The Peterborough Century 21 Lakers handed the Brampton Excelsiors a 1302 defeat on Sunday night at the Brampton Memorial Arena.

The game was delayed an hour and 20 minutes after it was discovered there were no referees assigned to work the game. The delay didn’t affect the Lakers, who played a solid first period, leading 3-2 after the opening frame.

But they really turned things up in the latter 40 minutes of the game, outscoring the Excelsiors 10-0 in the final two periods.


The Lakers, without Holden Cattoni and Thomas Hoggarth to prior commitments, were led by Josh Currier’s three goals and five assists, and three goals and four assists from Taite Cattoni. Drew Hutchison was phenomenal in goal, and the Lakers got a big boost in the return of Jake Withers, who won 14/18 faceoffs.

“It was very, very fun to get back out there. It was good to be back with the guys, playing with some of my best friends,” Withers said.

Brothers Lucas and Tyler Ferreira each scored a goal for Brampton.

The Lakers finish off a busy stretch of lacrosse when they return home this Thursday, June 22nd to host the Six Nations Chiefs. Game time is 8 p.m. at the Memorial Centre and tickets are on sale at the PMC box office.
