SIX NATIONS — The Six Nations Rebels open their 2018 Jr. B lacrosse season Friday night, April 13th at the ILA at 8 pm against the Hamilton Bengals. This year’s journey began where last year’s journey ended, on Sunday, July 30, 2017, when the Orangeville Northmen eliminated them from the playoffs.
The Rebels will be looking for a return to the run of an unprecedented four Founders Cups between 2011 and 2014. They also held the Cup in 2007 and 2008 with the very first Founders Cup coming to Six Nations in 1997.
Last year the Rebels sagged in the playoffs after a league-leading 38 points in the regular season with 19 wins and only one loss. They were led last year by Layne Smith with an amazing 112 points in 20 games, but something went sideways in the playoffs.
But that was then and this is now and the new Rebels are ready to show Six Nations what they have.
