special to sarniasports  October 24,  2011

The Lambton Sting AAA Midget team is 3 weeks into the season and finding out there is some very strong teams in the league. The Midget team is currently on a four game losing streak that started with a tough 3-1 loss to Cambridge October 16. Lone goal scorer against Cambridge was Nic Sproviero with assists to Mac Collasimone and Chad Beauchamp. The following Wednesday the Sting travelled to London with a short bench and lost 8-1 with Sproviero scoring an unassisted goal. On Saturday the Sting hosted Windsor and they proved why they have been defeated once this year. Windsor took the Major Sting 6-4 with goals to Ryan Frizzell (2), Dillon Liberty and Frankie White. Assists went to Liberty (2), Frizzell, DJ Sapone (2), and Jay Ritchie. Sunday the Midgets faced the top team in the league, the Waterloo Wolves. The Wolves won by a score of 8-1 with Matthew Brandon scoring the lone goal for the Sting.

The team will regroup and look forward to a stronger showing next week. Despite the losses, there are many bright spots in the season and one is their scoring defencemen. In both regular season games and in the Markham tournament the Defense have been finding the back of the net. Goals and assists by the D in league play are as follows...Nick Zottl 2/1, Matthew Brandon 1/2,  Chad Beauchamp 0/3, DJ Sapone 0/2, PJ Vandervaart 1/0 and David Addley 0/1.

The Midget team is also pleased to welcome new players from outside of Lambton. Jay Ritchie and Dillon Liberty join us from Chatham, Dylan Symons from Strathroy and Robert Mapes from London. 

 
The Midgets are back on the road next weekend when they travel to face off against the Waterloo Wolves for the second time.
