The Lambton Junior Sting Minor PeeWee AAA put in a strong showing in the Hamilton Reps Tim Hortons Tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend.   The Sting would qualify for the semi finals after placing first in their division winning 3 games and losing 1. 

In their first game of the weekend, the Sting would play the Syracuse Nationals and come away with a narrow
2 -1 win.  Trailing late in the 3rd period, the Sting would show their ability to come from behind with goals from Theo Crombeen and Lucas Knowles.  Jacob Knowles would make a key glove hand save in the win to get the win in goal.  Nolan Farr and Joey Ferrera would pick up assists.  In the afternoon, the Sting would fall victim to the penalty box in their game against the Hamilton Reps.  Hamilton would score 4 power play goals in winning by a final score of 6 3.  Lucas Knowles would lead the offense in this game with 2 goals, Joe Correia would pick up a goal and assist, Alec Trusler, Josh Vale, Jordan Hurtubise and Dante Fuoco also picked up assists.

On Sunday, the Sting would come out flying against the Cambridge Hawks and win by a score of 3 1.  Nolan Farr, Cameron Rombouts and Dante Fuoco would provide the scoring punch in this game with assists going to Alec Trusler, Joey Ferrera, Josh Vale and Joe Correia.  In the final game of the round robin the Sting would put in another strong performance in defeating Kanata by a final score of 4 2.  The goal scoring in this game was provided by Cameron Rombouts, Jake Vince, Joe Ferrera and Nolan Farr.  Assists were awarded to Jordan Hurtubise, Cameron Adam, Theo Crombeen, Dante Fuoco, Jake Trusler and Joe Correia.  Josh Bayne would be the winning goalie.

On Monday morning, Lambton would square off with the Huron Perth Lakers.  Lambton would generate the better scoring chances early on, but it would be the Lakers who would strike first to take a 1 0 lead.  The Lakers would score again in the 2nd period for a 2 0 lead and the Sting would have to mount another 3rd period comeback to get back in the game.  Theo Crombeen would finally get Lambton on the scoresheet half way through the 3rd period and with only 2 seconds left in the game Nolan Farr would get the equalizer, sending the game to sudden death overtime.  The Sting would generate several quality chances in overtime, but would be unable to find the back of the net.  The game would have to be decided in a shoot out, with Huron Perth finally winning.  A tough loss for the Sting who were so close to making it to the final.

In the afternoon, the Sting would be matched up with a familiar opponent from their league division, the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs.  The Sting would jump out to a 3 0 lead in this game with goals from Lucas Knowles assisted by Gage Langford and Alec Trusler, Cameron Adam assisted by Josh Vale and Jake Vince and Joe Correia assisted by Jake Vince and Josh Vale.  Elgin would narrow the lead to 3 1 but the Sting would strike back quickly on a breakaway goal by Dante Fuoco assisted Joe Correia and Cameron Rombouts.  Unfortunately, the Sting would fall in to penalty trouble and Elgin would score 2 late 2nd period goals to narrow the lead to 4 3 heading into the 3rd period.  Elgin would score 2 3rd period goals to win by a final score of 5 -4.

On Saturday morning, the Sting would play the Quinte Red Devils and despite outplaying their opponent for the majority of the game, would lose by a final score of 3 2.  The Sting would hold a 2 1 lead late in the 3rd period with goals being scored by Cameron Rombouts from Nolan Farr and Dante Fuoco from Jordan Hurtubise.  With approximately 5:00 left in the 3rd period the Sting would be called for a questionable 4 minute penalty and then another questionable 2 minute call.  Quinte would be able to capitalize on the power play with 2 goals and win by a final score of 3 -2.

On Saturday afternoon, Lambton would put in a strong effort in winning their final game of the tournament by a score of 7 2 against the South Central Coyotes.  The Sting were a little flat in the 1st period but would slowly take control of the game in the 2nd period and put the game away with some late 3rd period goals.  Matthew Torti would lead the offensive charge in this game with 3 goals, Theo Crombeen would add 1 goal and 2 assists, Jake Vince would pick up 1 goal and 1 assist, Nolan Farr and Gage Langford would score 1 goal each.  Lucas Knowles would add 3 assists, Tristan Haagsma, Cameron Rombouts and Cameron Adam 2 assists each and Alec Trusler and Joey Ferrera each 1 assist.
