OHSWEKEN, ON ‑ There was a robbery Sunday afternoon at the Gaylord Powless Arena as the visiting Twin Centres Stars stole a win from the Six Nations Midgets.

It got a bit testy along the way with several penalties called on both teams as referees tried to keep the game in check, especially in the third when Twin Centres’ Troy Hammerich lost total control taking 34 minutes in penalties plus a game misconduct in the third period alone.

Hammerich scored the first goal of the contest with a beautiful shot placed high to the glove side of starter Cody Summers in the Six Nations net. Travis Longboat tied the game at 1-1 with a close-in backhander, with 27 seconds left in the opening period.

Davin Whitlow scored two early goals in the second period for a 3-1 Six Nations lead. The Stars answered one of them at 7:30 but just nine seconds later Whitlow completed the hat trick at 7:30 to earn a 4-2 Six Nations lead. But the stars ended the second period tied at 4-4 after a pair of late period Twin Centres goals. That set up for an exciting third period.

Twin Centres’ Dustin Beam broke the tie less than a minute into the third, but Longboat erased that moments later from Tyden Hill, tying it again, at 5-5.

Tyler Bender and Will Martin added third period goals to hand the visitors a 7-5 lead with time running out.

Six Nations pulled their goalie and it paid off with a Six Nations goal to make it close at 7-6, with 26 seconds left in regulation time, but the clock beat them and Six Nations took the loss in an existing finish.
