SIX NATIONS — With new legs carrying the team that was last years silver provincial medalists, the Six Nations Intermediate Girls Warriors welcomed the Simcoe Timber Wolves to the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena on Saturday for their first home game.
Both teams looked out of practice as majority of the three periods were spent with both sides fighting for ball possession — as to be expected for their first seasonal game.
However, those that have kept their sticks in their hands throughout the winter months showed up on the scoreboard.
Mia Martin broke through Timber Wolves defence nearly unassisted, after snatching a pass from Mckenzie Bomberry (88) and following through with a bury. This closed the scoring for the first period.
Following into the second Natalie Hill scored within two minutes of the start from Mia Martin, who earned her second point. The Timber Wolves angered once, before McKenzie Bomberry (88) buried one for herself from Lauryn Hill.
This was answered by the Timber Wolves in the third, however, Goaltender Ky Maracle made a lob pass to Cloe VanEvery, who ran it up on a break away and scored glove side.
This finalized their first game 4-2, with a lot of time and room for improvement under the guidance of a newer bench; Carlton Hill and Tony Henhawk.
Their next home game will be on Thursday, May 23, at the Hagersville Arena at 9 p.m., hosting the St. Catharines Athletics.
