A Schoching Finish for the AAA Peewees

SPECIAL TO SARNIASPORTS.COM  October 15, 2011

With the goalie pulled and a minute remaining in the game the Jr. Sting were looking for the equalizer against the Cyclones from Chatham Kent Thursday evening at the RBC

Lambton, stuck in a scoring drought spanning 5 periods of hockey, had played a very strong game for 39 minutes but had come up empty on the scoresheet.

They were looking for somebody to step up and bury a goal as Ben Schoch went on for the goalie he cruised into the offensive zone just as the puck squirted loose to the oncoming sniper. Schoch blasted a hard slapshot thru traffic that eluded the goalie to give Lambton a 1-1 tie. Conner Royer and Nash Nienhuis assisted, working hard down low to obtain the puck.

The Jr. Sting gave a solid effort and controlled play when they stayed out of the box. 

Ethan Hunt was solid in net only allowing Chatham a single goal.

Lambton needs to find ways to generate some offense as it is very hard to win averaging less than 2 goals per game.
Defensively the Jr. Sting have been very good also allowing just less than 2 goals per game.
