OHSWEKEN – The Caledonia Thunder rolled into Six Nations this past Sunday afternoon in all minor rep divisions including the Bantam Southern Counties.

The Six Nations bench was decimated by this week’s lacrosse tournament in North Carolina, which took a lot of their key players out of the lineup.

Six Nations Bantams could only muster eight skaters against a full Caledonia bench, including a call up associate player, Devon Jamieson who also saw a lot of ice.

There was no scoring in the first period as Six Nations and Caledonia felt each other out and both goalies kept the puck out their respective nets.

But in the second, Caledonia broke out scoring an unassisted goal at 1:09 by Caledonia captain, Josiah Byers.

Brad Adshead scored to make it 2-0 on a pass out which Longboat stopped, but could not control the rebound in the crease.

That was closely followed by Byers’ second of the game at 8:17 from Jarrett Fitzpatrick and Maxime Pleau.

It wasn’t until 13:04 of the 15 minute second period that Six Nations got on the board with Davin Whitlow banking a shot off the Caledonia goalie from behind the net for Six Nations only goal of the game.

One minute and ten seconds into the third period Caledonia struck again after Six Nations got bottled up in their own end and were unable to clear the zone.

Brad Adshead put a second notch in his stick with assists going to Botting and Pleau, to make it a 4-1 final for the visiting Thunder.

The save of the game had to be the first shot Six Nations back-up goalie, Richard Jonathan faced after replacing Longboat. Jonathan snagged a deflected point shot and held on for the face-off, which was appreciated by both Six Nations and Caledonia fans.
