Af­ter the ju­nior ‘C’ lacrosse sea­son came to an end for the Corn­wall Celtics, team captain Tyler Akins joined the Ak­we­sasne In­di­ans of the OJBLL for their play­off run.

In four games with the ju­nior ‘B’ club, the 20year-old from South Glen­garry notched seven points.

The Ak­we­sasne In­di­ans were bounced on July 30,

when the squad fell to the Green Gaels (Bow­manville) three games to two in the OJBLL east con­fer­ence semi­fi­nals.

The Gaels are cur­rently play­ing the Orangevill­e North­men in the league cham­pi­onship se­ries.

As for Akins, who led the Celtics and the OJCLL in scor­ing with 106 points, 21 more than the ath­lete in sec­ond place, this year may have been his last in the sport.

He tells that he plans to con­cen­trate on his stud­ies at St. Lawrence Col­lege, though he ex­pects he may also play a lit­tle hockey and soc­cer for the school.
