The Iroquois Ironmen’s dynamic duo of Kedoh Hill and Chris Attwood combined for 15 points to lead the team to its first win of the Canadian Lacrosse League season, downing the Ohsweken Demons 17-14 in a game that saw the two teams combine for 130 shots on goal. Hill poured in 4 goals and 5 assists to top all scorers. Attwood had a pair of goals and 4 helpers. Iroquois led 10-8 at the half but trailed 13-11 after the Demons scored the first two goals of the fourth quarter. They turned it back around, though, with 5 straight goals for what turned out to be the winning margin.

Despite the high score, both goalies were honoured among the game’s three stars. Iroquois Jake Lazore stopped 47 of the 61 shots he faced to earn the win. At the other end of the floor, Jeff Powless was even busier. The Ironmen directed 69 shots on goal, of which Powless managed to turn aside 52.

Cody Johnson and Elijah Printup each added 2 goals and 2 assists for the Iroquois. Tom Montour was the top scorer for the Demons with a goal and 6 assists for a 7-point night. Roger Vyse and Cory Bomberry each scored twice and added 3 assists for Ohsweken.

In Brampton, the Toronto Shooting Stars roared out to a 5-1 lead but were caught by the Brampton Inferno so the score was tied-6-6 at the half. The Stars then won each of the third and fourth quarters to escape the Powerade Centre with a 13-10 win that jumped them into a first-place tie with Niagara at 5-2.

Aaron Grayson led the way for Toronto with 2 goals and 3 assists. Mack O’Brien and Connor Daly also each scored 2 goals for the Shooting Stars. Angus Dineley made 46 saves to earn the win in goal. Pat Saunders and Scott Tinning each scored twice for the Inferno.
