Posted: May 23, 2018 by dannylaf in Main

This past week, the Warriors were able to get revenge against the Peterborough Lakers at Evinrude. Whitby was able to pull away late in the game, getting 6 goals in the 3rd period. Again, Matt Andersson and Parker Pipher had huge roles, getting 4 goals and 3 goals respectively. Quinn Hyland had a big game with 5 points (2G, 3A). Adam Allman played a big role in the win, and Ben MacDonnell did a fantastic job on Peterborough’s point leader. The boxscore can be found here.

The Warriors then hosted the North Shore Kodiaks for the first time. The game started close, with Whitby leading 4-1 at the end of the first. However, the Warriors would then outscore the Kodiaks 18-2 for a final score of 22-3. The defence played well across the board, shutting the door on the back end, and posting 4 goals in the win. 5 players collected hat tricks: Steve Cote, Adam Smellie, Matt Cornish, Andersson, and Hyland. Kyle Staal and David Cormack finished the day with 2 goals and 5 assists each. The full boxscore can be found here.

The Warriors are back in action at home this Friday the 25th at 8pm against the Huntsville Hawks, and then travel to Cornwall for a battle with the Celtics on Saturday the 26th at 2pm.

Warrios split opening week games

Posted: May 7, 2018 by dannylaf in Main

The Whitby Warriors started off the 2018 season against their rivals, the Peterborough Lakers and the Clarington Shamrox.

In the opening game, the experienced Peterborough Lakers proved too much for the young warriors, who fell 10-8. Parker Pipher, in his debut junior game, was able to grab a hatrick on his way to a 5 point night. Matty Andersson, starting his 4th year of junior, was able to grab 3 points (1g, 2a) to help provide some valuable experience on the front end. Chris McDonald and Adam Heinrichs were able to play some solid defence and lead the back door, while also grabbing 2 assists each during the game. The full boxscore can be found here.

In the following game, the warriors were able to dominate against their Durham rival Clarington Shamrox, taking the game by a final score of 14-2. Again, Pipher was a monster on the score sheet, coming away with 6 points (2g, 4a). Connor Platt also had a big night with 7 points (4g, 3a), and Devin Gilligan also provided 6 points (2g, 4a). Tristan Dempers was also able to grab his first goal of his junior career, along with some strong play in the defensive end. The full boxscore can be found here.

Both goalies, Adam Allman and Zack Hubbard, were strong in their 2018 season debuts.

The warriors are off for a week, and return on Wednesday, May 16th for a rematch against the Peterborough Lakers, at Evinrude Arena, starting at 8pm.

Come cheer on the Warriors in what will be an exciting playoff series.

Warriors start 2-1

Posted: May 11, 2017 by dannylaf in Main

The Whitby Warriors have started the season 2-1, with victories over Cornwall and Gloucester, and a loss to Peterborough. There are some real bright spots that have stepped up in these three games, specifically the two players the Warriors have picked on from trades with the Clarington Shamrox: Zack Hubbard and Kyle Staal. Hubbard has been lights out in net, and has led the defense while he is between the pipes. Staal is currently leading the team in points with 4 goals and 6 assists, and has been a real leader on and off the floor.

Another nice addition to the team has been Devin Gilligan. After being a regular call-up for the last two years, he has fit well into the offence in his rookie year and continues to help the ball find the back of the net with 5 assists in the first 3 games.

On the defensive side of the ball, the addition of DJ Wood and Charles Hyland have been stellar. Wood played two seasons with the Warriors before stepping away from lacrosse for a couple of years. Returning for his final year, he has not missed a step. Hyland, also in his last year, has been a regular call-up from the Oshawa Intermediate team, and is finally able to become a consistent presence for the Warriors on the back door.

The Warriors are up next Friday, May 12th at McKinney against Brantford, their first crossover game of the season.

2016 Awards

Posted: December 7, 2016 by dannylaf in Main

The Whitby Warriors are pleased to announce that the team has won 2 of the annual awards given out at the end of the season. These awards are picked by the opposing coaches around the league.

Wyatt Craik received the Rookie of the year award for the East division. He led the team in total points during the season with 54 (26G, 28A), as well as the playoffs with 19 (11G, 8A). He also did an outstanding job as a transition player, both pushing the ball up the floor and stopping any fast breaks by the other team. Wyatt was an instant leader, on and off the floor, and was a focal point for the Warriors all season.

The Warriors were also pleased to be awarded with the East Coaching Staff of the year award. The entire coaching staff is pleased with how the season went as it was a big improvement on the year before, and can’t wait to grow as a team next season. Jason Wiswell, Danny LaFontaine, Paul Gilligan and Paul Allman thank all the players for their hardwork and fans for their support.
