Akins scores with Indians
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.
