Six Nations Snipers 14  vs. Toronto Monarchs 18

At the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario

The Six Nations Snipers came out with guns ablazing jumping out to a 6-2 lead after one, and 11-5 at the half.  Nolan Fehr (4g,0a), and Justin Porga (2g,4a) led the way for the Snipers in their successful first half.  A calm third quarter had the Snipers sailing into the fourth with a 12-8 lead.

The fourth quarter was an entirely different story.  Jordan Dance (5g,2a) put the Monarchs on his back and scored five times in a span of 5:13 (the first goal was with 0:07 seconds left in the third quarter) en route to a Monarchs ten goal fourth quarter.  Patrick Corbett (5g,2a) added a fourth quarter hat-trick to seal the deal for an 18-14 Toronto win.

Jordan Dance (5g,2a), Patrick Corbett (5g,2a), and Tanner Buck (2g,4a) led the offense for Toronto, with Parker Pipher (1g,6a) and Dan Williams (0g,6a) being the playmakers. 

Nolan Fehr (4g,0a), Justin Porga (2g,4a), and Cheyton King (3g,1a) led the way for the Snipers, with Haudais Maracle (1g,5a) and Todd Thomas Jr. (1g,4a) being the playmakers. 

The Three Stars:

1. Jordan Dance (Toronto)
2. Patrick Corbett (Toronto)
3. Nolan Fehr (Six Nations)


Whitby Steelhawks 14  vs.  Paris RiverWolves 15

At the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA) in Hagersville, Ontario

In what had to be the biggest upset of the season so far, the 3-7 Paris RiverWolves defeated the 7-3 Whitby Steelhawks on Sunday afternoon at the ILA.  On the strength of a Marley Angus six goals perfomance, as well as the game winner from Noah Simonelli with six minutes left, the RiverWolves played their most complete game of the year.  Although Whitby jumped out to a 3-1 lead early, Paris kept plugging and took a 5-4 lead after one, and 10-8 lead at the half.  Whitby mounted a comeback in the third quarter tying the game 12-12.  The Steelhawks took the lead in the fourth, but a three goal run was enough for Paris to hold on for the 15-14 victory.

Marley Angus (6g,2a), Kyle Dawson (2g,1a), and Noah Simonelli (2g,1a) led the offense for Paris, with Daire Newbrough (1g,3a) being the playmaker. 

Trent Boyd (4g,1a) and Liam Osbourne (2g,2a) led the Steelhawks offense, Devin Pipher (0g,4a), Jeff Fernandes (1g,3a), and Tyler Goodchild (1g,3a) were the playmakers.

The Three Stars:

1. Marley Angus (Paris)
2. Trent Boyd (Whitby)
3. Daire Newbrough (Paris)
