The Pacers hosted the Spartans from St. Catharines in Ontario Jr B Lacrosse league action on Saturday night and dropped a 12 - 10 decision.


After the first period both sides were even 3 - 3 with Dan Charlton scoring all three goals for the Pacers.  In the second it was back and forth with the Spartans scoring first just :34 seconds into the period.  Kevin Conroy tied things up at 11:49 and a power play goal by Dan Charlton at 16:00 gave the Pacers the lead for the first time.  Two minutes later the Spartans answered back scoring two goals :13 seconds apart to take a 6 - 5 lead at the end of the second.


Third period the Pacers exploded scoring five goals with Trevor Hiseler starting things off just :24 seconds into the period.  Blain Adams scored at 3:14 to give the Pacers the lead.  Charlton added his fifth goal of the night to give the Pacers the two goal lead at 3:47.  Kevin Conroy added the fourth goal of the period and Cory Burr added the fifth at 5:20.  From that point on it was all Spartans and they answered back scoring six unanswered goals with the first two being scored on the power play.
