Tim Bergin draws assist in losing effort at President’s Cup tournament

August 31, 2014

Kahnawake Mohawks will play for the bronze medal Sunday at the President’s Cup national senior B lacrosse championship at Nanaimo, B.C.

The Mohawks were defeated 8-4 by the Six Nations Rivermen Saturday in the semifinals of the seven-team tournament. Kingston’s Tim Bergin had an assist for the Mohawks, who finished the preliminary round atop the standings with a 5-1 record.

Their only defeat in the round robin was a 9-8 loss to the Nations, who finished 4-2 and claimed the final berth in the playoff round.

Kahnawake, representing the Quebec senior league, led 2-1 when Ontario champion Six Nations scored twice in the final 48 seconds of the first period. Then followed four unanswered goals in the second period as the Rivermen took a 7-2 lead into the final 20 minutes.

Bergin, a member of the Ottawa Axemen who was added to the Kahnawake lineup for the championship, drew his assist on a power-play goal in the opening minute of the third period but the Mohawks could get no closer.

In its final preliminary game, Bergin scored the eventual game-winning goal and collected two assists as Kahnawake defeated the St. Albert Miners 9-6. St. Albert, of the Rocky Mountain league, also finished 4-2 in the round robin. The Miners are playing the Onondaga Redhawks of the Iroquois Lacrosse Association in Saturday night’s other semifinal.
