North Ridges Hang On to Take City Championship

Oshawa's North Ridges survived a wild finish in their semi with the East End to take the City Championship over Lakeview in the final.

A late third period goal by AJ wasn't enough to overcome North Oshawa's lead as the Ridges downed the East End 5-4 in the opening semi-final game Saturday at Delpark.  Jaxon opened the scoring for Ridges in the first, and traded goals with the East Enders Matthew before AJ and Locklyn pushed the East ahead.  North Ridges Lochlin tied it up before the buzzer went to end the 2nd period.  Tyler scored early in the 3rd, but was quickly answered by AJ before Jax potted his 3rd at the 11:00 mark.  Neither team scored the rest of the way, back and forth, but the score stood 5-4 North.  Scorers: 

North: Jax 3G, Tyler 1G 2A, Lochlin 1G, Lucas 2A, Lincoln 2A, William 1A, Jeremy 1A

East: Matthew 2G 1A, Locklyn 1G 1A, AJ 1G, Nolan 2A, Wyatt 2A, Briar 1A, William 1A

In the second semi-final, Daniel scored 3 straight and helped Greyson chip in the final goal as Lakeview downed the West Side 4-0.  Despite the numerous chances, West Side could not find the back of the net and had to settle for a shot at the B Final as Lakeview went on to meet North Oshawa in the A Final. Scorers:

Lakeview: Daniel 3G 1A, Greyson 1G 1A, Nathan 1A, Abel 1A, Carter 1A, Isaac 1A, Connor 1A 

In the B Final game, the East Enders spotted the West Side a 2-0 first period lead on a pair from Bryce.  East then scored three in the 2nd, a pair from Nolan and one from Wyatt.  This was not enough as Blake potted a pair of 3rd period goals to push the West End to a tight 4-3 win for the B Championship.  Congratulations West Side!  Scorers:

West Side: Bryce 2G, Blake 2G, Lincoln 2A, Charlotte 2A, Zoey 1A, Oliver 1A, Phoenix 1A

A big second period surge blew open a tight game as the North Ridges defeated Lakeview in the final.  Jeremy opened the scoring early in the second following by a quick goal by Wyatt.  Jeremey made it 3-0 and Tyler closed out the 2nd making it 4-0 Ridges.  Lochlin potted a goal early in the third, but Lakeview wasn't done as  Greyson broke the goose egg.  Lincoln closed out the scoring for the Ridges to make the final score 6-1.  Congratulations North Ridges on being the Super Tyke box lacrosse champions of Oshawa!  Scorers:
