Arrows comeback fall short by one

SIX NATIONS So far anyway, it has not been a homer series for either the Six Nations Arrows or the Peterborough Lakers. The Lakers won Game #1, 12-7 at the ILA in Six Nations, and the Arrows Express took Game #2, 15-10 in Peterborough. Thursday night, back at the ILA, the Arrows fought back from a 5-0 first period deficit to push Game #3 into OT. But they could not get that last goal, as the Lakers won it 12-11.

The Arrows came back in the second period to outscore the Lakers 6-3 to complete 40 minutes of play with Peterborough still leading but only by an 8-6 score. The Arrows outscored them again in the third period, 5-3 to force the OT period after an exciting second half of the third.

But it was not to be for Six Nations as Lakers’ Josh Currier scored the winner. Newly drafted by the NHL Colorado Avalanche, Brandon Montour, had a big game scoring three and assisting on three, while Johnny Powless netted three and added an assist.

Starter Don Alton was replaced with Doug Jamieson to start the second period and finished the game.

The Arrows hope the trend of the home court curse continues for one more game as the series moves to Peterborough for Game 4, Friday night, before returning to the ILA, Sunday July 27th at 7 pm.
