Week Six:

Game One:

Toronto Monarchs 13  @  Brampton Express 11

In what could only be called the "Game of the Week" the Toronto Monarchs (4-2) visited the Brampton Express (4-2) at the Memorial Arena in Brampton, Ontario. 

The Express jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the first quarter, only to be answered by Toronto with a big six goal second. The Monarchs took the lead 7-5 at the half. The teams were knotted 9-9 after three quarters, setting the stage for a heart-stopping last quarter.

Both teams traded two goals each, setting up a nail-biter of a finish. Jordan Dance gave the Monarchs the lead on the power play off a Parker Pipher set up with just 4:00 remaining, then scored an insurance goal at 12:02 to seal the game for Toronto. 

Parker Pipher (3g,3a), Dan Williams (3g,2a), and Jordan Dance (4g,0a) led the offense for Toronto.   

Zac Sunderland (5g,2a), and Pent Eistrat (2g,0a) led the attack for Brampton, with Ryan Campbell (1g,6a), and Gage Board (1g, 3a) being the playmakers. 

The Three Stars:

1. Bailey Brown 

2. Zac Sunderland 

3. Jordan Dance 


Peterborough Timbermen 2  @  Oshawa Outlaws 12

In the early game at the Children's Arena in Oshawa, Ontario, John St. John (3g,3a), Luke Laskiewicz (2g,3a), and Nick Andreoli (2g,0a) led the attack for the Oshawa Outlaws (5-1) in this lopsided victory over Peterborough (0-6). Deacan Knott saved 34 of 36 shots in the contest propelling the Outlaws to a 6-1 season record.

A good tilt near the start of the second quarter had Kaleb Bingley of the Timbermen fighting Riley Morgan of the Outlaws, with the decision going to Bingley. Overall, a very spirited and entertaining game despite the score.

The Three Stars:

1. Deacan Knott (Oshawa)

2. John St. John (Oshawa)

3. Zach Tomkinson (Oshawa)

Game Three:

Six Nations Snipers 5  @  Whitby Steelhawks 16

The late game at the Children's Arena had Six Nations (2-3) facing Whitby (4-2). The Whitby Steelhawks had seven different scorers score nine times in the first half, en route to a 9-1 lead over Six Nations at halftime. The second half saw the Steelhawks increase their lead to 13-1 before the Snipers would get on the board again. Six Nations gained a bit of momentum near the end of the game scoring three of the final four goals, but the hole was too deep to climb out of at that point.

Trent Boyd (3g,3a), Liam Osbourne (4g,1a) and Dylan Goddard (2g,2a) led the way for Whitby. Kaleb Martin made 31 saves on 36 shots in the victory. 

Haudais Maracle (1g,1a), Nolan Fehr (1g,1a), Cheyton King (1g,1a), Brent Longboat (1g,0a), and Vern Hill (1g,0a) scored for the Snipers.

The Three Stars:

1. Liam Osbourne (Whitby)

2. Trent Boyd (Whitby)

3. Kaleb Martin (Whitby)

In a very entertaining back and forth game, the Paris RiverWolves (3-3) outlasted the Oshwekan Bears (2-4) 16-13 in Sunday afternoon action at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA).

A well balanced Paris attack had seven different scorers light the lamp in the victory.  Eric Lemire (2g,5a), Marley Angus (2g,4a), Alex Kew(3g,1a), and Eddie Renaud (3g,0a) led the RiverWolves attack.
