SIX NATIONS –The Can/Am Six Nations Slash hold down second place after defeating the Buffalo Creek Thunder, 18-12 at the Gil Lay Memorial Arena in a game that saw a total of 107 shots recorded by both teams with the Slash accounting for 64 of them.

It was a wild first period, which opened with Tyler Bomberry’s goal scored at 5:15. That was quickly answered by the Thunder’s Mike Sandleback and Travis Turner for a 2-1 Buffalo Creek lead.

But at the halfway mark in the period, the Slash started to get some traction and the period looked like a shootout with several end-to-end rushes going both ways and lots of scoring. By the end of the first frame the Slash held a narrow 7-6 lead.

There was no question in the second as Six Nations pushed the score their way with six, second period goals while allowing just one.

The Slash would need that big period as the Thunder began to roll in the third. But the Slash was able to thwart the comeback attempt in a 5-5 third period for the final 18-12 score.

Mike McLaughlin and Joey Summerfield led the Slash with three goals and six assists each, and Casey Hill with four goals. Colton Hart earned three goals and three assists in the Slash win with Brandon Styres in the Six Nations net.

The Can/Am Slash will pull into the Genesse Valley Arena to face the Rochester River Monsters, Friday, June 16th, before hosting the first place Native Sons on Saturday night at the ILA at 7 p.m.

The Native Sons are undefeated after nine starts while the Slash are 5-3 after eight games. This could be a very important game if they are able to provide that first loss to the Thunder, and for the Slash to pull closer to them at the same time.
