Next Home Game – Thursday July 30th 8:00pm vs. Oakville Rock


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

Bram was an Excelsior through and through.  He played his Junior and Major career in Brampton from 1964-1989 taking two years off to play in the NLL; 1974 for the Toronto Tomahawks and 1975 for the Boston Bolts.  Bram won a President’s Cup in 1972 and a Mann Cup in 1980 as an Excelsior.  He was a life-long Excelsior playmaker with 875 goals and 878 assists for a career total of 1073 points in 584 games.

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.

Tonight’s game will be webcast live through JVI Sports.  http://jvisportsnetwork.com/

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.

Saturday July 5th vs. Brooklin Redmen (9-7 Loss)

Thursday July 3rd 8pm vs. Six Nations Chiefs (7-4 Loss)

The Brampton Excelsiors hosted the Six Nations Chiefs on Thursday night at Powerade.  The young Excelsior had their work cut out for them facing a larger and more experienced Chiefs squad, who were without Colin Doyle.  Six Nations got out to an early lead on two quick goals in the first 4 minutes.  Brampton was able to tighten things up and Matt Holman scored mid-period to make it 2-1.  A late goal by former Excelsior Jeff Shattler gave the Chiefs a 3-1 edge at the end of the first.

The game stayed close.  Brady Heseltine scored midway into the 2nd to cut the lead to 3-2, however that would be as close as it got, as the Chiefs scored 2 more to make it 5-2 at the end of the second.

Chris Corbeil and Dustin Carvalho each scored in the 3rd to match the pair of Chief’s goals, however it wasn’t enough.  Chiefs won 7-4.  The young Excels are looking much better in recent games, and have a chance to grab the final playoff spot if they can put together some wins against Kitchener and Oakville in upcoming games.


Kyle Rubisch leaves shortly to go to the World Championships in Denver, Colorado.   We all wish Kyle the best of luck!

Wednesday July 2nd at Brooklin Redmen (11-4 Loss)

Brampton Excelsiors played Wednesday night in Brooklin losing 11-4.  The Excels will need to put some sort of winning streak together to try to finish ahead of Oakville and Kitchener in the standings.  Two difficult games in a row against the first place Redmen and second place Chiefs on Wednesday and Thursday this week.  It would be a great accomplishment if the team can pick up a couple of points in tonight’s game.

Thursday June 26th vs. Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks (10-8 Win)
Saturday June 14th at Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks (11-7 Loss)
Thursday June 12th vs. Six Nations Chiefs (9-6 Loss)
Saturday June 7th at Six Nations Chiefs (10-7 Loss)
