Lamoureux and the Rush too much for the Stealth
by Randy Pascal

A combination of individual talent and a concerted team effort proved particularly helped for the Rush on Thursday, registering a 9-3 win over the Stealth in GSLA (Greater Sudbury Lacrosse Association) Peewee action last Thursday at the Carmichael Arena.

Xavier Esqimaux netted four goals to show the way for the Rush, with Dax Lamoureux and Connor Martin adding two each. "We usually just hog the ball, and then we lose possession all of the time," noted Lamoureux, a fifth grade student at Franco Nord.

"Playing this way helps our teammates and the newer players learn how to catch the ball and receive it. And giving other people the chance to shoot the ball, it gives you a good feeling."

Now in his third year with the GSLA, Lamoureux finds the comfort that comes with the presence of familiar faces in his spring/summer sports pastime. "All of my friends were playing, at one point, so I thought I would try it out," he said.

"You just have better co-operation on the team, because you're friends, and you like passing and playing together, so it's a lot easier." Answering for the Stealth, in a losing cause, were Cyrus, with a pair of tallies, and Max, with a solo marker, with their goaltender, Cheyden, making a boatload of big saves, despite falling victim to the Rush sharp-shooters, from time to time each period.

Action resumes this coming week in the GSLA, with games taking place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and arenas in Coniston, Copper Cliff and Carmichael serving as venues.

The GSLA rep lacrosse branch, the Sudbury Rockhounds, are looking to field three teams for the 2018 season, with tournament action set to commence in the next few weeks.

Finally, a Rockhounds' mainstay in recent years has now taken her game on the road. Goaltender Cloé Douillette is suiting up with the Thunder Bay Ice Intermediate Girls lacrosse team this summer, having cracked the Team Ontario roster the past couple of years.
