SIX NATIONS – The Six Nations Jr. C Warriors scored three goals before the first minute of Saturday night’s game at the ILA against the Mimico Mountaineers and coasted the rest of the way to a 27-4 massacre.
Fortunately for the Mountaineers, pain only lasted an hour and a have in a very quick game with virtually no penalties.
Leading the Warriors were Justin Martin (5G,3A), Wesley Whitlow (1G,7A), and Isaiah Mt. Pleasant (4G,4A). Elan Henhawk recorded his fifth straight win in the Warriors net.
The Warriors at 11-0 share the lead in the West Division with 22 points with Wilmot, 11-1-0, one point short of the Cornwall Celtics who top the East with 23 points in 14 games played.
Because of the glut of top ranking Six Nations Jr. players throughout the OLA, the Warriors carry several young players who could easily play at a higher level, but can not find room on the Jr. B Rebels or Jr. A Arrows rosters.
The creation of the Jr. C Warriors has created another option for up and coming lacrosse stars as well as a miles deep feeder system for both the Arrows and the Rebels to pull Associate Players (AP’s) from when needed.
It will be a very busy week starting Thursday June 18th, when the Warriors will be in Oakville followed by a Friday night date in Shelburne to take on the Vets. Then, after a long bus ride home, they will suit up again Saturday afternoon at 1 pm to face the well-rested and strong Wilmot Wild.
