Offensive Gem by Dan Lintner, Redmen De-Claw Kodiaks
In the last four games the Redmen lost to Peterborough, defeated Brampton, lost to Six Nations and tonight took it to Cobourg by a 16-7 final. The last three Redmen regular season home games will be against Six Nations, Peterborough and Oakville and wins will be important as those are the teams seemingly jockeying for final playoff standings and home floor advantage.
The Redmen welcomed Kyle Rubisch and Chris Corbeil to the line-up after a recent trade with Brampton to bolster an already stingy defense. The Redmen also celebrated their annual Scott McMichael Minor Lacrosse Night, John Fusco (Right at Home Realtor) as game sponsor was joined by Jacqueline McMichael and Donna McMichael for the ceremonial face-off.
The Redmen played a complete game tonight, led by six goals from Dan Lintner (in a row, as a matter of fact), three from Ryan Keenan and seven helpers from Mark Matthews. They won the first period 4-2, let the Kodiaks hang around as it was 11-7 after forty and held their guests off the board in the final frame for the win.
Ian Garrison and Andrew Ecclestone had their hands full with penalty calls tonight as the heat inside Iroquois Park had the players on edge. Cobourg was one for six on the power play and the Redmen were 50 % at three for six.
Next up for the Redmen is a visit from Six Nations on Wednesday July 13, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
