OHSWEKEN – Saturday at the Gaylord Powless Arena (GPA) is always a great way of spending a free afternoon, even if you don’t have kids or grandkids playing.
Last Saturday afternoon was no different as the Six Nations PeeWee LL Intertown Blackhawks took on the Port Dover Pirates in the 2 p.m. game.
Certainly a character building win for Dennis MacDonald’s Six Nations Blackhawks as they overcame a 4-1 deficit to steel a 5-5 tie from the Port Dover Pirates.
Dayton Jamieson scored first, assisted by Sonny Jacobs, to give the Blackhawks an early 1-0 lead. But the wheels fell off from that point in the period on as Jacob Dengo scored twice and Taylor Ellis and Dylan Cavan built a 4-1 lead for Dover by the end of the period. Cavan’s goal was scored with four seconds remaining.
Jamieson scored his second of a four-goal game at 8:08 of the second frame from Erik VanEvery and Easton Thomas. Taylor Ellis scored for the Pirates. Six Nations had a good rush going when the buzzer ended the second period with Port Dover up 4-2.
The Blackhawks gained ground on the Pirates quickly in the third when Davin MacDonald scored from Thomas and Jacobs before Jamieson netted numbers 3 and 4, from Thomas and Jacobs, MacDonald and goalie Marc General for a 5-5 comeback tie.
