Redmen Drop to .500 With Road Loss at the ILA
The Brooklin Redmen coming off the high that was Lacrosse Day in Durham and a dominating win over the Cobourg Kodiaks, loaded up the bus tonight for a trip to Six Nations and met the Chiefs at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena. The home side, on the strength of four goals in each of the first two periods, took the win 9-5 and a now sport a record of (7-1-0) and dropping the Redmen to (4-4-0).
Connor O'Reilly and Dan Lintner continue to lead the Redmen offensively as each had a pair tonight and are one and two in the league scoring race, O'Reilly with 46 points and Lintner with 33 and at 21 goals he leads the league in that category. O'Connor was also named one of three MSL stars for the week with three goals and 13 assists for 15 points in three games. Honourable mentions went to Ryan Keenan and Ryan MacSpadyen from the Redmen for their strong play.
The Chiefs were up 8-3 after two periods and despite two Redmen goals in just over a minute to start the third and close the gap, a late shorthanded marker from Kyle Jackson for the home side gave the Chiefs the win. The other scorer for the Redmen was Kyle Whitlow.
The Redmen don't have much time to rest as the Brampton Excelsiors (0-4-1) come to Iroquois Park for a visit Wednesday night, the two teams met May 31 for Brooklin's home opener and the Redmen took that game 11-10 in OT. The Redmen will start the second half of the regular season on Sunday in Cobourg and then host the Chiefs on June 28, 2017.
