Novice Rockhounds cap off steady climb with a win
2019-06-03
by Randy Pascal

Taking a competitive novice team into their first ever OLA (Ontario Lacrosse Association) tournament, for roughly 50% of the roster, there really isn't much better than a weekend of steady progression.

The Sudbury Novice Rockhounds capped off a four game set with a victory, one which summarized nicely the steps forward that coach Dan Mead was looking for as he bundled up his crew of young talent and made the journey to the Six Nations Confederacy last month.

The Rockhounds were trailing 2-1 after the first period and 4-1 after two before the Toronto Beaches pulled away for an 8-2 win, with Hunter Currie and Josh Bell handling the offense for the locals.

Much more offense and a much closer game in their second affair as the host Six Nations #2 reps edged Sudbury 8-7, with five different players finding the back of the net in a losing cause.

Koda Peltier and Hunter Currie paced the attack with two goals each, with Max Jouppi, Jackson Mead and Josh Bell also getting in on the fun. Inching ever closer to a victory, the Rockhounds and Nepean Knights played to a 5-5 draw as Currie netted his fourth, fifth and sixth goals of the tournament.

Bell rounded out the scoring for Sudbury with a two goal effort. Pitted against the fourth place team in the opposite division to complete the event, the locals scored three times in the third period, pulling away from Six Nations #3 by a final count of 5-2.

Hunter Currie (2), Max Jouppi (2) and Owen Angus all hit the scoresheet as the Novice Rockhounds prepare for another tournament next month. Rounding out the team roster are Brady Toulouse, Liam Hagen, Joely Angus, Andrew Roney, Lincoln Rancourt, Damien Dell, Declan McGonegal, Zeebin Ashawasegui, Malik Jakubo and Etienne Hutchings.
