AKWESASNE, Ontario – The Six Nations Rebels beat out the Akwesasne Indians 12-9 in the last game of the Ontario Provincial Lacrosse Association Finals and took home the J.A. MacDonald Trophy.

Roughly 2,000 excited fans packed the A`nowara`ko:wa Arena to see the final game.

The Ontario Lacrosse Festival took place in Akwesasne from Aug. 2 to 12, with the final game of the men’s Junior B Championship taking place on Wednesday, Aug. 7.

During the regular season the Akwesasne Indians were undefeated and held the final series with Rebels  to 2-2 going into the last game.

The Indians could not get their offense moving at a higher gear thanks to the efforts of Briely Miller, the Six Nations goalie who was white hot throughout the game.

After winning the Ontario Provincial Lacrosse Association finals, the Six Nations are off to compete in the Founders Cup in Winnipeg, on Aug. 12.
