SIX NATIONS — The Six Nations Rebels earned their third consecutive win over the Point Edward Pacers during their second home game at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena on Friday, April 19.
Their home opener kicked the weekend off Friday, April 12, with their first home win against the Elora Mohawks as they later went on to face the Windsor Clippers at the Forest Glade Arena on foreign soil the following Thursday to take another victory in over time.
The first period went to the Clippers, who buried once at the start of the period and again at the end. While the second and third allowed the Rebels to answer, but the Clippers pushed back. This brought the game to a head in over time 9-9 with a fixed 10 minute period.
This allowed Chayton King to score his second of the game from Marshall Powless and Austin Giles, and Darrion White to score his first from Marshall Powless. This finalized their exciting match 11-9 for the Rebels.
Trailing that match was a typical win for the Rebels, as they racked up goals against the Pacers. Although the Pacers started off the first period with a goal in under a minute, Gavin Skye with an unassisted bury, Wesley Whitlow, Mason Hill, Marshall Powless and Austin Giles each scored consecutive singles while Chayton King buried twice to close the period.
The second period allowed another round of consecutive goals from Wesley Whitlow, Marshall Powless, Chayton King and Justin Martin. The Pacers answered twice before Daylen Hill, Sidney Powless and Justin Martin closed the period with buries.
The third period opened scoring for Dawit Martin, and Wesley Whitlow and Mason Hill followed with their third and second goals of the game each. The pacers mustered one more goal by the end but finalized the game 17-5 for the Rebels.
Top point earners for this game included Chayton King and Mason Hill (2g, 1a), Marshall Powless (2g, 3a) and Wesley Whitlow (3g, 4a).
This coming Thursday the Rebels will visit Blue Devils ground in London at the Nichols Centre, and will host the Owen Sound North Stars at home within the ILA on Friday at 8 p.m..
