

Guelph got a very quick start on the Sting, scoring 23 seconds into the period as Hunter Garlent scored his 8th of the season to give the Storm a 1-0 lead.

The storm would make it a 2-0 lead following Zack Mitchell's 23rd goal of the year, but Sarnia would be able to get one with 12 seconds remaining in the first, as Connor Murphy scored his 3rd of the season on the power play to make it a one score game at the end of the first period.

Sarnia would get 12 shots in the second period but still could not find the back of the net. In two periods the Sting would out shoot the Storm 28-11, but Guelph still held the lead heading into the third.

In the third, Francis Menard would put the Storm back in front by two goals, scoring on the power play with just over two minutes remaining in the period. Sarnia could not capitalize on some late power plays, and would drop the game 3-1.

In total, Sarnia had 36 shots on net, while the Storm had 25. JP Anderson made 22 saves in the loss.

Sarnia is on the road next weekend, visiting Ottawa, Belleville and Kingston Friday through Sunday.
