Sarnia Sting lose to Erie Otters

7-2 loss brings Sting season record to 5-2-1 in eight contests


It was a game to forget for the Sarnia Sting on Wednesday night at the Erie Insurance Arena; as the Otters downed the Sting by a score of 7-2 on home ice to improve to 4-3-0-0. With the loss, the Sting are now 5-2-1-0 in eight contests.

Blackhawks’ prospect Alex Debrincat led the way for Erie with 2 goals, 1 assist and 7 shots through 60:00. Pettit, Neumann, Raddysh, Lodnia and Fellows each added singles for the Otters in the win.

Despite firing 32 shots towards Troy Timpano, the Sting were only able to find the back of the net twice in the game. Jordan Ernst and Jeff King were the goal scorers for the Sting while Anthony Salinitri and Brady Hinz each chipped in with an assist.

Justin Fazio, who has been stellar of late, started the game in goal for the Sting but was chased from the crease after allowing 5 goals in the first 28:13. Aidan Hughes came in as a replacement midway through the second period and turned aside 14 of 16 shots faced in his second appearance of the season.
