Sting come from behind to defeat Spirit
andrew brethauer October 30th, 2011

Saginaw, MI   With three unanswered goals, the Sarnia Sting came back from a 2-0 deficit to win their second on the road this week, with a 3-2 victory over the Saginaw Spirit.

After a scoreless first period, Saginaw got a quick one just 50 seconds into the second period, as Michael Fine made it a 1-0 game. Four minutes later Justin Kea would make it 2-0 Saginaw.

But Sarnia would respond and it would be on the powerplay, as Nail Yakupov would put in his 12th of the season to cut the lead in half. Before the period could end, Ludvig Rensfeldt would add his sixth of the season to tie things at 2-2 at the end of the second.

In the third, Charlie Sarault would also add his sixth of the season, as both Rensfeldt and Yakupov would pick up their second points on the night with assists in what would ultimately be the game winner.

Sarnia has been 3-0-1 in their last four since their seven game winning streak was ended on October 20th. Sarnia still sits on top of the West Division with an 11-2-0-2 record on the season.

Sarnia will head to London for an afternoon meeting on Sunday.
