Sunday at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena 

Early Game 

Paris RiverWolves 14  Ohsweken Bears 9

The RiverWolves, who have had a resurgence recently, got off to a good start leading 8-2 at the half.  A strong third quarter had Paris up 11-3 heading into the fourth quarter.  Although they took their foot off the gas a bit, allowing Ohsweken to get back in the game, the result was never in doubt.   Paris walked away with a 14-9 victory.   

Ryan Pavic (3g,0a), Alex Kew (3g,0a) and Andy Dawson (2g,3a) led the Paris attack, with Josh Rex (1g,5a) as the playmaker.  Laine Hruska was exceptional in the RiverWolves net.

Late Game 

Whitby Steelhawks 18  Six Nations Snipers 9

While the Six Nations Snipers put up a good fight until midway through the second quarter, the Steelhawks were just too powerful in the long run.  Scoring 11 of the next 12 goals, Whitby blew the game wide open by the start of the fourth quarter.  The Snipers kept fighting, but the hole was just too deep to dig out of.  

Liam Osbourne (3g,4a), Devin Pipher (3g,3a), and Dylan Goddard (3g,2a) led the way for the Steelhawks, with eight others getting on the scoresheet.  Kaleb Martin was superb in net on this day making many difficult saves.

Justin Porga (3g,2a), Cheyton King (2g,1a), Nolan Fehr (2g,0a), Brent Longboat (1g,1a), and Ben Smiley (1g,0a) were the scorers for the Snipers.
