During their previous home game on Sunday, January 6, the Six Nations Snipers took a loss to the St. Catharines Shockwave 7-9 after allowing the Shockwave to take the lead in the first period.
But a strong come back was in the midst the following week, as the Snipers throttled the Oshawa Outlaws 21-14 last Sunday at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena. Goals came from scoreboard favourites including Wesley Whitlow (2), Vernon Hill (2), and Jake Bomberry (3), and racking up the most in assists included Danton Miller (3) and Tyler Brown (3).
This leaves the Snipers needing to climb a few spots in league standings to tip the scale for first place, which is currently held by the St. Catharines Shockwave with zero losses so far.
Meanwhile, the Six Nations Lady Snipers took a loss 5-8 in a match up with the Paris Timberwolves, but redeemed themselves with a shutout versus the Whitby Steelhawks 12-0 last Saturday. This sits the Lady Snipers at second behind the Timberwolves by 1 point average and tied in standings with the Lady Shockwave.
