The Lambton Sting Major Atoms came away with a win and tie from their home and home series with the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs over the weekend.  The two teams played to a 6-6 tie at the RBC Centre on Saturday before the Sting rebounded the next day with an impressive 2-0 shutout victory on the road.
Saturday's game featured plenty of offense from both teams especially in a wild third period that saw 7 goals scored as the Sting rallied to earn the tie after falling behind 6-4 with six minutes remaining in the game.   Dylan Riddell scored twice for Lambton with singles going to Carson Perry, Jaycob White, Nolan DeGurse and Josh McLean.  DeGurse and McLean each had 3 helpers with Hunter Monkhouse and Spencer Vandenboom getting one assist each.  Luc Thorne-Smith earned the tie in net for the Sting.
On Sunday the Sting carried the play to Elgin-Middlesex right from the opening whistle and were rewarded with the game's first goal midway through the first period when Nolan DeGurse jammed in a loose puck following a goalmouth scramble.  Dylan Riddell and Josh McLean drew assists on the play.   The Sting would add an insurance marker early in the third on a nifty deflection by Brock Barber off of a Jaxon Shelton point shot.  Ryleigh Vanderwal also picked up an assist on the play.  Liam McCarthy notched his third shutout of the season and while he was not tested often he did come up with some big saves in the third period to prevent the Chiefs from gaining any momentum.
