CALGARY, AB — The week started off strong for Calgary Roughnecks players in the Major Series Lacrosse league.
On Monday, June 6, defenceman Dan MacRae opened the scoring for the Oakville Rock. He followed that with his second goal of the game exactly three minutes later.
While MacRae didn’t find the scoresheet again in the contest, another Roughneck did stuff the sheet with stats.
Righty Wesley Berg was fairly quiet in the first and second periods, collecting only a single point in each frame, but he was big in the fourth quarter. On the power play, Berg scored his second goal of the game and then on the Rock’s three subsequent goals, Berg tallied assists.
The Rock would win that game 15-8 over the Six Nations Chiefs. However, they would not have as much success against Six Nations the next night.
MacRae and Berg both recorded an assist in the contest, but neither would find the back of the net as the Rock were dropped 9-4.
Making his season debut for the Brooklin Redmen, goaltender Mike Poulin was exceptional between the pipes. The veteran made 36 saves on 42 shots en route to winning the game 8-6 over the Cobourg Kodiaks.
Lefty Reilly O’Connor was not in the line-up for the Redmen.
In Brampton, hard-nosed defender Tyson Bell helped the Brampton Redmen split their two games. Against the Peterborough Lakers, Bell did not score and was sent to the box for a high-sticking major late in the loss.
Bell rebounded well from the defeat and managed to net a goal and an assist against the Kodiaks to help the Excelsiors win 10-6. In three games in the MSL, Bell now has four points, but he’s also racked up 13 penalty minutes.
Curtis Dickson was once again not present for the Peterborough Lakers.
