Six Nations Rebels are having a ball
SIX NATIONS – Lacrosse is fun. Playing for a good team is even more fun, but winning just never gets old for the Six Nations Rebels who have enjoyed three perfect 20-0 seasons and have lost only 3 games since 2010. They have hoisted the Founders Cup five times since 2007 as the best Jr. B lacrosse franchise in the country.  After eliminating the Niagara Thunderhawks in three straight games, the Six Nations Rebels teed off on a new opponent in Jr. B post season with the Orangeville Northmen with a 7-3 win Friday night at the ILA. The game was tied at 2-2 at the end of the first period after Danton Miller and Kessler Doolittle made it 2-0 by the 1:21 mark. Once they got their feet under them, Orangeville evened the score with goals by Taylor Hartley and Shane Hillis. Jacob Bomberry and Mitch Green accounted for two more Rebels markers in the second period and opened a 5-2 lead on a powerplay at 8:46 of the third, scored by Green. Todd Greer scored the last Northmen goal at 9:47 before Miller and Tanner Baldwin created the final 7-3 score, Baldwin’s into an empty net. Chase Martin looked solid and confident in the Six Nations net for the win. Daniel Tanner suffered the loss for Orangeville. Game #2 of the Western Conference final series is set to go Wednesday, July 30 at the Tony Rose Memorial Arena in Orangeville, with Game #3 the next day, back at the ILA, before heading back to the Big Orange for Game #4, Aug. 3rd.
