SIX NATIONS – The KW Braves put up little resistance Sunday night as the Six Nations Arrows Express walked to a 14-1 win and still remain in first place.
It was right down to business as Dallas John, Austin Staats, Jake McNabb and Bo Henhawk gave the Arrows a 4-0 first period led, which Staats, with his second and third, Jordan Durston, Josh Johnson with two, and Tehoka Nanticoke added to in the second to take a 10-0 lead.
That quickly became 11-0 at 1:14 of the third with Durston scoring from Brendan Bomberry and Staats.
There were no penalties called on either team until the Braves’ Blain Adams was tagged with an illegal cross-check. Austin Staats made them pay right away from Durston and Bomberry and suddenly it was 12-0. Dallas John and Bomberry made it 14-0 minutes later
Doug Jamieson came within 33 seconds of a rare lacrosse shut out when KW’s Damon Currie finally got one past him at 19:27 for a 14-1 final.
Friday, June 12th, the Arrows overcame a 7-5 second period deficit to defeat the Orangeville Northmen 10-7 with a five-goal string in the third period.
Orangeville got the hometown crowd into the game at the Alder Arena with the first three goals before Tehoke Nanticoke and Josh Johnson closed the gap to 3-2 going into the second period.
The Northmen scored the first two of the second before Dallas John and Brendan Bomberry matched them. The Northmen pulled out ahead again, 7-4 before Johnson added the Arrows fifth goal.
The wind was quickly knocked out of the sails of the Northmen in the third. As goalie Doug Jamieson and his defense held down the Northmen, the Arrows offense pounded out the last five goal of the game to shock Orangeville and their fans with a 10-7 Six Nations win.
Brendan Bomberry scored two and assisted on four more while Josh Johnson racked up three goals and two assists, Jordan Durston scored two and assisted on two.
Upcoming games will see the Arrows travel to Whitby to face the Warriors Tuesday night and Barrie Friday night before returning home to the ILA for a rematch with the Warriors, Sunday, June 21st, at 7 pm.
