It was a four-point weekend for the Sturgeon Midget AA Sting over the weekend.

The Sting started the weekend with an 8-2 win over the visiting Wainwright Polar Kings.

The Sting led the game 2-1 after one, and 4-2 after two. But the final frame saw the Sting adding another four goals while keeping Wainwright off the board.

Graeme Hampton got two back-to-back goals in the third period, and Brady Smith picked up a goal per period in the first and second.

“[It was a] strong team effort all game,” said Coach Greg Northcott.

Sunday’s game against the Leduc Roughnecks was a much closer game for the Sting, one they won 5-4.

“A late powerplay goal from Cache Schiller gave us the win,” Northcott said after Sunday’s game.
The back-to-back wins bring the Stung’s record to 11-9-3 this season. They hold fourth spot in the BESA Hockey Division with nine games remaining in the season.
