SIX NATIONS — Twelve games into the 2018 Jr. B lacrosse season the Six Nation s Rebels are 12-0 and lead all Ontario Jr. B divisions in points. What’s very telling about the Rebels statistics so far is that despite out-scoring their opponents (????) there is not a Six Nation Rebel on the individual league scoring list until Chayton King’s 26 goals and 25 assists in eighth place across the league.
The next Rebel on the list is Riley Miller way down at 19th spot on the league list. That is telling of a team that is incredibly balanced with all lines equally dangerous. Keep in mind the Rebels as a team has scored 169 goals, tops in the league.
Saturday afternoon at Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound, the scoring parade continued as the Rebels broke 20 against the NorthStars with a 20-6 win. The Rebels could have gone home after the 11-2 first period They added another six in the second period and three in the third.
This is also a Rebels squad that will not be intimidated. They have the back-ally part of their game as well. If anyone gets frustrated by the scoreboard and they try to intimidate, they are met with a team that also knows how to look after themselves and each other.
The scoring began 19 seconds after the opening face-off when Wes Whitlow led the scoring parade. Soon the Owen Sound net was bulging with almost every shot as the North Star’s defence was all but non-existent, and their goaltending suspect.
There wasn’t much relief for the Stars in the second as Garret Vyse-Square, Associate payer, Travis Staats and Riley Miller extended Six Nations lead to 15-2 by 8:07.
Owen Sound’s only bright spot on the floor was Mike Flegehen wedged two goals in-between the Six Nations Rebels’ Riley Miller, his second of the period, and Chayton King’s third of the game.
OwenSound scored first in the gird period but it failed to spark any kind of come-back, as the Rebs dumped in three more in the third as they coasted to the 20-6 final. Adding points to their scoring statistics were Garret Vyse-Square (5G,5A), Daylen Hill (3G,4A), Justin Martin (2G,4A), Riley Miller (4G,2A), Wes Whitlow (2G,4A), Chayton King (3G,1A), Travis Staats (1G), Bo Peltier (3A), Jesse Longboat (3A), and Adam Martin (1A). Goaltenders Keegan Thomas and Daniel Hill split the Six Nations duties with Hill registering the win.
Friday, May 18th, at the ILA in Six Nations, the Rebels took a 12-4 win over the visiting Point Edward Pacers of the Mid-West division. There Pacers were no match as the Rebels easily built a 5-1 first period and a 6-1 second.
By the time the final buzzer sounded, Kobe Whitcomb scored three and assisted on one, Chayton King has three assists and a pair of goals, Mason Hill, Riley Miller, had two goals, and two assists and Khan General scored one and assisted on two.
This coming Friday night, the Rebels will host the Orageville Northmen in what is always a spirited affair, beginning at 8 pm., and a road game to Elora, Sunday May 27th, and a rare Tuesday night tilt in Niagara against the Thunderhawks.
