HOST PETERBOROUGH LAKERS RALLY FROM FIVE-GOAL DEFICIT TO DEFEAT BROOKLIN
By Sam Laskaris
The good news for the Brooklin Lacrosse Club is that it scored the first four goals of its game in Peterborough on Thursday.
But that bad news is that the host Peterborough Lakers scored 10 unanswered goals, including all seven of the third period, to down the visiting Brooklin side 12-7 in a Major Lacrosse Series contest.
Brooklin failed to score another goal after taking a 7-2 lead in the sixth minute of the second period in the match staged at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.
It was the second straight night the Brooklin club had its opponent rally from a deficit to register a win.
On Wednesday Brooklin held a 10-7 advantage over the visiting Six Nations Chiefs in a match held in Whitby. But the Chiefs managed to tie the game in regulation time and then eked out an 11-10 victory in overtime.
Sean Westley and Dyson Williams scored two goals each for Brooklin on Wednesday. Jeff Wittig, Jacob Sanders and Luke Pilcher provided the other Brooklin goals.
Brooklin will return to action on Tuesday (June 28) when it hits the road for a game versus the Chiefs.
That match, which will be held at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Hagersville, has an opening faceoff scheduled for 8 p.m.
Brooklin’s next home game is set for July 6 against the Cobourg Kodiaks. Game time for that tilt, at the Iroquois Park Sports Centre, is set for 8 p.m.
