Week 12 in the ALL yesterday saw another 3 terrific games with each of them providing playoff atmosphere lacrosse. 
At the TRAC in Oakville, the Peterborough Timbermen couldn't take advantage of a long 5 on 3 powerplay early and the 4th quarter with Toronto's Jordan Dance scoring a highlight reel short handed goal, his second such marker on the day to cap a 4 goal performance.

In Six Nations, the Snipers were beaten 14-10 by the Oshawa Outlaws who moved into first place overall due to their season series victory. Zach Higgins lead the way for the Outlaws providing many key saves when required, Dylan Goddard and Mike Triolo had hat tricks in the victory. 

The nightcap game in Paris saw the St. Catharines ShockWave lead from start to finish but not without the RiverWolves pushing them to the limited, tying the game at 14 in the 4th quarter only to lose 17-16 in a thrilling playoff type game that featured a hard hitting battle and a slew of goals.
