Sting lose at home to the 67’s

The Sarnia Sting were humbled 10-2 by the OHL’s top team, the Ottawa 67’s, at the Progressive Auto Sales arena Friday.

Both Sting goals came in the first period.

Trailing 2-0 Jamieson Rees scored his eighth of the season on the power play assisted by Hugo Leufvenius and Mitch Eliot.

Then Leufvenius scored his team-leading twenty-fifth of the season, also on the power play.

Ottawa scored four goals each in the second and third periods.

Tye Felhaber scored twice for the 67’s, bringing his season total to forty-six goals. He also added two assists.

Sam Bitten, Marco Rossi, Lucas Chiodo, Graeme Clarke, Noel Hoefenmayer, Austin Keating, Quinn Yule and Mitchell Hoelscher also tallied for the 67’s.

Ottawa scored once on the power play and twice while short-handed.

Sarnia Associate coach Brad Staubitz said he felt the Sting played well in the first two periods but only had two shots on net in the final frame. “That’s where you’ve got to push yourselves, play right to the end. It’s a 60 minute game and we came out flat in the third. We had two shots and that wasn’t good enough.”

Cameron Lamour started in net for Sarnia and Staubitz said he deserved the start. “He had a strong game, his last game, it gets confidence in you. He hasn’t got a win for us yet but he’s competing every game. We thought his last game was his strongest and he deserved the start.”

Lamour was pulled midway through the second period after allowing five goals on ten shots.

He was replaced by Ethan Langevin who gave up five goals on sixteen shots.

Cedric Andree stopped 15 of 17 shots for the 67’s.
