OHSWEKEN – The Wallaceburg Thrashers scored first and last Saturday night at the Gaylord Powless Arena in Ohsweken. But in between, in the second period, the Six Nations Rivermen put up six goals to Wallaceburg’s one to create enough margin to protect the 11-8 win. And they needed it.

The Thrashers scored the last goal of the second period and three more in the third to make the score more respectable, but a Wallaceburg loss nonetheless.

Travis Bland and Captain Tom Monture each earned four points, Monture with a goal and three assists and Bland with two goals and two assists.

It was Jake Bomberry’s first game in a Rivermen sweater this year and he rewarded the team with two goals and an assists.

Only two games into the season, there are still a lot of players coach Stew Monture and his staff will have to evaluate as they go on but Monture is happy with the talent pool he has to select from.

“This coming weekend should give us a chance to whittle the roster down a bit,” he says. “I figure by our fifth or sixth game we will have our roster more written in stone, but I think we are improving in depth week by week.”

The defending Presidents Cup champion Rivermen will be hosting the Ennismore James Gang at the PGA this Friday, May 13th at 8 p.m., at the Gaylord Powless Arena, before traveling to Wallaceburg, Saturday.
