The five-team Ontario Senior C loop began its first season back in June, holding weekend events where teams would play three or four games each. Six Nations (13-0-1) claimed the top spot after a unbeaten regular season. Huntsville Hawks (6-7-1) handed the Tomahawks their lone blemish on July 7 with a 9-9 tie.
Lakefield Rage and Peel Region Tigers each finished their campaign with a 5-9-0 mark with Lakefield holding the tiebreaker with a better head-to-head goals for/goals against.
Six Nations took care of the Tigers in their semifinal winning 10-5.
The late season surging Rage won their fourth straight game by defeating Huntsville 9-4 to advance into the championship game. It was a remarkable turnaround to their season after winning their season opener Lakefield would post nine losses before their turnaround.
In the Legends Cup Final Six Nations wouldn’t be denied as the Tomahawks cruised to a 10-0 victory to claim the championship.
Senior Series Lacrosse also handed out end-of-year awards on championship Sunday.
