OHSWEKEN – The Jr. C Six Nations Warriors miss a golden opportunity to overtake the first place Wilmot Wild Saturday afternoon at the GPA, losing 15-8.
The teams were even at 3-3 after the first period with Spencer Martin, Sid Powless and Mitch Henhawk finding room in the Wilmot net while the Wild kept pace.
The game suddenly went sideways for the Warriors in the second period when Wilmot accounted for six goals while holding the Warriors to one, that scored by Daniel Henhawk.
The Wild added six more third period goals, with Steve Harris scoring three third period goals for the Rebels. Lyle Jonathan also scored in a losing cause.
The Warriors took a 7-0 first period score against Oakville, Sunday afternoon at the GPA, and rode it to a 15-9 final over the Buzz.
Heading into this week’s games, the Warriors are in third place in the Western Division, one point behind second place Fergus and one point ahead of Oakville. Wilmot still leads the league with a 9-1-0 record.
Saturday, June 11, the Warriors and the Thistles go at it again, this time at the Gaylord Powless Arena, at 7 p.m.
