Belleville, ON - The Sarnia Sting picked up a point on Saturday night, but would still drop their fourth in a row after a 5-4 shootout loss to the Belleville Bulls.

After a scoreless first period, Ludvig Rensfeldt would open the scoring two minutes into the second period with his 13th of the season. The Bulls would respond as Garrett Hooey would add his 10th of the year in the middle of the period to tie it at 1-1.

A minute later Rensfeldt would add his second of the game to put Sarnia back in front, and a minute after that, Dominic Alberga would put the Sting up by two with his 11th of the season, as Sarnia led 3-1. Belleville would get one back as Jordan Mayer would beat JP Anderson, but the Sting would lead 3-2 after two periods.

In the third, the Bulls would tie it up again, as Brendan Gaunce scored his 22nd of the year just 32 seconds into the period. But three minutes later Ryan Spooner would score his 19th to put Sarnia in front for the third time in the game. The lead however would not last as Brady Austin would tie it once more, sending the game into overtime and shootouts.

Sarnia who has not been strong on the shootouts, opened with Craig Hottot scoring, and Anderson stopped Jordan Mayer. But Nail Yakupov and Ryan Spooner would each miss on their shots, while Gaunce and Joesph Cramarossa would each score, giving the Bulls the extra point with the victory.
