A Strong Third Period Send Lakers To Victory

The Cobourg Kodiaks (1-4) visited the Peterborough Lakers (4-2) in Thursday night Major Series Lacrosse action at the Memorial Centre in Peterborough, Ontario.

Cobourg has been a much improved team this year, giving the MSL all they can handle.  Peterborough was looking to get focused again after all the drama surrounding the trade of Shawn Evans to the Akwesasne Bucks.

The goaltending match-up had Jackson Brown in net for Cobourg against Landon Kells in net for the Lakers.

While through forty minutes this game was completely even, the Peterborough Lakers found another gear in the third.  Led by Thomas Hoggarth (3g,1a) and Austin Hasen (2g,3a), the Lakers pulled away to a 10-6 lead.  The Kodiaks didn’t quit scoring twice late, but couldn’t complete the comeback in this affair.   Peterborough came away with the 10-8 win.

The Lakers finally got on the board when Josh Currier finished off an Alex Pace feed on the power-play at 14:27, then also converting a Taite Cattoni pass at 18:06.  Holden Cattoni tied the game blasting an Austin Hasen feed at 19:19.
