Ohsweken Demons begin 2015 season in Niagara

HAGERSVILLE, ON –This Sunday, January 18, the Ohsweken Demons hit the road to St. Catharines for a highly anticipated match up with the Niagara Lock Monsters at 2 p.m. at the Meridian Centre. 

The last time Niagara and Ohsweken faced off against one another was in the 2014 Creator’s Cup Championship, where the Lock Monsters won in overtime. 

The Demons will look to kick off 2015 with a big win over the team that took their Creator’s Cup title from them. Despite losing top point producer, Chris Attwood to the Rochester Knighthawks, the Demons are full of offensive threats including Wayne Van Every, who led the team with goals in 2013. 

Van Every will have strong support from CLax veterans Tom Montour, Josh Johnson and Roger Vyse. In net, the Demons will see the return of Jake Henhawk, as well as the addition of Chase Martin.

Coming off a tough loss last weekend, the Lock Monsters are eager to turn things around in their home arena. Home turf has been kind to Niagara over the past two seasons, where they’ve racked up a record of 8-3. The team is optimistic their new home at the Meridian Centre will help them continue their winning ways in an important match up against Ohsweken. 

The Lock Monsters will also look to veterans Corey Fowler and captain Brad Favero to step up and lead some of the new faces in camp.
