Speck Blog: Slash Season Over

July 31, 2014

It’s always tough writing a blog about ending your season earlier than expected, but thats what I find myself doing yet again this year as our team was eliminated in a deciding game 5 in Onondaga against the high powered Redhawks on Sunday afternoon. Our regular season ended with us finishing 10-4 and securing 3rd overall place in the league. We played Buffalo Creek in the first round and swept…


Speck Blog: Slash Are 7-1 in CanAm Play

June 4, 2014

This past weekend saw us up in action for a home game against the Pinewoods Smoke, a team who we recently beat in OT on the road by a final of 13-12 two weeks ago in a tightly contested game. We were missing many regulars so the score was probably a bit closer than it should have been for that one, but it set a good tone for the rematch…


Speck Blog: Slash Gain Victory Over Arrows

May 14, 2014

Last week we made the long trip down to Salamanca, NY to play against the Allegany Arrows at the gorgeous Seneca Allegany Community Centre. This is a top of the line facility complete with a basketball court, swimming pool, splash pad, sports field, weight room, and a lacrosse floor of course. This place is always lots of fun to visit and play in so needless to say we were all…

Winning that game…

Well it’s hard to believe that the end of the regular season is just around the corner for us, but here we are 7 games in sitting at 2-5 with one game remaining against Barrie this Sunday at the Molson Center. As a team we are looking to finish the season on a winning note heading into playoffs as we have lost our last 3 games, losing to Barrie in…


Speck Blog: Cyclops Fall to Demons

March 10, 2014

This week our team went out and lost a tough game to the Niagara Lock Monsters in a relatively low scoring 11-7 final. Our goaltender Jay Preece made several outstanding saves to keep us in the game and give us extra chances to try and close the gap near the end, but we couldn’t find a way to beat Dave DiRuscio when it mattered as he was solid all night….


Speck Blog: Cyclops Tough Loss to Barrie

March 3, 2014

First off it’s best for me to give a little intro myself so you all know who I am. My name is Jamie Speck (known to most as simply “Speck”) and I play for the Southwest Cyclops in the Canadian Lacrosse League. My hometown is Toronto but I currently live in Mississauga and attend Humber College where I study Sport Management and will be graduating in April. As far as…
