Sting win back to back at home
Pat Brethauer October 9, 2011

The Sarnia Sting were at home this holiday weekend and celebrated wins against Oshawa (5-2) and Kitchener (4-3) on Friday and Saturday nights.

In the 5 - 2 against Oshawa Nail Yakupov opened the scoring in the first period.  Taylor Carnevale scored his first of the season on a penalty shot to give Sarnia the 2 - 0  lead.  Late in the second Oshawa Lucas Lessio added one to the scoreboard and the two teams headed into the third with Sarnia leading 2 - 1. 

On the powerplay and after many changes Reid Boucher finally had one slip by the Oshawa goaltender take a 3 - 1 lead.   Nathan Chiarlitti scored his first goal of the season to make it 4 - 1.  With Oshawa on the powerplay Christian Thomas scored with less than 5:00 minutes on the clock.  Action continued and in the final minute Taylor Carnevale scored his second of the night and for the season into an empty net.

The Sting outshot the Generals 40 - 29 and went 1 for 3 on the powerplay, Generals went 1 for 2.

On Saturday against the Kitchener Rangers both sides went scoreless and tied 2 - 2 after two.  Sarnia scored first then Kitchener would tie things up both times in the second.  Reid Boucher scored both of the Sting goals each time on a powerplay.   Michael Catenacci and Brent Pedersen score for the Rangers.






In the third period Boucher scored his third goal giving him the hat trick and the Sting taking the lead.  On a mini breakaway Nail Yakupov scored his 5th of the season and what turn out to be the game winner.  With less than a minute to go Kitchener scored but the Sting held on to take the second win with a 4 - 3 final.


Ex Kitchener Ranger Goaltender Brandon Maxwell earned his 4th win of the season with the Sting and the third star of the night.  Reid Boucher was #1, Nail Yakupov #2.

The Sting outshot the Rangers 40/27.  The Sting went 2 for 9 on the powerplay, Kitchener went 0 for 5.
