LAMBTON JR STING TESTED AT SHANAHAN MAJOR PEEWEE AAA HOCKEY TOURNAMENT IN TORONTO
Submitted By lgrant on Monday, November 7, 2016
The 2004 Jr. Sting had 2 very interesting games on Friday vs 2 extremely talented teams in Ontario. The Jr. Sting competed hard in their first game vs Toronto Red Wings with a 2-2 tie, goal scorers were #17 Anthony Tudino and #91 Brett Vince. The Sting went ahead with 5:53 seconds remaining in 3rd period, but could not hang on as the Red Wings scored with 4:15 left in the 3rd to end the contest in a 2-2 tie. Fabulous effort by everyone including Elijah Grant who faced 21 shots and was brilliant once again for the Lambton Sting. #22 Cameron Hachey and #11 Noah Harse faced a tremendous amount of PK time and were a tough tandem in this closely matched contest.




Game 2 was against the #7 ranked Quinte Red Devils. The Sting needed to win this contest to have a chance to compete in the top 8 teams on Sunday. With the Sting down 1-0 after period one, #10 Landen Hookey tied the game with 5:52 to go in period 2 to deadlock the 2 teams.  The Sting went ahead with an unbelievable solo effort by #4 J.J. Fogarty. As J.J. stepped over the blue line he weaved into the right side of the zone to fire a laser beam backhander past the surprised Red Devil goaltender. The Quinte team replaced the goaltender on the goal as desperation was evident.
The Sting went ahead 2-1 and have stunned the top ranked team.  The Sting could not hold on as 2 late goals proved costly and handed the Jr. Sting the first loss of the tourney. #30 Ethan Everaert faced many tough shots, especially early to keep the score close for the Lambton Sting.

Game 3 was a productive game for the Powerplay as the sting answered on 3 of the PPs and scored 5 goals in the second period to win 7-0 vs the Meijer AAA team from Kalamazoo. #10 Landen Hookey was the star of the game offensively with 2 goals 2 assists, other scorers were #17 Anthony Tudino with 2, #6 Brayden Dwyer, and #13 Landon Marcy. The Sting only allowed 6 shots against in the contest.

Game 4 on Saturday, the Sting played the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers. The Sting needed to win to have a slim chance to advance on Sunday. #10 Landen Hookey continued his on ice clinic with 3 goals and 1 assist, but it wasn't enough to win the contest. The Sting tied with 1:22 to go and pulled their goaltender for the extra attacker. This proved costly as the Flyers scored into the empty net and went away with a 5-4 win.

Sting played 4 games in 26 hours and competed hard all 4 games.  The discipline at the kitchen table was a huge success as the energy was consistent all tournament long. The 6 defencemen allowed very little chances all weekend to assist to goaltenders in their quest for perfection.  10 goals against in 4 games is a very good indication that this team is ready to turn the corner and start to win on a consistent basis. The 8 forwards saw lots of ice all weekend and still moved the puck and skated hard to give all 4 teams a fit.

Next tournament is in Vaughan, December 9-11, where the Jr. Sting will face more Top teams from Ontario.

Another Big Test on Tuesday vs The Chatham Cyclones to resume League play.
