Sting streak ends at seven with loss to Greyhounds
andrew brethauer October 20th, 2011

Sarnia, ON The Sarnia Sting had their seven game win streak snapped Thursday night, as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defeated the Sting 5-2, marking the first regulation home loss of the season for the Sting, and first regulation loss since October 10th.

It was all Greyhounds in the first, as they fired 17 shots on Brandon Maxwell in the period, scoring twice. Brandon Alderson picked up his third goal of the season just 30 seconds into the game, while David Quesnele scored his second of the year with a minute and a half remaining in the period.

But a much strong second period would see the Sting turn it around and tie the game. Nail Yakupov scored his eight of the year on the powerplay, and Craig Hottot got his fifth of the season just over a minute later to even it back at 2-2.

But with time about to expire in the period, Nick Cousins would get sixth of the season with six seconds remaining in the period, giving the Greyhounds their lead back.

Sarnia would be outshot 10-8 in the third period and would not be able to claw any closer. Brett Findley would put the Greyhounds up by two with his fifth of the season, while Michael Schumacher would make it a three goal game with his seventh of the season.

Maxwell stopped 29 shots for only his second loss of the season.

Reid Boucher was on the ice for four on the Greyhounds goals, going out with a plus/minus of -4. Charlie Sarault, Nail Yakupov and Alex Basso each had -3 on the night.

Sarnia is right back into action on Friday, visiting Kitchener before returning home on Saturday for a meeting with Belleville.
