The 2018 season began for both the Guelph Regals and Elora Mohawks on Friday night when the two teams faced off at Victoria Road Arena in the Royal City.

The Regals, loaded with a team of young players looking to help the team qualify for the playoffs after missing the post-season last year, welcomed an experienced Mohawks team that, on-paper, is built to contend for the Ontario Junior “B” Lacrosse League title this season.

Despite the loss, the Regals were happy with the effort from their team.

It was the first time the team had played a full game with each other after a previously scheduled exhibition game versus Halton Hills was canceled due to an ice storm last Sunday.

After falling behind 5-1 in the 1st period, Guelph fought back and trailed 7-5 after 40 minutes. The game was 8-6 in the 3rd period before Elora potted three unanswered goals in the last 10 minutes of the game to collect the two points with an 11-6 victory.
