The Sr. B Six Nations Rivermen hold onto the top spot in the OLA Sr. B after defeating the Oakville Titans 16-7 at the Gaylord Powless Arena Saturday night, led by an 8-point night racked up by Roger Vyse, with four goals and four assists.
The Rivermen fell just short of making it a four-league sweep last season losing in the Presidents Cup playoffs. This season they have certainly bulked up for the challenge adding several former Major Series players and NLL’ers.
After nine games played the Rivermen carry a 7-2-0 record, their only losses both at the hands of the second place St. Catharines Saints.
Six Nations rebounded from an early 2-1 deficit to take a 5-3 first period lead with two goals by Vyse, a powerplay goal by Cory Bomberry, and two shorthanders scored by Brock Farmer and Rodd Squire.
Vyse put two more up in the second and along with goals by Jacob Crans, Squire, Bomberry and Delby Powless, the Rivermen pushed it to an 11-4 lead after two periods.
Picking up third period goals were Randy Martin, with two, Stu Martin also with two, and Bomberry for the hat-trick. Warren Hill earned the win in the Six Nations goal.
The Rivermen host the Brooklin Merchants, Saturday evening at the GPA, beginning at 8 pm when they hope to put a little distance between themselves and the Saints who hold two games in hand and are only to points behind Six Nations.
