Sting calm Storm in Guelph
The Sarnia Sting upset the Storm 6-2 in Guelph.
The Sting led 1-0 after the opening period on Nick Grima’s third goal of the season.
Guelph’s Nate Schnarr tied the game at 4:36 of the second period then Sarnia would score four unanswered goals.
Jamieson Rees scored his tenth of the season at the 8:27 mark followed 25 seconds later by Justin McCombs’ third.
With his team-leading 31st of the campaign Hugo Leufvenius made it 4-1 on the power play before Braden Guy notched his seventeenth 29 seconds later.
The Storm would score their second goal 13 minutes into the second.
Sean Josling, with his fourteenth, rounded out the scoring for Sarnia in the final frame.
Sarnia associate coach Brad Staubitz liked what he saw on the ice.
“I thought we played a really good game. We generated a lot of offence, had good chances, even in the first period with odd man rushes, and Lamour played great in net for us.”
Cameron Lamour made 37 saves for Sarnia while Guelph’s Anthony Popovich and Nico Daws combined for 19 saves.
In a rarity the Sting claimed all “three star” selections with Lamour first star followed by Rees and Franco Sproviero who collected two assists.
