SIX NATIONS — Nearing the final week of the ALL Women’s Division Lacrosse, week five began at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena last Saturday and showcased another four match ups.

The first game brought together the Steelhawks and Shockwave, with the Steelhawks boasting more improvement and the Shockwave showing off more control. The game finalized at 9-2 for the Shockwave.

The second game seen the two teams that ended their previous match with a brawl, connecting the Lady Snipers and RiverWolves on the turf again. However, some players were missing from both benches and the game seemed off for both sides.

The usually commanding offence on the RiverWolves was prone to mistakes in passing, while the Snipers seemed solely intent on laying body instead of scoring. This showed on the scoreboard as the Snipers relied more on their experienced players to go to the net. This included Mekwan Tulpin, who scored the first Snipers goal unassisted in the second period, tying the game with the RiverWolves. This pushed the Snipers to rack up penalties to try to maintain the tie however, earning eight minutes in total by the end.

But this tie seemed to kick the RiverWolves in gear, as they racked up 5 consecutive goals in the third, leaving the Snipers far behind. They didn’t return a goal until the fourth period, with a bury by Tyra Skye from Fawn Porter. By then the game was already decided, as the fourth period ended in favour of the Riverwolves 8-2.

With back to back games for the Snipers, they entered the third game versus the Shockwave with even fewer players on their bench. This allowed the Shockwave to reach ahead early on, as while the Snipers had strong showing on transition and defence, they couldn’t return any goals. This closed an extremely physical game, 9-0 for the Shockwave.

The final game brought together the Steelhawks and the RiverWolves, who formerly could not score against any of the other teams in the league. Their improvement brought them a 3-8 final with the RiverWolves, who formerly defeated them 8-2.

The final week will begin on Saturday, March 23, with the RiverWolves still on top, followed by the Shockwave, Snipers and Steelhawks.
