Snipers crush RiverWolves at home, RiverWolves bite back

SIX NATIONS — The Iroquois Lacrosse Arena hosted two Mens ALL games which brought out some great lacrosse showings on Sunday, March 13.

The Oshawa Outlaws met up with the St. Catharines first at 1:00 p.m., offering a hard fought game throughout. Goals went to Lucas Beaver (2), Danton Miller (2), Caleb Wiles, Chris Atwood (3), and Carson Rees. But just shy of an equal scoreboard by the end of the game, the Outlaws took the victory stretch 12-10 over the Shockwave.

Next, the Paris RiverWolves met up with the Six Nations Snipers at 4:00 p.m.. Starting off the game with an intense lead, Travis Longboat, Scott Del Zotto and Kevin Owen Hill (2) brought up the game to a 4-1 by the end of the first quarter.

For the second, the Snipers put up a seven-consecutive-goal lead, with goals from Daylen Hill (3), Wesley Whitlow, Scott Del Zotto, Tyler Brown, and Brent Longboat. Taking the goal difference up to 11-1.

It would have been fine to stop there, but the Snipers weren’t finished. Five more goals went up from Kevin Owen Hill, Jamie Downie, Travis Longboat, Tyler Brown and Alex Tamas, finishing the third quarter at 16-5 for the Snipers.

The fourth quarter didn’t give enough for the RiverWolves to make a dent in the deficit as two more goals came from Kahn General and Tyler Brown. But, to make a dent in the Snipers morale, the RiverWolves brought up 21 minutes in penalties in the final period alone, with chippy back and forth calls for checking from behind, roughing and holding. This brought RiverWolves Gabriel Iozzo and the Snipers Tye Argent to a fighting major after a tustle that ended with Argent on the winning side.

The final came to 18-6 for the Snipers.

The next games for the Snipers fall on Saturday, March 19 at 5:00 p.m., at the Children’s Arena versus the Oshawa Outlaws.

Current standings place the Snipers in first place, trailed by the Whitby Steelhawks, Peterborough Timbermen, the Paris RiverWolves, Oshawa Outlaws, St. Catharines Shockwave and the Toronto Monarchs.
