BLC evens up series with win over Lakers at home
Keeping the momentum from the end of Game 1 and a balanced scoring attack helped Brooklin Lacrosse Club tie up their best-of-seven Major Series Lacrosse semifinal with a 12-10 win over the Peterborough Lakers Wednesday in Whitby.
The MSL semifinal is now knotted at 1-1.
Kyle Waters got BLC started with the first of his three on the night, while Brady Kearnan, Ryan Lanchbury, Curtis Knight and Dyson Williams also added singles in the first frame.
Thomas Hoggarth had the lone response.
In the second period, Paul Dawson, Joe Restarts and Mark Matthews tried to get the Lakers within reach. But a pair of goals from Waters and singles from Connor Kearnan, Knight, Brady Kearnan and Dyson Williams extended the BLC lead heading into the home stretch.
The lead was too much, despite a great third-period effort from the Lakers, who got goals from Restarts, Holden Cattoni, and Hoggarth, with a pair from Chad Tutton.
Jake Stevens was the lone BLC response to put the game out of reach.
NOTES: Connor Kearnan had a huge game for BLC. He had five assists to go along with his one goal. Nick Damude got the win for BLC making 38 stops. Doug Buchan and Mike Poulin shared the goaltending duties for the Lakers, who were outshot 55-48. Game 3 of the series is Thursday in Peterborough at 8pm. The full-game replay will be available on the MSL YouTube page and MSL TV.
