SIX NATIONS – After spotting the Peterborough Timbermen two early goals, the Six Nations Snipers came to life with goals by Torrey VanEvery and Layne Smith to pull even after the first quarter in Saturday night’s Arena Lacrosse League action played at the ILA Saturday.

Haodais Maracle gave Six Nations a 3-2 lead from VanEvery at 4:25 of the second quarter to start a see-saw period which ended with the teams tied at 5-5 at the half.

Tom Montour and Maracle evened the score again at the end of the third quarter and it was 7-7 with 15 minutes remaining in regulation time.

The Timbermen completely ran out of gas in the last quarter as the Snipers picked off five unanswered goal in the last frame. VanEvery earned a five-point game with four goals and an assist.

Newly arrived Craig Point, contributed a goal and three assists for Six Nations as did Layne Smith while Maracle scored three to lead the Snipers offensively.

In other ALL action, Jeff Wittig scored the game winner from Chris Attwood, to earn the 12-11 win for the St. Catharines ShockWave over the Toronto Monarchs.

It will be a very busy weekend in the ALL this coming Feb.18. Saturday night at the ILA, the Six Nations Snipers host the St. Catharines ShockWave in a 7 p.m. start. Meanwhile, at the Syl Apps Arena in Paris, the RiverWolves take on the Timbermen of Peterborough at 8 p.m.

The addition of VanEvery and Craig Point to the Snipers lineup has already shown fruit as the Snipers continue to build towards what they hope to be the inaugural championship winners of the ALL cup.

To date, Roger Vyse leads the Snipers in scoring with 11 goals, 20 assists for 31 points in six games. Haodais Maracle in next with six goals and 20 assists for 26 points and Travis Longboat with 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points. On the back end is the proven goaltending tandem of Warren Hill and Chase Martin behind a solid wall of defensive specialists.
