ENNISMORE — The undefeated James Gang did battle against the Six Nations Sr. B Rivermen in Ennismore Saturday night and came out the 12-6 victors, reducing the Six Nations record to a still decent, 4-2, good enough for a second place tie with the St. Catharines Saints.
The Gang went ahead 2-0 before Wayne VanEvery put the Rivermen canoe in the water with his goal at 10:56, from Delby Powless and Cory Bomberry. Justin Kulla ended the first period for Ennissmore who were leading 3-1.
It was 7-3 after two periods with Holden Vyse accounting for both Six Nations second period goals.
The Rivermen opened the third period with a promising start, scoring the first two goals by VanEvery and Jacob Bomberry, to draw to within two goals of the leaders. But the James Gang’s Josh Wasson McQuigge went on a three-goal spree to wrestle away the Rivermen lead. Delby Powless scored the last Six Nations’ goal of the night from Justin Gibson and VanEvery. Mack Obrien scored the 11th and 12th goal for Ennismore at 17:17 and 18:59 to seal the Rivermen’s fate.
The Six Nations Rivermen are back at it Sunday June 1st at the Gaylord Powless Arena when they host the Oakville Titans, at 7 pm.
