Sarnia Sting 3 Huron Perth Lakers 5


The Major Atoms travelled to Sarnia for their match against the Sting. The Lakers were able to utilize hard work by dominating this match inside the Hawks’ blueline. The boys had many scoring opportunities but it would be a breakaway, a backhanded snipe and a hat trick would round out the Laker scoring. Unfortunately, the Sting took advantage of our penalty trouble and would score 3 PP goals. Despite some last-minute desperation attempts by the Sting, the Lakers managed to hold tight to the lead and emerge with the 5-3 win at the final buzzer.

The Lakers goalies continue to be outstanding between the pipes, coming up with crucial saves and keeping the Major Atoms in the game.

These were two impressive weekends for the Lakers that saw a lot of hustle, good puck movement and team play. The boys competed very well with each member of the team contributing to two successful weekends.

Go Lakers Go!!
