Whitby Warriors open with a 12-10 win Over Peterborough

The Whitby Warriors came out of the gate firing last night but lost their edge somewhere in the middle frame. The Lakers took the lead and held it until the dying moments of the game when the home side woke up. Four unanswered goals in rapid succession sealed the Lakers fate when it looked as though they were going to spoil “Tuggy Passfield” Night. The Warriors started Jesse Gill in net as I believe Joel Weber has yet to even practice due to a hockey commitment. Gill looked good at times, but as a previous poster noted there was sloppy play all around.

I was disappointed at the turn out, this being the home opener and minor lacrosse night. The Town was represented by Councilor Joe Drumm; the man responsible for ensuring the survival of the $1 Hot Dog and Doug Luey VP from the league office.

Kyle Clancy from the Lakers impressed as did Guerin and Brock Sorenson with Clancy taking home player of the game award for the visitors. Steve Hutchins ex captain of the Gaels brought his edgy style to the floor scored a couple and I am quite sure left an impression both physically and mentally on a few Lakers. Hutchins received player of the game for the home side, a well deserved nod.  His leadership and toughness are something the Warriors have been missing for a couple of years now, I am sure he will become a fan favorite.

No Kyle Sorenson, word has it he isn’t interested in playing in the Boro and has asked for a trade, but no deal has been struck yet. Just a couple of minor scraps nothing to write about. With lots of guys still missing it is hard to form an opinion yet as to how these teams will fare in the long run. Warriors face the expansion Akwesasne (help me here ) Thunder?Lightning? on Tuesday the 15th , at the home of the World Famous $1 Hot Dog Iroquois Park arena .I was in error as I reported that game tickets are $8 they have remained at $6 please excuse this typo.
