OAKVILLE — After weekend action in the Sr. B, the Six Nations Rivermen find themselves tied for second place with the Owen Sound Stars with two wins and one loss, after three games into the season.
The Six Nations Rivermen started well against the Oakville Titans Sunday at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre but it didn’t finish well for them as the Titans manhandled the Rivermen 18-5.
Tom Montour and Rayce Vyse scored a little more than a minute apart to at 3:23 and at 4:46, but that awoke the Titans who responded with three goals before Tom Montour closed the first period to draw even at 3-3.
After Oakville’s Eddie Renaud and Six Nations Joe Maracle Jr. traded early second period markers, it was all Oakville with a sting on five unanswered goals before Danton Miller broke it at 16:11 when it was 9-5 for the Titans.
Undaunted, the Titans banged in goals the last three goals of the second period and kept going with six third period goals for the 18-5 final.
The Rivermen were assessed nine straight penalties across three periods including the last three of the game assessed to Montour for slashing, and two to Murray Porter, plus a five minute major.
The Rivermen will be seeking revenge when the Titans come to Six Nations, Friday May 18, at 8 pm at the Gaylord Powless Arena. A win will move the Rivermen into a tie for first place with the Titans. The Rivermen will be led by cousins Roger and Rayce Vyse who are one and two on the Rivermen points list. Rayce has three goals and six assists, and Roger has two goals and six assists.
