The Sarnia Sting dropped Game 1 of the best of seven series by a score of 6-3 on Friday night at the SSEC. The Hounds jumped out to a 1-0 series lead in front of 4,199 fans at the Sarnia Sports & Entertainment Centre.

Brandon Halverson was stellar in goal for the Greyhounds – turning aside 33 of 36 shots faced. Graham was in goal for the Sting, stopping 25 of 31.

Travis Konecny opened the scoring for the home team, just 4:29 into the first stanza. The power play goal was assisted by Pavel Zacha and Nikita Korostelev.

Kevin Spinozzi made it 2-0 on the second half of the double-minor, finishing off a pretty Jordan Kyrou pass. Josh Jacobs drew the second helper.

Hayden Verbeek would get the lone Greyhounds goal of the period at 11:19. The goal was unassisted.

The Greyhounds would take control in the second stanza, scoring four times in the period. Guertler would score twice while MacIntyre and Speers would each add singles. Mistele would score the lone Sting goal with the assists going to Zacha & Konecny.

Boris Katchouk would round out the scoring for Sault Ste. Marie in the third period.

Game two is set for Sunday at 4:05 as the Sting look to tie up the series. Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office between 10 and 2 tomorrow or online here.
