PARIS – The Paris RiverWolves ran away from the Six Nations Snipers in Arena Lacrosse League action at the Syl Apps Arena, 18-10 Saturday to move into a three-way tie for first place between the Oshawa Outlaws, Six Nations Snipers.
St Catharines ShockWave and Toronto Monarchs share the next plateau with two wins and two losses for four points each. Bringing up the rear is the Peterborough Timbermen who are still looking for their first win in franchise history.
Six Nations took a 3-2 first quarter lead after Quinn Powless scored twice at 7:32 and 8:37 respectively.
Andy Campbell made it 2-1 before Roger Vyse stepped up with his first of four goals and four assists, making it 3-1 for Six Nations.
Brenden Thenhaus closed the gap for Paris before the first quarter ended with the Snipers leading 3-2.
In the second quarter Six Nations peeled off another five goals, two more than Paris to end the half with Six Nations leading 8-5.
Then, the Snipers sent their uniforms out for the third quarter, but that was about it, as Paris scored the only eight goals of the period leaving Sniper fans slack-jawed wondering what happened.
With the score 13-8 in favour of the RiverWolves, the Snipers had a big hill to climb, which proved insurmountable as the Wolves kept coming outscoring Six Nations 5-2 in the period, and 18-10 on the game. Quinn Powless scored three and assisted on two in the loss.
For Paris, Thenhaus scored five and assisted on four, and Dan Keane went 2-7 as each earned nine points.
There is a full schedule of ALL action this coming weekend as the Six Nations Snipers travel to Peterborough with no intention of being the Timbermen’s victim.
The Oshawa Outlaws will be in Paris at 8 p.m., Saturday Feb. 11, as the Toronto Monarchs visits the ShockWave in St. Catharines.
