Jr. Sting Major Atom MD tied their arch rivals 4 - 4
sarniasports November 11, 2011

On Thursday November 10 at the Germain Arena the Jr. Sting Major Atom MD faced their arch rivals the North London Nationals.

North London and Sarnia sit in first and second place respectively in the Alliance MD West division and have a history of hard fought close games. Despite initial indications that this would be a easy win for North the Jr. Sting came back from a 3 goal deficit to tie the game and salvage a single point.

The Nationals started the game with plenty of energy, scoring within the first minute of the first period. North London kept the pressure on and added to their total half way through the first frame on another goal mouth scramble. With two minutes left in the period Mat Waun surprised the London goalie with a low hard shot on a nice pass from Spencer Baillie. Collin Zimmer was also credited with an assist on the play. The Nationals came right back and capitalized on some miscommunication between the Sarnia net minder and his defence, pouncing on a loose puck and depositing it in the back on the Sarnia cage.

The Nationals would add to their goal total six minutes into the second period making it 4 1 for the visitors.

Cameron Stevens played well in net despite allowing 4 goals as London out-chanced the Jr. Sting for the first half of the game. Sarnia would do the normal rotating of goalies half way through the second period and with the arrival of Stevie Schaefer in net the momentum seemed to shift to the home team. Evan Trigatti beat the London goalie high glove side from Cole Goosens to finish off the 2nd.

Early in the third Collin Zimmer scored on a rebound from Nathan Oliphant and Ian Bailey would tie the game with 6 minutes to go on a nice tip-in from Tyler Talbot-Ellis and Greg Ross. Sarnia would need to kill a penalty late in the third but hung on for the tie.

Stevie Schaefer was awarded the coach’s player of the game puck while Aiden Clark picked up another accolade as he was awarded the parents player of the game puck. The Jr. Sting drive to Stratford on Saturday November 12 to take on the Warriors.
