OHSWEKEN – The Sr. B Six Nations Rivermen took a 2-0 lead in the best of five semi-final series against the Oakville Titans Sunday in Oakville with an 11-6 win.

Saturday, August 1st, the Titans return to the GPA for their biggest game of the year where they could face elimination against the powerful Rivermen.

Oakville rebounded with a huge second period scoring six goals on Warren Hill while allowing two, giving them a 6-5 lead entering the third period on a high. But the Rivermen, with a roster chock full of NLL and Major Series experience knew what had to be done and they did it.

Accounting for all six third period goals for the 11-6, Rivermen Game #2 win of the best of five series. Marty Hill scored the first two goals of the period followed by VanEvery, Kyle Childerhouse, Rodd Squire and Roger Vyse.

The Six Nations Rivermen took game #1 of the Sr. B playoffs with a 12-5 win over the Oakville Titans at the Gaylord Powless Arena, July 24th.

Roger Vyse (2G,4A) and Wayne VanEvery (3G-4A) continue to tear up the league in the playoffs and on Friday, between them, they picked up 5 goals and 8 assists.

Very early in the game, Titans’ Mack Abbott suffered what looked like a serious shoulder injury, which delayed the game about 15 minutes. He was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Once the play began again, Oakville, pressed the Rivermen and were rewarded with a 3-2 first period lead with goals scored by Mike Gillan, Todd Kozak, and Eric Boyle. Cory Bomberry and Brock Boyle tallied for the Rivermen.

Six Nations then put it in gear and dominated the rest of the game leading to the 12-5 win. Also contributing to the win were Cory Bomberry (1G,2A), Marty Hill (1G,1A), Murray Porter (1G), Randy Martin (1G), Boyle (1G), Stu Martin (1G), Jacob Crans (1G), Rodd Squire Jr. (3A), Delby Powless (2A), Tom Montour (2A), Isaiah Kicknosway (1A), and Travis Bland (1A).

VanEvery and Murry Porter were tossed from the game very late in the third but got first dibs on the shower.
