One day removed from a bad beating from the Brooklin Lacrosse Club, the Cobourg Kodiaks (1-6) traveled to the Memorial Centre in Peterborough to face the Lakers (5-2) in Thursday night Major Series Lacrosse action.

Thr goalie match-up had Doug Buchan in net for the Lakers against Steven Orleman for Cobourg.

Peterborough came out with something to prove after their lackluster game against Six Nations last Thursday night.  Three goals from Cole Hanrahan, and two from Carter Page led the Lakers to a 9-2 victory over a noticeably tired Kodiaks team.

To The Game:

The first period was absolutely dominated by Peterborough.  Cole Hanrahan opened the scoring off an Austin Hasen pass at 7:48, followed by Taite Cattoni converting a Chad Tutton feed at 10:37.  Cole Hanrahan scored his second of the night at 11:24, followed by Carter Page finishing off a Hanrahan pass at 16:22.  Austin Hasen scored unassisted to end the period’s storing.

After one period, Peterborough 5 Cobourg 0.

Second Period:

Cobourg finally got on the board when Cam Milligan converted a Kealen Pilon pass on the power play at 0:55 seconds.

The rest of the period was again all Peterborough:

Holden Cattoni converted a Taite Cattoni pass at 1:45, followed by Cory Vitarelli finishing off an Austin Hasen pass at 9:32.  Cole Hanrahan scored his third of the game converting a Taite Cattoni pass at 12:31, followed by Carter Page’s second goal of the night with just 0:10 seconds left in the period.

After two periods, Peterborough 9 Cobourg 1.

Third Period:

The Lakers could’ve run the score up more, but chose to spend the period killing clock for the victory.

Cobourg scored on the power play when Alex Simmons scores off a Kealen Pilon pass at 9:29.

Final score, Peterborough 9 Cobourg 2.

  • Shots on goal were in favor of Peterborough 52-42.
