OWEN SOUND – The Elora Mohawks rebounded from a two-goal deficit to edge the Owen Sound North Stars 8-6 in Ontario Junior B Lacrosse League play Thursday night at the Bayshore Community Centre.

The teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the first period before Owen Sound scored twice to open the second-period scoring.

Elora responded to that with three consecutive goals before the North Stars completed the scoring in the game with 45 seconds to play.

Shots on net were not reported. The Mohawks went 1-for-4 on their power play while the North Stars went 2-for-5.

Whittom picked up the win in net for Elora while Brady Lisk was in net for the North Stars.

The Mohawks lead the Western Conference at 15-1-0 and are assured of home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs as they’ve secured a top-four finish. They’re followed by the Hamilton Bengals (13-4-0), St. Catharines Athletics (12-4-0), Windsor Clippers (11-4-0), Guelph Regals (10-7-0), Six Nations Rebels (9-5-1), Owen Sound (5-9-1), Wallaceburg Red Devils (5-10-0), Point Edward Pacers (4-12-0), Welland Generals (1-14-0) and London Blue Devils (0-15-0).

The win was the fifth in a row for the Mohawks since they suffered their lone loss of the season, a 10-8 setback at home to Windsor May 22.

It was also the first of four consecutive road games for the Mohawks who’ll get a chance to avenge that loss with a game at Windsor’s Forest Glade arena Sunday at 7 p.m.

The Mohawks are also to play at Hamilton next Thursday and St. Catharines June 18 before they’re to complete their regular season with a game against Wallaceburg June 19 at 7 p.m. at the Elora and District Community Centre.
