Congratulations to Brampton’s own Kyle Rubisch for helping Team Canada win the World Lacrosse Championship in Denver this past Saturday. Kyle was also named to the All-World Team. Congrats Kyle on the Championship – you made Brampton proud!
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.
GOOD LUCK KYLE
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.
