K-Wâ€™s Junior A win over Six Nations
July 14th, 2013
There definitely was some sort of theme to Sunday. Brampton beats Peterborough in the Major Series? Kitchener-Waterloo downs Six Nations in Junior A? Nanaimo beats Maple Ridge out West? We wonâ€™t call â€˜em upsets, but we might call it the night of the underdogs as these results definitely qualify as surprises. The Excelsiors have struggled much of the season and have just 4 wins, but 2 of them have come in the last 4 days and beating Peterborough, a team challenging for the top spot in MSL, certainly is a high point of this season so far. But the Junior A playoffs in Ontario had perhaps the biggest surprise when the Braves of K-W logged an impressive OT win over the Arrows, Ontarioâ€™s regular-season champs.
Six Nations, still without injured Randy Staats, built a 6-2 lead after 1 period before K-W rallied in the second. Dhane Smith scored 3 goals in the second for the Braves, who trailed 9-7 heading into the third. Chris Cloutier and Smith opened the third with goals in the first 1:06 to tie the game before Johnny Powless restored the Six Nations lead at 13:20. But K-Wâ€™s Jake Pleon answered about 2 minutes later for another tie and that would be all the scoring in regulation.
Drake Smith for K-W and Jordan Durston for Six Nations traded goals for the only scoring in the OT period, which was followed by sudden death. And at the 9:32 mark, K-Wâ€™s Eric Guiltinan cashed in on a break, assisted by Dhane Smith, who finished the game with 8 points (4-4). Cloutier had 2-3 and Tom Masterson was 0-5 for the winners.
Powless led the Arrows with 3-2 and Josh Johnson was 3-1 while Durston was 2-1.
The series resumes Tuesday at K-W, where the Braves were surprisingly ineffective during the regular season. They were just 2-7-1 at home, while the Arrows were a league-best 8-2 on the road.

June 27th, 2013
Waterloo â€” The Kitchener-Waterloo Braves, winless in three games, came back to form in a big way Thursday night with a 16-4 win over the Brampton Excelsiors.

Braves felled by Northmen
June 10th, 2013
Waterloo Region Record
The Kitchener-Waterloo Braves fell 12-5 to the Orangeville Northmen Sunday night (June 9th) in junior “A” lacrosse play in Orangeville. The Northmen ran up an 8-0 lead before the Braves got on the board early in the second period. Dhane Smith recorded a hat trick, but even with a pair of goals in the final 30 seconds of regulation, the Braves’ scoring came too little, too late. The Braves sit at 5-5-1 this season. They host the Whitby Warriors Thursday night (June 13th) at Kinsmen Arena.
