Sting Advance to 2nd Round
Submitted By MPageau on Tuesday, February 14, 2012
The Peewee's were the victors in a hard fought five game series with Windsor Spitfires and now have the dubious task of facing London in the next series, but the boys are looking forward to the clash.

Windsor was a very willing opponent and forced Lambton to earn every goal and victory.
Game 1:  4-4 OT Tie

Windsor reeled off 3 consecutive goals in under three minutes in the 2nd period before Max Steeves scored from Cameron Rannie but Windsor would add another for a 4-1 lead heading to the third.
Garrett Miller made it 4-2 at 8:17 from Nick Discanno and Jared Pageau then a minute later Ben Schoch cut the lead to 4-3 with Matt Hunt and Jared Pageau assisting. Lambton came all the way back when Max Steeves scored his 2nd of the game from Brennan Mckegan and Jared Pageau.
The play went back and forth the final 4 minutes and 5 minute OT. Ethan Williams made a huge save on a breakaway with  little time left in the OT to preserve the tie.
Ethan Hunt and Ethan Williams split goaltending duties.

Game 2: 4-3 Loss

Lambton travelled to Windsor to play in the soon to be demolished "old barn" Windsor Arena for game two.
Just like game one Windsor took command in the 2nd period scoring three goals for a 3-1 lead after two. The Sting once again fought back to tie it 3-3 only to have Windsor score late for a 4-3 loss.
Josh Barraclough, Matt Hunt and Nash Nienhuis scored with Garrett Miller and Max Steeves adding helpers.
Ethan Williams was strong in net making big saves on a few too many breakaways.
Lambton had their backs against the wall trailing 3-1 in the 6 pt series.

Game 3: 2-1 OT Victory

Staying true to form Windsor once again took a lead of 1-0 after a period of play.
Jacob Wiiliams would square matters on a wrist shot from the blue line thru a nice screen. Max Steeves drew the assist.
The game would stay tied the rest of the way and we were headed to another OT game. The game looked like it would end in another tie when Jared Pageau scored with 15 seconds remaining in the OT period to pull the Sting even in the series. Max Steeves and Josh Barraclough assisted on the goal.
Ethan Hunt was strong in net with many key saves.
Lambton had to kill off a 2 minute penalty in the 5 minute OT and the boys did an excelent job.
This was the best reffed game of the season with both teams only taking a minor each and the refs did not decide the outcome.

Game 4: 5-2 Victory

Game #4 was to be played in Windsor but due to inclement weather the Sting could not make the trip so they went to game #5 on the schedule played in Sarnia. This put alot of pressure on the boys knowing they needed a victory with the remainder of the series to be played in Windsor. A loss or a tie and Windsor was in the drivers seat.
Like a broken record Windsor took a lead 5 minutes into period one.
Josh Barraclough would square it at one's at 9:22 of the 2nd frame with Jacob Williams and Bailey Smalls assisting. Garrett Miller gave the Sting the lead four  minutes later jumping into the rush and getting a nice feed from Matt Hunt to bury a shot past the Windsor netminder. Lambton now looked in control of this game leading 2-1 heading into the third.
Windsor kept coming and tied the score thirty seconds into the third until Jared Pageau scored on a wrist shot to give Lambton the lead at 8:54. Max Steeves scored at 4:51 to give the team a two goal cushion while Jared Pageau would score short handed  for a 5-2 win.
Lambton had to kill off a very questionable 5 minute hit from behind penalty and also a phantom 4 minute head shot call. The kids did a great job on the PK as Windsor had a hard time getting out of their end.
Ethan Hunt once again stood tall between the pipes.

Game 5: 2-1 OT Victory

What a surprise Windsor would take a lead on Lambton scoring halfway thru the 2nd period for a 1-0 lead.
Lambton had many scoring chances but the Windsor net minder was equal to the task. With the Sting being thwarted on every attempt it was really becoming nail biting time and looked like Lambton would be travelling
back to Windsor for a deciding game Tuesday night. That was until Nick Discanno jammed home a rebound with 2:08 remaining in the game. The bench erupted in jubilation but there was plenty of hockey still to be played. Max Steeves assisted on the tying goal.
Regulation ended in a 1-1 tie and another game to decided by OT. Lambton only needed a tie to advance and realized Windsor was about to throw everything at them.
Lambton did an excellent job of keeping the puck in the Spits zone making it hard for them to pull their goalie. Windsor eventually did clear and got the extra attacker on the ice but Lambton got the puck back in their opponents zone with Jared Pageau finding the empty net for the OT victory.
Ethan Hunt was stellar in net once again.
It was a very exciting series and congratulations to Windsor for the great effort.
