PARIS – The Southwest Cyclops are liking their new home at the Syl Apps Arena in Paris, Ontario this CLL season. The Cyclops slipped by the Ohsweken Demons at home Saturday night with Dylan Webster making the difference with 3:33 left in the fourth quarter.
Then, on Monday afternoon in Niagara, they were doubled up, 12-6, by the last place Niagara Lock Monsters. It was last year’s Creators Cup Champion’s first win of 2015.
Southwest is in first place after weekend games, although they have played two more games than second place Ohsweken, Durham Turfdogs and Barrie Blizzard, all with 2-2-0 records.
The Demons had their chances in Paris Saturday, but could not hit the net as often as they would have liked. It seemed they were having some difficulty adjusting to Apps arena, which is considerably smaller than the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Six Nations.
This coming Friday night at the ILA, the Demons host the Lockmonsters in an 8 p.m. start. The Cyclops are at home to the Barrie Blizzard Sunday night at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, the Lockmonsters and the Blizzard do battle at 2 p.m.
