SIX NATIONS —The Six Nations Junior ‘B’ Rebels are solidifying themselves in the top spots of the league; they now sit undefeated after 11 scheduled games.
In defeating the Welland Generals 12-6 the week before, the Rebels visited the Hamilton Bengals Devils within the Dave Andreychuk Arena in the evening on Thursday, May 18.
A closer game than usual ensued, with Rahonwinetha Elijah putting the first goal of the game away. Followed by goals from Damonie Thomas, Anahilis Doxtatar and Winter Rivera consecutively. The Bengals mustered a two-goal response by the end of the period. In the second, the Bengals opened scoring, while Rahonwinetha Elijah went for his second goal, followed by Hodo Martin, Tayton Skye and Anahilis Doxtatar for his second. Two goals were earned by the Bengals in between as Macay Jimerson scored the final for the period. This put the game at 9-5.
Coming into the third period, Anahilis Doxtatar came in for his third, with a single put up by the Bengals. Uninterrupted, Winter Rivera went on to earn himself three consecutive goals, for a streamline-hat-trick, and Anahilis Doxtatar went for his fourth. To close scoring, the Rebels sat back and the Bengals put three up before the end. The final closed at 14-9, a closer game for the Rebels than many previous.
Later, on the following night, Friday, May 19, inviting the Point Edward Pacers to the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena put up the highest number of goals in a single game for the Rebels.
