Six Nations Blackhawks maul Tavistock

OHSWEKEN — The Six Nations Blackhawks midget reps outshone Tavistock, Sunday afternoon at the  Gaylord Powless Arena, taking the happy end of a 5-1 final score. Six Nations had a step on Tavistock all game, but the final score does not exactly indicate how hard the Blackhawks had to play against a hard hitting and fast team, as Tavistock were Sunday afternoon.

There was a lot of traffic behind the net and collisions like this kept everyone on their toes as both teams didn’t hesitate to apply the body when given a chance. But in the end, Six Nations repelled the Tavistock advances and collected a 5-1 win for their efforts. Photo by Jim Windle

Darren White scored from Ross Hill at 2:57 to set the stage at 1-0 for Six Nations after one period of play. Sandy Porter whistled a wrist shot from the point that found its mark at 14:24 for the 2-0 goal. Johnny Miller and Isaiah Whitlow assisted. Another Blackhawks point shot eluded the Tavistock goalie for the 3-0 goal.

Tavistock got into the game near the mid-way of the game but there would be no more as Six Nations tightened up defensively and Caleb Martin was a wall in the Six Nations net.

Tavistock thought it had its second goal late in the period but it was called back after a huddle of officials judged against letting the goal stand.

White put a second notch on his stick with 7:13 left in the third period with a shot through traffic that pin-balled off of several legs before going in. George Bomberry closed out the scoring with a shot that deflected off a defensemen for the 5-1 final.
