Teeters help topple the Stealth
by Randy Pascal
The GSLA Rush received two goals apiece from Kevin Watson and Ethan Marois, and solo efforts from Aidan Teeter, Ethan
Teeter and Zak Thompson, stopping the Stealth 7-1 in Bantam Houseleague action earlier this week at the Carmichael Arena.
The contest itself seemed far closer than the final score might have indicated, as Rush goaltender Cloe Douillette did a nice job to turn away
the likes of Jack Heaphy, Giordano Biondi, Max McCue and Keegan Esquimaux, all of whom enjoyed great chances from point blank range.
Now thirteen years of age, the Teeter twins have been mainstays of the local lacrosse loop, picking up the sport some six years ago. The benefits,
according to Ethan, are numerous.
"There's a lot of running, so it gives us very god cardio for football, and it's very good hand-eye co-ordination. You're constantly passing or shooting
or faking, and you learn how to take a hit."
Like most houseleague teams in the GSLA (Greater Sudbury Lacrosse Association), both the Rush and Stealth are dotted with Sudbury Rockhound
rep players, providing some guidance for the youngsters who prefer a more recreational game.
For his part, Teeter believed that both segments did their part in contributing to the win. "We passed a lot, and set a lot of screens, so it makes the
floor bigger," he said. "We hustled back hard, to make sure Cloe did not get a lot of shots on her."
Both Aidan and Ethan Teeter do double duty with the Rockhound bantams, with the latter looking to add a new wrinkle to his game this summer. "I want to
learn to shoot from my right-hand side," noted Ethan Teeter.
"I'm dominant in my right hand, but you have to use your left hand more, which is a big difference. It's better to be able to do both, especially when
you're rolling off a pick, and want to get a quick release."
Houseleague lacrosse action continues, Monday to Thursday, right through until the end of June. The Rockhounds teams will be kicking off tournament play
from May 27th to the 29th, as the Novices, Peewees and Bantams travel to Peterborough, site of the Laker Classic.
