The Sarnia Jr. Sting  Minor Atom MD's hosted Oakridge London on Saturday November 5th, at the Sarnia Arena. This was their second meeting of the season

with Sarnia winning the previous game.

 

Surprisingly, the Sting started slowly allowing Oakridge to score at the 27 second mark of the opening puck drop.  A shocked Sarnia MD team regrouped and pressured Oakridge seeking the equalizer. Numerous chances arose however the period ended with the Sting trailing by one.

 

Oakridge would add to their lead 7 mins. in the second when a London winger found himself on a partial breakaway and netted the wrist shot behind the Sarnia goalie.  Sarnia continued pressing and were finally rewarded when winger Kurtis Allardyce skated around the Aero defense and fired a shot into the top right corner of the London net.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Aeros regained the two goal lead scoring early in the third period however the Sting never gave up. Half way through the period,  Sarnia left winger Lleyton Williams stick-handled around three London players and wristed a bullet behind a surprised Aero goalie. The goal seemed to ignite Sarnia's spirit as the team fought hard looking to tie the game. Sarnia thought they equalized the score late in the third period when winger Mateo Troiani wristed a shot over the Aero goalie which seemed to drop behind the goal-line. One referee acknowledged the goal while another called it off. Play resumed and although they fought valiantly, time ran out! 

Final score :  Sarnia Sting Minor Atoms 2 - Oakridge Aeros 3.
