SIX NATIONS – The Six Nations Rebels – winners of the national Founders Cup for the past three years – are already threatening another assault on the league record book this Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) Jr. B season.
The Six Nations Rebels are neither good guests or good hosts. So far this season, they are 4-0 and have hardly broken a sweat to do it with three wins at home and one at home. But these were not just wins, they were muggings.
Not counting Tuesday night’s game against the Niagara Thunderhawks at the ILA in Six Nations, the Rebels have scored 75 goals, while allowing only 15. That is an average of 18.75 goals per game so far, with a goals-against average of 3.75.
Sunday night the Rebels showed Welland no mercy as they recorded a 25-5 slaughter of the Generals, in Welland. Last Tuesday, May 2, they took down the Niagara Thunderhawks 18-3, and crushed the Wallaceburg Red Devils 15-4 May 1st. They opened the 2014 season with a 17-3 walk over the Owen Sound Northmen.
The Rebels were the guests of the Welland Generals this past Sunday and may not be invited back after embarrassing their hosts 25-5. The scorekeeper had to use two game sheets to record all the Six Nations goals. Chase Martin was in goal for Six Nations and made 23 saves on only 28 shots. Meanwhile, Welland goalies Graeme McCullough and Dylan Busby-Carver combined to face 75 Rebels shots.So far this young season, Jacob Bomberry leads the league in scoring 7 goals and 17 assists for 24 points in those 4 games, averaging 6 points per game.
Chase Martin is in first place amongst goaltenders with his 3.75 average in four games, the next rival being Daniel Tanner of the Orangeville Northmen with a four game average of 4.14 goals against average.
Results from Tuesday night’s game were not available by press time. The Welland Generals will be facing the Rebels again this Friday, May 9, for an 8 o’clock start at the ILA in Six Nations before taking the bus to Guelph to face the Regals for the first time this regular season Sunday night. Game time in Guelph is 7 pm.
