Niagara Win Third Straight, Demons Open Season With Victory

The 2014 Canadian Lacrosse League season is only two weeks old, but the Niagara Lock Monsters look to be early contenders again for the Creators’ Cup. Taking a pair of home wins on opening weekend, Niagara stretched their win-streak to three with a 16-10 victory at Barrie on Sunday.

A wild first quarter saw Niagara score three goals to open the game. A pair of goals by the Barrie Blizzard cut into the lead before another three goal run by the Lock Monsters made it 6-2.

The Blizzard then went on a goal scoring run of their own, netting five-straight to take a 7-6 lead in front of their home crowd. At halftime the Lock Monsters and Blizzard were back on level terms, tied 7-7.

Like last weekend, the second half belonged to Niagara. The Lock Monsters outscored Barrie 9-3 in the half to win comfortably.

Corey Fowler scored four goals and added four assists to lead the Lock Monsters high scoring offense. Niagara have scored 46 goals in their three CLax games so far.

Idle the first week of CLax play, the Ohsweken Demons played host to SouthWest Cyclops on Saturday night at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena. In a 40-goal shootout, the Demons came out on top winning 21-19.

Wayne VanEvery (7 goals), Tom Montour (5 goals), Chris Attwood and Blue Hill (4 goals each) provided nearly all the scoring for the Demons, who will rematch the Cyclops on Friday.
