A short bench didn’t prevent the Sturgeon Midget AA Sting from taking down the visiting Beaumont Braves 6-2 on Saturday.
The Sting started the game with a healthy 3-1 first-period lead, and both sides double their tallies in the second frame to 6-2 in the Sting’s favour.
The Sting outshot the Braves 48-22.
Jacob Reagan came away with the player of the game fireman’s hat for his three-goal performance. Luke Cust offered the Sting three assists during the game.
Saturday’s win brings the Sting to 13-11-3 this season.
Their next game is Saturday, Feb. 8, at 8:30 p.m. against the Fort McMurray Barons.
