Midget Minors shut down Southpoint


Special to the RTT

The fourth meeting between the Midget Minor Stars and the Southpoint Capitals came Saturday night at the UCCU Complex and once again Amherstburg picked up valuable points with a convincing 4-1 win.

The Stars got on the board first when Jordan Bastien set up Mitch Holden who scored the opening goal at 5:12 of the first period.  Immediately after, with the Capitals on the power play, Spencer Benvenuto broke through shorthanded to score unassisted putting the Stars up by a deuce.

In the closing seconds of the period Mike Lenson stepped in to save a seemingly sure wrap around goal by Southpoint.

The second period’s only goal came when Avery Brush and Holden controlled a two on one which ended with Holden drawing the goalie out of his net and then flipping it into the top corner for his second goal in as many periods.

The Stars kept the pressure on after the intermission bringing it up to 4-0 as Mike Lenson’s pass assisted on Kyle Fockens power play goal early in the third.

Josh Paquette’s outstanding goal tending almost got the shutout until late in the game when the Capital’s snuck one by him making the final score 4-1.

The Stars went undefeated versus Southpoint this season.

Come see the Stars Midget Minor’s this Saturday night as they host the Essex Ravens, game time 8:10 p.m.
