MINOR ATOM STARS START THE WEEKEND WITH SOME FUN AT THE JLC AND THEN GET BACK TO BUSINESS WINNING 2 GAMES AGAINST SARNIA
Submitted By dale nurse on Sunday, January 22, 2012

The MINOR ATOM STARS would like to thank the ST THOMAS MAJOR ATOM STARS for the invite and the awesome fun filled night at the JLC during an exhibition game and then staying for the Rick Nash night and the Knight’s beating Owen Sound.  The boys had a great time playing with their friends from the major team. 



The kids then got back to the regular season rink beating the Sarnia Sting in a two day showdown.  The boys came out a little slow in both games, but got back in the flow of passing and shooting to control the games in the end.

Game 1 – MINOR ATOM STARS win 3-2 over Sarnia Sting

Starting in net for the STARS, Maclane Stringle had to make some huge saves during the game.  Maclane had to face not only once but three times a 3-on-1 rush by the opposition to the net.  Maclane played each rush in by reacting to every motion of the puck and slid over to make the saves.  With some play action at the net, Jack Pigram grabbed the puck in the corner and passed around the boards to Hunter Nurse who then passed out from the end to Keavan Milmine.  Keavan then found some open room and blasted the puck thru the five hole, getting the STARS on the board first.  Jeff Carr had a great game rushing to the net and getting the shot away, but their goalie was just able to reach over to stop the puck.  Josh Niles and James Martin were having a field day out their on defense.  Both Josh and James kept breaking thru and rushing up the boards to create play after play and chance after chance at the net for the STARS.  

Extending the STARS lead in the second, Ethan Miron passed across the ice to an open wing and hit the tape of Brennen Smith.  Brennen went to shoot and then passed over to Kyle Wiebe, where he wristed the puck to the back of the net.  The Sting came back in the third getting two goals in the period, but determination and shoveling at the net paid off for Ethan Miron.  Ethan kept battling for the loose puck and somehow beat the goalie for possession and tapped the puck in giving the STARS the win.

 

Game 2 – MINOR ATOM STARS beat Sarnia Sting 5-1

It was an evenly matched first period by both teams.  Mike Roth and Colton Wiacek had a lot of work to do out there and tracked down every player that had the puck and stole the puck away reversing the play action.  Jayce Smith had a lot of skating to do on his shifts and back checked the opposition to give the STARS the turnovers that they needed to move the play back to the Sarnia end.  Ryan Bonter once again had a solid performance and kept the Sting down to only one goal.  Ryan trapped every fluttering puck in his chest and gloves and got the butterfly position to stop a rush to the net. 

 

The MINOR ATOM STARS took the early lead in the first, as Jeffery Carr swooped in down the wing and passed over to Keavan Milmine who snuck the puck thru the five hole again.  There was a lot of puck movement by the STARS in this game.  Jack Pigram passed over to Kyle Wiebe who then passed over to Brennen Smith who beat the goalie going to the side of the net where the STARS took a 2-0 lead. 

 

The Sting came out quickly in the start of the third a got back in the game 2-1, but it was all STARS control for the rest of the third period with three more unanswered goals.  Hunter Nurse and Mike Roth teamed up in passing and slid the puck over to Keavan who got his second goal on the day by slamming the puck thru the goalie.  Then it was Ethan Georgijev creating some open space passing to Keavan passing back to Hunter.  Hunter then put the puck at the net and with a funny bounce off the goal stick the puck tumbled to the back of the net.  Jayce Smith and Ethan Miron were passing along and then sent the puck back to Colton Wiacek.  Colton then blistered a long shot from the blue line at the net and it bounced thru the five hole once again getting the final goal of the game.

GREAT JOB OF PASSING BOYS!!!

LET’S KEEP IT UP DURING PLAYDOWNS!!!!!

 

GO STARS!!!!!
