Day five of the President’s Cup was filled with more great lacrosse action. On Thursday there were some blowouts, but also some close games and comebacks, as well as a big upset. Nonetheless, we would see high level lacrosse and athletes all over the floor in each game.
*FYI: Point Streak is not working at the moment so there will be no stats for the game recaps.*
This one wasn’t much of a contest as Caughnawaga continues to roll through this tournament. Saskatoon would put together a good fight late in the game, but it was really all Caughnawaga the whole way as they cruised to victory. Charlie Goodleaf, Ty Thompson, and Blaze Riorden would have good showing for Caughnawaga. Saskatoon would be led by Ben Lukash.
It was another one-sided affair in game two of the day as well. Oakville was able to roll through Ladner and get the 16-6 win. Oakville was led by Eddy Renaud and Ladner saw an impressive performance from Dylan Lacroix.
In a fantastic game St. Albert was able to comeback from 4-2 deficit and take control of the game. That comeback gave St. Albert the energy they needed to get the 10-5 win to get back on track after their first loss yesterday. Onondaga would see an impressive performance from Edmund Cathers and St. Albert would be led by Pat O’Meara.
Upset City!!! Capital Region pulled off the win of the day as they defeated the previously undefeated Caughnawaga Indians. This was a very exciting game as it was a battle until the end. Capital Region got up earlier and Caughnawaga wouldn’t be able to comeback all the way as they took their first loss. Blake Kenny had a big game fro Capital Region and Jacob Ruest helped lead Caughnawaga.
This game had you on the edge of your seat the entire time it was so tight. Overtime would finally decide the winner as Nanaimo was able to pull out the win as Jordan Cunningham scored the game winning goal in OT. This game was very tight as the game kept swaying from Oakville to Nanaimo and back the entire game. Oakville was led by Eddie Renaud and Nanaimo would see an impressive performance from Cory Conway in the win.
