Minor Bantam Sting score three in third for victory over Cambridge
Andrew Brethauer October 1st, 2011

Sarnia, ON - Jarred Marks had two goals and an assist for the Lambton Jr. Sting, as the Minor Bantam AAA team won 4-1 over the Cambridge Jr. Hawks Saturday afternoon at the RBC Centre.

We were slow out of the gates, we didn't have a very good first period," said coach Jeff Perry. "But we stayed with it, I thought we had a good second period, and after an early goal in the third period they bounced back extremely well."

Lambton had four call ups in the line up, which Perry says played extremely well despite not spending a lot of time with the minor Bantam's.

Marks got his first goal in the second period to give the Sting a 1-0 lead. The Hawks would respond early in the third period on the powerplay, with Noah Fisher picking up the goal.

Marks would add his second goal on the powerplay, and Alec Dekoning would add the empty net goal to make it a 4-1 victory.

Lambton controlled most of the third period leading to their victory. The Sting have not been overly strong in the third period, which has cost them some games in the past.

"We have lost a couple of games in the last minute," said Perry. "Jarred Pageau blocked a shot which lead to an offensive goal. It's good for our kids to see when they clean up our end of the rink, they will generate offence at the other."

Perry notes the minor bantams are notorious for their defensive play, but there is still a lot of work to be done with the team in the early weeks of the season.

"It's still a work in progress," said Perry. "systematically there is still a lot of work to be done, but hopefully this was a step in the right direction."
