Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atom MD tied first place North London
sarniasports November 10, 2011
 

The Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atom MD's travelled to the Carling Arena Monday night to face the first place North London Nationals.  Sarnia was anxious for a win as they had lost their two previous league games.
 
The pace was quick and fast at the opening puck drop with solid chances on both sides of the rink. Strong goaltending and defense prevailed in the first period with no team scoring. There was no scoring in the second period, however lots of end to end action.
 
 At the 14th minute of the third period, North London opened the scoring when their forward found himself alone in front of the Sting net and wristed a shot past a sprawling Ian Stouth.  Sarnia would continue pressuring and eventually even the match when winger Kurtis Allardyce skated in alone on a breakaway and fired the perfect wrist shot passed the National goalie. Two minutes later London would regain their lead when they entered the Sarnia zone with a 3 on 1 break and finished with a wrist shot into the top corner of the Sting goal.  The goal would not suppress the Jr. Sting's spirits as the team continued to play hard.  At the 6 minute mark of the third, Sting center Jacob Gould would send a shot on net from above the face-off circle which deflected three times as the puck found its way behind a surprised North London goalie. As in many sports, sometimes teams need a little luck. Lady Luck shined on the Jr. Sting as they salvaged a point in North London. Final score : Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atoms  2 - North London Nationals  2 .
