Toronto Monarchs 17 Peterborough Timbermen 13
Millbrook Arena in Peterborough, Ontario
Another game in which the Timbermen looked even more in sync than the previous week. Although Toronto came away with this victory, Peterborough didn't make it easy. The Timbermen jumped out to a two goal lead in the first quarter, but seven of the next eight goals for the Monarchs changed the dynamic of the game. Peterborough kept fighting all day matching Toronto goal for goal the rest of the way, but the Monarchs came away with a 17-13 win in this very entertaining game.
Jordan Dance (8g,2a) and Parker Pipher (3g,7a) led the way for the Monarchs, with Tanner Buck (1g,6a) and Patrick Thomson (0g,5a) being the setup men.
Riley Curtis (6g,3a), Blaze White (2g,2a), and Parker Sands (2g,1a) led the way for the Timbermen.
The Three Stars
1. Jordan Dance (Toronto)
2. Riley Curtis (Peterborough)
3. Parker Pipher (Toronto)
Whitby Steelhawks 15 Oshawa Outlaws 10
Children's Arena in Oshawa, Ontario
This was the game of the week, hands down! Two powerhouses of the league facing off in a possible championship preview.
The Steelhawks tried to set the pace early, but the Outlaws were equal to the task all evening long. It looked like Whitby was going to pull away in the third quarter, going on a three goal run, but by early in the fourth, Oshawa was within one goal again. Special teams was Oshawa's undoing in this game. Two late shorthanded goals from the Steelhawks had the Outlaws reeling, add a power play goal, and that was the dagger. Whitby added one last even strength goal for the 15-10 character victory.
Trent Boyd (3g,2a), Devin Pipher (3g,1a), and Jeff Fernandes (2g,2a) led the way for Whitby, with Tyler Goodchild (0g,5a) being the playmaker. This balanced Steelhawks attack saw goals from nine different scorers. Grant Crawley was spectacular, making 31 saves in the win.
John St. John (2g,4a), Geoff Mcnulty (2g,2a), and Cole Hanrahan (2g,1a) led the way for the Outlaws, with Alec Simons (1g,5a) being the setup man. Ryan Schuetzkowski made 38 saves in the loss.
The Three Stars:
1. Grant Crawley (Whitby)
2. Trent Boyd (Whitby)
3. John St. John (Oshawa)
Brampton Express 14 Paris RiverWolves 5
Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Hagersville, Ontario
An undermanned Paris RiverWolves squad put up a valiant effort but was no match for the Brampton Express on this afternoon. The first quarter was evenly played at 1-1. The Express took over in the middle quarters, outscoring the RiverWolves 10-2, breaking the game wide open. The final quarter was more tame but still controlled by Brampton en route to a 14-5 victory.
Pent Eistrat (2g,3a) and Zac Sunderland (4g,1a) led the Brampton attack, with seven others chipping in goals as well. Cam Dunkerly was spectacular in goal making 41 saves.
Noah Simonelli (2g,1a), Kyle Dawson (2g,0a), and Luke Van Schepen (1g,0a) accounted for all of the RiverWolves scoring. Chase Cosgrove made 47 saves in the losing effort.
The Three Stars:
1. Cam Dunkerly (Brampton)
2. Gage Board (Brampton)
3. Pent Eistrat (Brampton)
