Excelsiors Season Ends

Excelsiors travelled to Six Nations for Game #5 tonight in a must win situation.  The Excelsiors were missing some very key players including goalie Angus Dineley.

Six Nations started off with a goal from Randy Staats before Mike Mawdsley tied the game at 1.  Six Nations score the next 4 goals to end the period up 5-1.

The Chiefs came out on fire on the second period with goals by Johnny Powless, Kasey Beirnes and Dhane Smith.  Sandy Chapman got 1 back for the Excelsiors before Stephen Keogh scored to end the period.  9-2 Nations.

With 20 minutes remaining in the game the Excelsiors needed to come out scoring often to make it a game.  Jayson Crawford scored his first of the playoffs, followed by Mike Burke (2) and Brandon Benn for the Excelsiors.  That was as close as Brampton would get.  12-6 final.

Congrats to Six Nations Chiefs!  Good luck in the MSL Final!

Brampton showed moments of good play but were schooled by an experienced, well prepared Six Nations team.  Hopefully Brampton took notes and learned from the play of their opponent – especially in a potential final game where it is important to play your best players…..Brampton should take a page out of Six Nations playbook on this one!

Thanks to all our fans for the support this season!  We look forward to the 2016 season!



Excelsiors Down In Series

After winning game #3 in Six Nations, Brampton was looking for a repeat in game #4.  Six Nations had other ideas.

Ryan Benesch got things started at 4:37 of the first period, followed quickly by Nations goals from Billy Dee Smith and Dhane Smith.  Chris Corbeil got the Excelsiors on the board with a shorthanded goal at 12:43.  Nations scored 2 more to end the period 5-1.

Second period Joe Resetarits & Connor Daly scored Brampton’s only 2 goals.  Six Nations scored 5 to take a 10-3 lead.

The third period was all Six nations as they scored 4 unanswered goals to win game #4 14-3.

Brampton now finds itself in a huge hole down 3 games to 1.  Game #5 goes Thursday night in Six Nations.



Excelsiors Named to Team Canada

Congratulations to Excelsiors Captain Chris Corbeil and former Excelsiors Dan Dawson for being named Assistant Captain and Captain (respectively) for the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships this coming September.  We know they will do Canada proud and represent Brampton well!



Excelsiors Squeak Past Chiefs

Game #3 tonight in Six Nations was a pivotal game for the Excelsiors.   Going to a 3-0 hole is something very few teams come back from.

Brandon Benn got the Excelsiors the early lead at 1:47.  Joe Resetarits followed with a goal of his own before Brandon Goodwin scored for Nations.  2-1 Brampton end of 1.

Leading scorer Mike Burke scored to open the second period.  Ryan Benesch scored his first of the game before Burke would find the back of the net again and Ethan O’Connor would get his first of the series.  Jeff Shattler scored three times to keep the game close before Tyler Ferreira would make it a 2 goal game once again.  6-5 end of 2.

The third period saw each team score only 1 goal a piece. Brampton takes game #3 7-6.

It was a fast game with not much intensity or excitement.  Brampton was lucky to squeeze out the win.

Game #4 is this coming Tuesday back at Memorial Arena in Brampton.


Excelsiors Lose Heartbreaker

Brampton was looking for a better outcome in game #2 in this best of 7 series.  For that they would need to put in a full 60 minute effort against a strong Six Nations team.

Brampton stuck to their game plan and came out looking to win.  Mike Mawdsley opened the scoring at 4:35 followed by former Junior’s Matt Bennett and Connor Sellars.  Excelsiors with a 3-0 lead end of the first period.

Six Nations scored first in the second period, Dhane Smith & Johnny Powless made it a 3-2 game.  Joe Resetarits scored his first of the game to regain the 2 goal lead.  Connor Sellars scored his second of the game and Tyler Ferreira scored to end the period.  6-4 Brampton end of 2.

Brampton needed a strong final 20 minutes to tie the series up.  Six Nations had other ideas.  Kasey Beirnes scored at 8:29 followed by Dave Brock at 13:19 to tie the game.  Kasey Beirnes scored the game winner at 17:29 of the third period.

Connor Sellars was the best player for your Excelsiors, scoring 2 goals and played a strong defensive game.  Tyler Carlson stood strong in goal.

It was a well played game by both teams however came down to depth.  Six Nations was able to roll 4 strong lines and played their game right to the final buzzer.  Brampton sat back and tried to protect their lead in the third period which led to them being unable to hold on for the win.

Brampton chose to go with junior players instead of their usual players who got them to this point.  Missing tonight were Sandy Chapman, Dan Keane, Simon Desousa, Shane Scott, Brady Heseltine and Rob Koger.  Playing any combination of these players would have made Brampton stronger and more competitive.

Game #3 is Saturday in Six Nations.


Game #1 Goes to the Chiefs

The 2015 MSL playoffs began on Tuesday as Brampton traveled to Six Nations to take on the defending Mann Cup Champions.

The game began as expected with Nations taking an early lead.  Captain Chris Corbeil scored to tie the game at 9:13 of the first.  Nations Randy Staats scored a natural hat trick to end the period giving the Chiefs a 4-1 lead.

Joe Resetarits scored at the 7:17 mark of the second to bring the Excelsiors within 2.  Six Nations had other ideas – Randy Staats scored his 4th of the game before former Excelsiors Jeff Shattler scored his own hat trick to give the Chiefs a 8-2 lead.  Resetarits scored his second of the period to end it 8-3.

Brampton attempted a come back in the third period with Mike Burke, Joe Resetarits and Mike Melnychenko scoring 1 each.  It wasn’t enough though….final score 9-6 Six Nations.

Game #2 goes Thursday August 6th in Brampton

Excelsiors End Season on Losing Streak

This is not the way Brampton wanted to go into the playoffs.   Your final regular season games should be tune-ups to get ready to make a run in the post season.  For Brampton it was a disinterested, unorganized group that showed up for the final 2 games of the regular season.

Brampton needed a win in the final regular season game against the Oakville Rock to secure third in the standings.

Brampton got off to a good start with Mike Burke scoring early.  Oakville scored the next 2 before Brady Heseltine tied the game.  Oakville got one back before the end of the period.  3-2 Oakville.

The second period it was Oakville who struck first, and second.  Brandon Benn got one back for the Excelsiors before Jeremy Noble scored again.  Zac Reid & Mike Burke got the Excelsiors back on the board.  7-5 Oakville end of 2.

Oakville was the only team that showed up in the third period.  They went on a 4 goal run to start the period.   Brampton appeared to be just going through the motions.  Mike Mawdsley & Sandy Chapman scored in the final 2 minutes of the game but it was too little too late.  Final score 11-7 Oakville.

The win gives the Rock their first playoff series since moving to Oakville.  The loss moves the Excelsiors into fourth position where they now face the defending Mann Cup Champions Six Nations Chiefs.

Brampton has a few days off to regroup.   If they play the way they did tonight the series will be short and high scoring for Six Nations.  Time to stop experimenting with the lineup and go with what has worked this season!   The team has stepped up for big games in the past playoffs are no different.



Excelsiors Lose To Redmen

Brampton traveled to Brooklin on Wednesday.  A win would secure third for the playoffs.   For Brooklin a win would keep them in the hunt for a playoff spot.

In an extremely hot arena both teams took awhile to get going.  The first goal of the game was scored by Brampton’s Joe Resetarits at 11:57 of the first.  Brooklin answered back with goals from Kiel Matisz and Shawn Williams.   Mike Burke scored to end the period tied 2-2.

The second period Brooklin call-up Austin Shanks was the only player on both teams to show up.  He scored 2 goals – one of which was a highlight reel 1 handed shot that beat Carlson.  Brooklin took a 4-2 lead into the dressing room.

The third period saw Shawn Williams score to open the period.  Mike Burke scored his second of the night before Reilly O’Connor scored to end the scoring.  Final score 6-3 Brooklin.

Brampton now needs to win their final game against Oakville to remain in third.


Excelsiors Clinch Playoff Spot

Brampton visited Kitchener-Waterloo last night in hopes of a win and a coveted playoff spot.

Things started off well for Brampton as Rob Kroger and Mike Melnychenko scored for a 2 goal lead.  KW quickly tied things up before Brampton went on a 4 goal run to take the lead.  (Goals by Mike Burke, Rob Kroger, Brady Heseltine & Luc Magnam).   6-3 Brampton end of 1.

The second period saw KW come alive and outscored Brampton 3-1.  Brampton’s lone goal came from Tyler Ferreira.  7-6 end of 2.

The third period was a back-and-forth battle. With both teams needing a win they kept it close.  Sandy Chapman and Brandon Benn both scored to keep the game tied.  Mike Burke scored the winner at 19:25 of the game to take the win 10-9.

The win ensures Brampton will be in the post-season – something they haven’t been for a few years now!

We now wait the final few games of the regular season to see who our opponent will be – either Six Nations Chiefs or Peterborough Lakers.

Congratulations to all players and coaches on making the playoffs.  You have made all of Brampton proud and we can’t wait to support you in your playoff run.  GO EXCELSIORS!!


Excelsiors Can’t Beat Lakers

Your Excelsiors travelled to Peterborough on Thursday to try and win another one against the Lakers.  Unlike the game in Brampton this one was all Peterborough.

Peterborough got things started with the first 2 goals before Brampton’s Mike Mawdsley got the Excelsiors on the board.  Mike Burke scored shorthanded and Sandy Chapman rounded out the scoring in the first to keep things close.  4-3 Lakers.

The second period saw Peterborough score first before Burke with his second the night scored to keep the pressure on.  That was all the offence Brampton could muster in the period as the Lakers scored 4 more taking a 9-4 lead into the dressing room.

The third period was a repeat of the second with Peterborough scoring 3 to Brampton’s 1 (Tyler Ferreira with the goal).   Final score 12-5 Lakers.

Things got a bit heated in the third period with Jayson Crawford dropping the glove with Laker Chad Culp.

Brampton has 3 games remaining in the regular season.  A combination of Brampton wins and Oakville/KW/Brooklin losses could mean a playoff berth for your Excelsiors.  Stay tuned!


Excelsiors Win Low Scoring Affair

The Brooklin Redmen made their final visit to Memorial arena last night.  It was a game both teams needed to win to even think of having a chance at playoffs.

Tyler Ferreira opened the scoring at 5:17 of the first.  Mike Burke and Joe Resetarits (2) rounded out the opening frame which saw Brampton with a 4-2 lead.

Both teams scored 2 a piece in the second period.  Brooklin scored 2 in the third which wasn’t enough.  Brampton held on for the 7-6 win.

There was no animosity in this game as there were 0 minutes in penalties.

The win put Brampton alone in 3rd place in the standings with 12 points – 2 points ahead of Oakville.  Only 4 games remain in the regular season for your Excelsiors.



Excelsiors Can’t Beat Chiefs

On Tuesday night in Six Nations Brampton kept the score close for the first 20 minutes at 3-2 before Six Nations stormed out in the second scoring 6 goals to Brampton’s 2.  Despite a 7 goal outburst by Brampton in the third period they still ended up short on a 13-11 loss.

It was the Burke-Resetarits show again as they combined for 5 goals and 10 assists.  Tyler Carlson had a 44 save night.

Your Excelsiors have continued to show great improvement over the last few games and have turned quite a few heads with their ability to play with the top teams in the league.



Excelsiors Win OT Thriller Over Lakers

If you weren’t at Memorial Arena on Sunday you missed what can arguably be called the best game of the year!

Brampton came into Sunday’s game the underdogs…..they came out of the game top dog!

The first period saw Peterborough outscore Brampton 4-1.  Brampton made some adjustments in the break and played a different came in the second period; scoring 6 goals to Peterborough’s 4.

Being behind by only 1 goal going into the third period Brampton had 5 different goal scorers to keep it a 1 goal game.  Mike Burke scored at 19:40 of the period to send the game to OT.

In OT it was Brampton who found that extra edge.  Ethan O’Connor, Mike Burke & Brady Heseltine powered your Excelsiors to a 16-15 win.

The Excelsiors were led by Mike Burke with 4 goals 4 assists and Joe Resetarits with 4 goals and 3 assists.  Tyler Ferreira also added 5 points.

See the video on Excelsiors Zac Reid:



Bram Wilfong Memorial Details

The Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club is inviting friends to join Bram’s family in remembering his left at Memorial Arena 69 Elliott St, on July 26th from 1-4:00pm.



Excelsiors Close But Come Up Short

Six Nations made their final visit to Memorial arena on Thursday.  Although the final score ended up 22-14 in favour of the Chiefs it was no indication of how the game went.

Ethan O’Connor got things started for your Excelsiors at 6:22 of the first tying the game.  Nations scored the next three before Joe Resetarits got Brampton back on track.  First period ended 5-3 Nations.

The second period was back and forth with both teams scoring 7 goals apiece.  Brampton scored 4 in a row causing Six Nations to pull starting goalie Brandon Miller.  Second period ended 12-10 Nations.

The third period was a tale of 2 teams for Brampton.  The period started well for your Excelsiors who leaned on their veterans to keep them close (Kyle Rubisch, Sandy Chapman & Chris Corbeil all scored).  Unfortunately Brampton just couldn’t keep up with the veteran filled Six Nations team for the final 10 minutes of the game.  Nations went on to score 7 goals to take the win.

Angus Dineley was solid in goal for your Excelsiors.  Joe Resetarits & Tyler Ferreira led Brampton with 5 points a piece.



Excelsiors Back in the Win Column

Kitchener-Waterloo were the opponents last Sunday….both teams needed a win to stay in the hunt for playoffs.

Brampton came out firing leading 4-2 at the end of the first.  Kitchener improved in the second period but Brampton kept the edge leading 8-5 end of 2.  Only 1 goal was scored in the 3rd by each team.

Brampton takes this one 9-6 moving them into a tie with Oakville for third place in the standings.

Next home game for your Excelsiors is this Thursday July 9th against the league leading Six Nations Chiefs.



Excelsiors Can’t Solve the Rock

Brampton was looking for revenge after losing a close game to Oakville 10-7.

It was a very low scoring game with both goalies (Tyler Carlson for Brampton and Nick Rose for Oakville) making some key saves.  With the score tied 5-5 end of the second some animosity broke out on the floor but cooler heads prevailed.

Excelsiors battle hard but can’t complete the comeback and fall to the Rock 6-5.


Second Period Shutout Costs Excelsiors

This past Thursday the Brooklin Redmen made their first trip to Memorial Arena for the season.

The two teams traded goals in the first period with Brooklin leading 3-2 at the end of one.  The second period was the end of the Excelsiors game as they gave up 6 goals and scored 0.    This was too deep of a hole for Brampton to dig themselves out of and they dropped their second in a row 14-8.



Brampton Lose to Oakville

This past Monday Brampton traveled to Oakville to take on the Rock.  Both teams made some big off season moves so this would be a big test for both rosters.

Oakville came out flying in the first period with 5 different players scoring goals to take the lead 5-3.  Throughout the rest of the game Brampton was playing catch-up.  Time ran out on the Excelsiors as they lose 10-7 to the Rock.


Game Day – Brampton @ Oakville

Your Excelsiors travel to Oakville to take on the Rock tonight at 8:00pm.  Oakville won it’s first game of the season last night, beating KW 14-8, while your Excelsiors look to win their second in a row.

All MSL webcasts will be FREE this summer.  JVI has started a crowd funding campaign to allow this to happen.   Please follow the link below and support in any way you can.   There are great prizes to be won and as always you get to see great lacrosse.




Excelsiors Back in Win Column

Kitchener-Waterloo made their second visit to Memorial arena this season on Thursday night.  Brampton was looking for a win with the return of NLL Champions Chris Corbeil, Kyle Rubisch and goalie Tyler Carlson.

It was a low scoring affair.  Brampton and KW traded goals in the first period ending 3-3.  The second period Brampton gained some momentum and scored 2 more.  The third period also saw Brampton score 2 to take the game 7-5.

Your Excelsiors were led by Dan Keane (3 goals, 1 assist) and rookie Tyler Ferreira (1 goal, 2 assists).  Tyler Carlson got the win in goal.


Excelsiors Come Close

Brampton made it’s first visit of the season to the ILA in a re-match against the Six Nations Chiefs.  Brampton had a good start to the game thanks to Joe Resitarits 2 goals and they led 2-1 going into the second period.

Brampton continued to stick with Six Nations scoring 4 goals in the second to lead 6-4 after two.

The third period was Brampton’s downfall as they allows 5 goals from the Chiefs and could not muster any offence.

With a much better showing tonight Brampton loses again to Six Nations 9-6.



Excelsiors Lose to Chiefs

It was a tough night at Memorial Arena this past Thursday as the Six Nations Chiefs came to town.   Even with the return of Sandy Chapman and Brandon Benn the Chiefs were too much for the Excelsiors to handle.  Six Nations scored 7 goals in the first and 9 goals in the second period to take a commanding lead in the game.   Final score Six Nations 19 Brampton 5.

Next game for your Excelsiors is a visit to the ILA to play the same Six Nations Chiefs this Tuesday June 16th 8:00pm.

Next home game is Thursday June 18th against the visiting KW Kodiaks.  Game time 8:00pm Memorial Arena.



Excelsiors Players Win Champions Cup

Congratulations to Excelsiors players Chris Corbeil, Kyle Rubisch and Tyler Carlson for winning the NLL Champions Cup with the Edmonton Rush.  This is Edmonton’s first championship in their 10 year history.

2015 Edmonton Rush

The Rush won 11-10 in second game of a best of 3 series against the Toronto Rock.   Excelsiors players Sandy Chapman and Brandon Benn were on the Rock roster.  Toronto fought hard but Edmonton would not be denied – it was their time!

We are proud of all our Excelsiors players from both teams.  You made Brampton proud!



Excelsiors Drop Home Opener to Kodiaks

2015 Ceremonial Faceoff


3 games in 4 nights proved to be too much for your Excelsiors as they lost 10-5 to the visiting Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks.  KW jumped out to a 5-0 lead before Tyler Ferreira got the Excelsiors on the board.

It was a good chance for the home fans to see the new look Excelsiors in action.  All of our graduating Junior A players made an impact during the game (as they have for all games this season).  Both Tye Belanger and Grant Crawley saw some time in goal.

Your Excelsiors have some much needed time off now as their next game is Thursday June 11th 8:00pm at home against the visiting Six Nations Chiefs.  Depending on how the NLL Champions Cup plays out Sandy Chapman, Chris Corbeil, Kyle Rubisch and Brandon Benn may be available for that game.

Come on out and support your Excelsiors!

2015 Home Opener



Excelsiors Begin 2015 Season On A Winning Streak 

The 2015 season began this past Monday June 1st for your Excelsiors as they travelled to Oakville to take on the Rock.  The Excelsiors took to the floor with a young team, many playing in their first MSL game.   Nothing was going to stop them as they lead throughout the entire game ending with a 9-5 win.

Just 2 days later the Excelsiors visited the Brooklin Redmen for their second game of the season.  The game was back and forth with the Excelsiors never giving up and coming from behind to win their second game of the season 11-8.

Tye Belanger was solid in net for both games.
