The Caughnawaga Indians won a pair of games Tuesday to move to 3-0 and sit atop the standings at the Presidents Cup national Senior B championship tournament being held in Kahnawake, Quebec. Seth Oakes led the Iroquois Lacrosse Association champions to a 16-12 win over the Capital Region Axemen in the first game of the day with 5 goals and 2 assists. Mitch Nanticoke and Jeremy Thompson each contributed 3 goals while Jerome Thompson had a goal and 5 assists. Jordan Joncas had 4 goals and an assist, who reached the tournament as the runners up to the host Kahnawake Mohawks in the QSLL. The Indians followed up their morning win by downing the Mohawks 16-10 in the last game of the day, led by Miles Thompson’s 6 goals and an assist. Jerome Thompson (2g, 6a), Lyle Thompson (2g, 5a) and Nanticoke (2g, 4a) each chipped in with big point totals for the Indians. Caleb Wiles was the Mohawks’ top gunner with 4 goals and an assist while Callum Crawford chipped in a goal and 4 assists in the losing effort.
