212

The Lambton Jr. Sting rallied from a two-goal deficit but settled for a 2-2 overtime tie with the Waterloo Wolves on Saturday. The result was enough to give the Wolves the Alliance League U18 championship, six points to two.

After falling down 2-0, Carter Fogarty scored a late second period goal and Roen Douglas scored early in the third to tie the contest. The Jr. Sting pulled goaltender Sean Shanahan in the extra frame in search of a goal to extend the series but it was not to be.

Waterloo now advances to the regional finals in hopes of gaining a berth to the Telus Cup.

Among other playdown action on Sunday, the Jr. Sting U11’s edged the Chatham-Kent Cyclones, 4-3 and the U10’s lost 3-2 to the Jr. Knights in London.
