Lambton Jr. Sting Win at Great Lakes Cup Hosted by Huron-Perth
Submitted By Andy Cadieux on Monday, January 25, 2016
The Lambton Jr. Sting Minor Peewee’s finished the Tournament Season with an impressive 3-2 win to bring home their first tournament win at the Great Lakes Cup hosted by Huron-Perth going 4-2-0.

All did not start well for the Jr. Sting as they began the tournament against the Guelph Gryphon’s with a 4-1 loss.  Poor defensive play and a lack of commitment to team play cost the Sting.  Friday night saw the Sting come out strong against tournament host Huron-Perth Laker.  Unable to buy a goal early and falling behind the Sting were forced to open up their game but would eventually fall 6-0.

With a new day came a newer more prepared team, ready to play with conviction and discipline.  A Saturday morning win would mean the Sting could still make the elimination rounds of the Tournament. The Lambton Jr. Sting came out strong against Buffalo’s West Seneca Wings killing penalties and getting on the score sheet shorthanded early.  A 7-4 win paced by balanced scoring was too much for the Wing’s to handle.

Saturday afternoon saw the Sting faceoff against the North Bay Trapper’s and fans would see a back and forth game before the Lambton boys eventually held on to win 2-1. Sunday morning brought with it a chance to play the Gloucester Rangers to see who would move on to the Tournament Championship.  The Sting would open the scoring early and midway through the second period chase Gloucester’s starting goalie on route to an impressive 6-4 win. The Tournament Final saw the Sting face off against Scarborough.  Lambton would finish the 1st period ahead 1-0 before allowing the Young Bruins to tie the game late in the 2nd and take the lead early in the third.  Undaunted the Sting would continue to push the pace of play and tie the game 2-2 with 5 minutes to go in the third.  After killing off multiple penalties the Sting would find the back of the net one final time to take the game and the Championship 3-2.

Coaches from both sides commented on the incredible pace of play throughout the game.  Coaches from the Sting went on to comment “that a complete team effort full of discipline and hard work was the key to victory!”
