OHSWEKEN— The confidence level is sky high for the Six Nations Pee Wee LL #1 club, who have now won five straight games.
Most recently on Saturday, February 15th, Six Nations were led by a two- goal effort from forward Aubri John as they entertained the Gaylord Powless Arena faithful with a 7-1 win against the Norwich Knighthawks.
“We work together and play as a team,” John said in regards to what the team has been doing well. “Also passing.”
Following a scoreless opening period, Six Nations offence went to work starting with Billy Whitlow who 1:52 into the second picked up a lose puck before racing in on a semi-breakaway and roofing the puck for that opening goal. From that point, the goals kept coming as Six Nations poured on the pressure and were rewarded with three more goals in a little over a four- minute span from John, Harley Johns and Vhan Van Every for the commanding 4-0 advantage.
“I’m excited,” Aubri John said about the feeling he gets scoring goals. “Getting goals, playing with teammates and making friends,” is what John says he likes best about hockey.
Continuing to pour on the offence, Six Nations didn’t slow down as Aubri John celebrated his second goal which came 1:04 into the third and was followed by two more from Mitchell King and Athan Martin as they successfully earned another valuable win.
“I like the competition,” Aubri Johns said. Johns, who is a big fan of Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane also added, “That second goal was my favorite. I just picked up the puck, shot it and it went in.”
These are definitely exciting times for the Six Nations Pee Wee LL#1 squad.
