SIX NATIONS – August has been a good month for the Sr. B Six Nations Rivermen as they dismantled the Owen Sound North Stars in three straight games to win the OSBLL title and earn a birth in the Presidents Cup Championships.

Meanwhile the Can/Am Six Nations Slash, who finished second behind the Native Sons, will hosts for the 2017 Presidents Cup tournament, at the GPA, which begins Sunday, August 27 beginning at 9 a.m., with St. Regis Braves (TNSLL) and the Kahnawake Mohawks (QC).

The Rivermen open their Championships run at 12-noon against the Nova Scotia Privateers. The Slash go up against the St. Albert Miners (AB) at 3 p.m., Saskatoon and the Ladner Pioneers (BC) are on at 6 p.m. and Kahnawake and the Can/Am Champion Native Sons do battle at 9 p.m.

The Rivermen defeated the Owen Sound North Stars 11-9 in Game 1 of the OSBLL finals, Aug. 4. That was followed by a very close 11-10 win at the Harry Howell Arena the next night. The final stake in the heart for the North Stars came Aug. 11, as the Rivermen ended the Owen Sound season with a 13-11 Game 3 win to sweep the series.

The North Stars didn’t make it easy in Game 3. Backs against the wall, the Stars put all they had on the floor to force overtime at the GPA. The Rivermen scored three in the 10-minute overtime period after the Stars spent all they had to tie the game and had nothing left for the OT.

Gregg Longboat led the Rivermen offense with three goals and three assists. Kedoh Hill scored one and assisted on four and Cory Bomberry had a big night as well with two goals and three assists.

Danton Miller, Wayne Hill and Jr. B call up, Layne Smith, each added two goals and an assist for the OSBLL league championship. Jacob Crans scored one and assisted on two. Goaltending was split between Warren Hill and Chase Martin.

All that set up for the Presidents Cup Championships, hosted by the Six Nations Slash of the Can/Am at the ILA.
