Jr. Sting Win Game Three
Submitted By MPageau on Sunday, February 19, 2012
Coming off a very rare victory over London Friday evening at home the team were back on the road Saturday for game #3 in their quarter final matchup. The team knew it would be a very difficult task to win back to back games in the playoffs against a very strong Knight club.

For the eighth straight playoff game the team gave up the first goal as London scored at the 2:47 mark of period one. For the next five minutes it was all Sting as Jacob Williams drilled home a low slapshot to even the score, Josh Barraclough and Jared Pageau assisted. 25 seconds later Max Steeves scored to put the team ahead while assisting on the play was Cameron Rannie. The first period ended with Lambton leading 2-1.
Steeves would score again on a breakaway 25 seconds into period two making a nice move on the goalie.  Daniel Wellington and Ben Schoch assisted on the play. A minute after that Nick Discanno put the team up by three on a nice goal while Jared Pageau assisted. There was still plenty of time remaining in the game for a talent laden team like London to come back.
Ethan Hunt stood tall in net turning aside shot after shot including a shot that bent his mask, repairs to come when game ended.
The team gave another all out effort as  guys were blocking shots, bodies flying all over the ice and a very good PK as they killed a 5 on 3 for over a minute, which is very rare against the Knights.
A weird stat fom this game was London not taking a single penalty while Lambton was whistled for five minors.
 Weird because a game with this much physicallity finds a team penalty free.
The team played another disciplined game in all phases of the contest.
Lambton now faces their hardest task to date, trying to eliminate the Champs. Winning two games is great but the team realizes it takes six points to win the series and there is alot of hard work ahead as London will not go quietly.
Keep believing in yourselves and anything is possible!
