HALTON – The Six Nations Jr. C Warriors put the period on an incredibly successful regular season schedule, Wednesday night, June 28 at the Mold-Master SportsPlex against the Halton Hills Bulldogs.
The Dogs put up little resistance against the powerhouse Warriors, as Six Nations easily defeated them 12-5. Once again, the goal scoring was well distributed on the bench with no really big stars carrying the team’s offence.
That being said, that does not mean they don’t have that kind of player. They do, in guys like Marshall Powless, who collected 40 goals and 33 assists for 73 points in 12 regular season games played. But it’s the contributions from elsewhere in the lineup that is at the root of the Warriors success to date.
The Six Nations Jr. C Warriors will finish in first and get the home floor advantage when the playoffs begin this Tuesday night, July 4th, at the Haldimand Arena in Caledonia against the last place Caledon Bandits. The Bandits have not won a game all season. Game 2 of the best-of-three series will be played in Caledon, Wednesday night and if a third game is needed, it will come back to the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA), Thursday, July 6, at 8 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Brantford Warriors began their post season, Monday, July 3, at the Gretzky Centre against the Oakville Buzz with Game 2 scheduled for July 6, at the Joshua’s Creek Arena, at 7:30 p.m. Should a third game be needed, it will be played at noon, July 7, at the Gretzky Main Rink.
