The Minor Atoms MD were hungry for a win
sarniasports November 15, 2011

The Sarnia Jr. Sting Minor Atom MD's travelled to Stratford on Sat. November 12th to take on the Warriors. The Sting were hungry for a win having tied their last game.
Sarnia started slowly allowing a goal in the opening 30 seconds of the game. Stratford converted on a goal mouth scramble, firing a loose puck in behind the Sarnia goalie. At that point it seemed as if it was an awakening for the Jr. Sting as Sarnia never looked back. They would tie the game 27 seconds later when Lleyton Williams received the pass from Adam Ikert and went on a great end to end rush finishing with the perfect wrist shot into the back of the Stratford goal. Seven minutes later Sting winger Chandler Haagsma would add a goal to put the Sting in front by one. The first period would close out with the Sting leading by a score of 2 - 1.
The second period produced many quality opportunities for the Sting to increase their lead however they could not solve the Warrior goaltending. Numerous Sarnia breakaways and 2 on 1's resulted in no goals as the Sting went into the third period up by only one .
Sarnia's defense stood tall as they played short with only two pairings for the entire game. Great effort was evident by: Connor Antosiak, Danny Gratton, Simon Doan and Alex Newall.
The Jr. Sting kept pressing and finally were rewarded as Adam Ikert scored an empty net goal in the dying seconds of the game. Cayden Wise would get the assist. Sting goalie Ian Stouth made some huge saves to keep Sarnia in the game. The kids showed great emotion and strong effort in the win. Final score: Sarnia Jr. Sting 3 - Stratford Warriors 1.

Next game for the Jr. Sting is against London Bandits Orange on Wednesday night!
