Rivermen split double home opener

OHSWEKEN – The Six Nations Rivermen skinned the Sarnia Beavers 18-6 at the Gaylord Powless Arena, Sunday, afternoon after being doubled up on by the Ennismore James Gang 10-5 in Friday night’s home opener, also at the GPA.

Sunday, the Beavers opened the scoring at 4:07 but Holden Vyse responded from Justin Gibson and Jeff Powless, less than a minute later.

Beavers’ Colin McDowell scored two quick ones at 8:56 and 9:52 to give Sarnia a 3-1 lead at the halfway point of the first period.

The Rivermen continued to roll over the Beavers in the second period building up an 11-2 lead before Tom Quinn and Michael Fleming scored Sarnia’s fourth and fifth goals. Holden Vyse popped another one in with 38 second left in the second period.

The Rivermen showed Sarnia no mercy at all in the third by scoring another five more before the Beavers beat Jeff Powless at 13:43.

Six Nations added their 18th goal at 15:38 for the 18-6 final score.

Friday night, the season opened with the Rivermen and Ennismore keeping stride for stride throughout the first period, which ended 3-3. Six Nations scores included Justin Gibson with two, from Brock Boyle, Chancey Johnson, Cory Bomberry and Cody Jacobs.

The second period is something coach Stew Monture would rather forget as the James Gang tied the Rivermen to the tracks by dumping in the next four goals before Wayne VanEvery scored the next Six Nations goal thanks to Bomberry from Holden Vyse at 17:48.

Ennismore added another here in the final period with Wayne VanEvery accounting for the only Six Nations goal of the period, assisted by Bomberry.

The Rivermen see action this coming Sunday, May 4th, at 4 pm, when they host the Brooklin Merchants for the first time this season at the GPA.
