Arrows Take it to Lakers

The Six Nations Arrows took it to the Peterborough Lakers early and often on Sunday in Junior A action at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena. Randy Staats scored 35 seconds into the game before and then was tossed from the game 1:25 later for fighting with Curtis Perry.

It looked like the momentum was going to swing Peterborough’s way after that as Riley Quinlan scored just 35 seconds later to knot the game at one. The Arrows took over after that as they scored six unanswered goals and they never looked back.

Six Nations was all over Peterborough in the opening 40 minutes as they led 5-1 after the first period and then 10-3 after two. The Lakers woke up briefly in the third, outscoring the Arrows 5-4 but it was too little too late as Six Nations went on to win 14-8.

Turner Evans led the way for the Lakers with two goals and one assists, Josh Currier had two goals while Jake Withers, Zach Herreweyers, Nate White and Quinlan each had singles. Nick Weis, Eric Shewell, Jeff Swift, Brad Baker, Donovan Fleischer, Herreweyers, and Cam Milligan each chipped in with one assist apiece.

One bright spot for the Lakers was the decisive victory by Eric Shewell in his second period fight against Chris George. Shewell took a major high stick to the face and then went on to fill George with left and right haymakers, leaving a huge welt under his opponents left eye and blood trickling down his cheek.

Next action for the Lakers is Monday night when they host the Whitby Warriors; you can listen to the game live at 8pm on the Lacrosse Radio Network.
