Braves Extend TNSLL Finals

After dropping the opening two games of their best-of five series St. Regis Braves knew it was win or go home Saturday night. They did just that and extended the series to next weekend.

Finishing atop the Three Nations Senior Lacrosse League (while playing a crossover schedule with the QSLL), St. Regis came into the finals looking to return to the President’s Cup for the first time since 2012, when the Braves completed back-to-back championships. After a three-year hiatus the club returned to the floor this summer with Chuckie Brown guiding the Braves to a 9-5 record.Braves

Tyendinaga (5-9) swept their opening playoff series against Caughnawaga Indians in three-straight games and were looking for a repeat of that feat in Game 3. St. Regis made its intention clear early on taking an 8-4 advantage at first intermission.

The Thunderbirds closed the gap in the second period, trailing 10-7 headed into the final frame. Each teams score four times in the third as the Braves held on to win 14-11.

Game 4 will be played on Friday at the Deseronto Community Centre – home of the Thunderbirds. A large crowd is expected for one of the most important Senior lacrosse games the area has seen in recent years.

Thunderbirds GM Josh Hill commented on hosting a potential series finale.

“We’re expecting a sell out crowd and are looking forward to having the opportunity to win a title on our home floor.”
