Major Atoms AAA Split a Pair of Games on the Weekend
special to sarniasports.com oCTober 11, 2011
The Lambton Sting went 1-1 over the weekend losing to Huron Perth 4-3 Saturday before rebounding with a 4-0 win over the Kitchener Rangers on Sunday.
 
On Saturday at the RBC Centre the Sting came out flat against the Lakers falling behind 2-0 before Cameron Ware would get Lambton on the scoreboard by converting a nice pass from Spencer Vandenboom.   The Lakers would go up 3-1 but Lambton rallied to tie the contest midway through the third period.   Hunter Monkhouse scored a shorthanded marker with help from Nolan DeGurse and then Ware would get the equalizer from Monkhouse and Carson Perry. The rally would be for naught as a defensive breakdown with 3 minutes remaining allowed Huron Perth to score the game winning goal.
 
There were no such lapses on Sunday against Kitchener as the team came out fired up and took the play to the Rangers right from the opening face-off.   Lambton would take the lead just over a minute into the game on a goal from Carson Perry assisted by Hunter Monkhouse.   Nolan DeGurse would make it 2-0 in the second period when he scored an unassisted powerplay goal on a wraparound.  
 
The Sting increased their lead to 3-0 when Jaycob White made a terrific play to pinch-in at the blueline, and he would get the puck to Spencer Vandenboom who made no mistake in deking the Rangers goaltender.   Dylan Riddell added an empty-netter with Ryan Barwitzki drawing the assist.  Luc Thorne-Smith earned the shutout between the pipes with a 16 save effort for his first regular season AAA victory.
