Elora Mohawks drop Welland for eighth consecutive win

The Elora Mohawks connected for all seven goals scored in the second period as they dumped the Welland Generals 17-4 in Ontario Junior B Lacrosse League play Sunday at the Welland Arena.

The win was the eighth consecutive victory for the Mohawks. They led 8-3 at the end of the first period and 15-3 after the second. Welland had 16 players suited up for the game including their two goaltenders who both saw action in the match.

Keegan Detweiler collected two goals and six assists while Brinley Wilson had two goals and five assists and JJ Lavigne, Cole Hunsberger and Nate Renaud each had a goal and an assist. Evan McDougall had three assists while Brock Redwood and Connor Willmets had two each and Landon Krysko had one.

Joey Young had two goals for Welland while Hunter Hidalgo and Liam Legault had one goal apiece.

The Mohawks outshot the Generals 74-22 while Welland had a shorthanded goal in the game.

Carter Billings and Sam Forbes each played about half the game in net for Elora. However, they didn’t split the time in the usual way as Billings played about half the first period and all of the third while Forbes played the other portion of the first period and all of the second.

Billings had eight saves for the Mohawks and Forbes had 10.

Kiaus Lalonde played the first 24½ minutes in net for Welland while John Buck played the other 35½ minutes. Lalonde had 19 saves and Buck had 38.

The result leaves the Mohawks at 15-2-1 (W-L-T) and Welland at 1-16-0.

The Mohawks are tied for first in the Western Conference with the St. Catharines Athletics, although St. Catharines has a game in hand. Both are assured of having home-court advantage in the conference quarter-finals.

Elora is to complete its regular season this week with a pair of road games. The Mohawks are to play the Highlanders (13-4-0) at Cambridge Tuesday at 8 p.m. and the Clippers (6-11-0) at Windsor Sunday at 4 p.m.
