Festival finished for Peewee and Bantam Rockhounds
by Randy Pascal

Both of the Sudbury Rockhounds teams competed at the 2017 Ontario Lacrosse Association Festival this past weekend in Whitby would go right down to their third and final round robin game before being eliminated from playoff contention at provincials.

The Sudbury Peewees likely came closest to sliding through, dropping their opener 6-5 as the Cambridge Chiefs scored the game-winning goal with just 11 seconds to play on Friday morning. Brandon Roney exploded for a four-goal performance, leading the way offensively for the Rockhounds, with Tyler Thompson adding the remaining goal.

The locals bounced back nicely later in the day, crowning the Nepean Knights 7-2 as Jacob Barney drilled home the hat-trick. Bradford Scarpellini chipped in with a two goal effort, with Alex Hachez and Roney capping things off.

Needing a win on Saturday to move on, the Sudbury lads were stifled on the attack, blanked 5-0 by the Oshawa Blue Knights. The Bantam Rockhounds, meanwhile, took a different route at the all-Ontario championships, picking up a hard fought 2-1 win over the Huntsville Hawks in their opener.

Goals from Aidan Teeter and Ben Harris provided just enough scoring for the Sudbury crew, as goaltender Cloe Douillette and a very solid defensive effort by the Rockhounds limited the Huntsville chances.

Ultimately, game two became the make or break match, as the Wallaceburg Griffins edged the northern squad 5-4. Harris registered his second and third goals of the tournament, joined on the scoresheet by Teeter and Zak Thompson.

Things unraveled quickly for the Rockhounds in their finale, thumped 9-1 by the West Durham Rockmen. The Sudbury Novice Rockhounds leave for Whitby later this week, facing Novice E Group 3 play against the Arthur Aces, Nepean Knights and Cambridge Chiefs.
