OHSWEKEN – The question was never “if” the Six Nations Rivermen were going to win on Sunday, against the KW Velocity, only a matter of by how much. That spread ended up being 20-1.
Veterans Roger Vyse scored the game’s first four goals at the Gaylord Powless Arena (GPA) as Six Nations went on to create a 10-0 first period score. He added a fifth to make it 8-0 plus an assist on Kyle Smith’s goal for a 5-point period.
Joel Shepley and Dwayne Porter scored early in the second before KW finally got one past Warren Hill to ruin his shutout, but that would be all the offence the Velocity could gather against a strong and highly experienced Rivermen.
Two more Six Nations goals in the third period totalled 20 for the home team.
Also with multiple point games were, Mike Miller (2G,4A), Tommy Montour (1G,4A), Danton Miller (1G,3A), Stu Hill (4A), Greg Longboat (1G,3A), Rodd Squire (2G,1A), and Dwayne Porter (2G,1A).
This week will have the Rivermen rather busy beginning with a tilt with the Oakville Titans at 8 p.m. in Oakville Friday, May 12.
The Six Nations Sr. B Rivermen opened the 2017 campaign to retain the President’s Cup on the right foot with a 9-6 win over the Innismore James Gang on April 29th. Tommy Montour scored two and assisted on two to lead the Rivermen for the win.
Since then, the Rivermen had been gearing up for their second game of the brand new season, which was played Sunday evening May 7 at the Gaylord Powless Arena.
