Billings face Beaconsfield in lax final today

And then there were two.

The six-time GMAA field lacrosse champion Howard S. Billings Blazers have a date this afternoon with Beaconsfield for the 2018 banner.

The Kahnawake Survival School Muskies field lacrosse team weathered a decent attack from a plucky Westwood High School team last Tuesday at home to win 11-9 and advance in the GMAA playoffs, but fell to Beaconsfield Monday 12-7.

Survival had a very short bench against Westwood with just three subs, and the winless team pushed the young team looking capable of pulling off the upset throughout.

“I had confidence in them to win the game, but we were missing a few key players,” said Surviva coach Eddy Dickson. 

The game was tied 9-9 in the fourth, and Dickson called a timeout to settle his young team down. 

“Just to get these guys on the right track,” said Dickson.

Two goals ensued and Survival’s defence held.

No. 2 Billings and no. 3 Kuper faced off in the other semi-final last Thursday, and dominated after an initial push from the Kodiaks to win 14-4.

 

For Survival, the season showed the school has some fine young talent that will only get better.

Starting from diminutive goalie Tehorahkwaneken Albany, who has been between the pipes for the past two KSS games – and done well, KSS has a large chunk of the team coming back next season.

Dear Readers:

As an essential service that is still open during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Eastern Door is fighting hard to keep news like this flowing, in our print product, though an online subscription at www.eastermdoor.com and here, for free, on our website and Facebook.

But when a large portion of our regular revenue has disappeared due to so many other businesses being closed, our circulation being affected by the same issue, and all of our specials canceled until the end of the year, we are looking for alternative ways to keep operations going, staff paid, and the paper out every Friday for you to enjoy.

Please consider a financial contribution to help us keep doing what we do best; telling the stories of our people in a contemporary medium – a solid, continuing archive that documents our cherished, shared history. Your kind donation will go to a newspaper that stands as the historical record, in-depth, informative and award-winning news; colourful stories, and a big boost to the local economy by employing 95 percent local workers.

Also, please consider subscribing to our e-edition, which comes out Thursday night, at www.easterndoor.com today, or pick up your copy Friday morning in Kahnawake, Kanesatake or Chateauguay. Akwesasne delivery has been suspended due to the pandemic and border issues.

We exercise real freedom of the press every single day. Without our reporters fighting for the truth our community would be missing a whole lot of facts, separated from gossip and rumors.
