Written by Gary Groob  - All Lacrosse All The Time 

The Six Nations Rivermen (11-1) visited the Clearview Crushers (3-7-1) at the Stayner Arena in Stayner, Ontario on Saturday night in Ontario Series Lacrosse action. 

The Rivermen have been making quick work of their opponents this season, averaging just over over thirteen goals per game.  Clearview has had some dandy games this year and could easily be above .500 on the season.

In the two meetings these teams have had this season, Six Nations have been victorious in both.  The Rivermen won 23-10 in April, and 13-10 at the beginning of June.

The goaltending match-up had Elan Henhawk in net for the Rivermen facing Jackson Hainer in net for the Crushers. 

Although the Crushers were able to keep it close in the first period down by only two, the Six Nations Rivermen put it into another gear in periods two and three.
Wes Whitlow (6g,1a), Jordan Goddard (3g,4a), Wake:Riat Bowhunter (3g,2a), Kaden Brennan (3g,5a) and Zach Herrewyers (2g,5a) led the Rivermen's relentless attack en route to a 19-6 victory.
