With the Wallaceburg Red Devils in deep for the Ontario Junior B Lacrosse playoff race, a trio of Red Devils have signed to play OLA Junior A lacrosse for the remainder of the season. Wallaceburg’s Jordan Durston and Joel Shepley will be joining the Six Nations Arrows full time, while Mike Myers will play with the Kitchener Braves.

Both Durston and Shepley have already seen time with the Six Nations Arrows this season. Durston has 6 goals and 9 assists in 10 games with the Arrows, while Shepley has played 3 games, scoring once, in a defensive role for the team.

“We’re happy to have both these players for our playoff run,” says Six Nations Arrows Manager and Owner Scott Smith about the duo. “Jordan is an extremely talented player who can make things happen for himself or his teammates. We fully expect him to be as dominant offensively at the Junior A level as he was at Junior B.

“Joel was an unexpected surprise since the first practice at training camp,” added Smith. “He came in and impressed the coaches with his speed and work ethic. He’s very dependable defensively and can lead the rush in transition. Both players have played well so far as AP’s and we expect they will continue to improve with us the more they play.”

With the Red Devils this season, Durston lead the team scoring 47 goals and 55 assists for 102 points in only 16 games. Shepley, had 9 goals and 31 assists in 18 games.

The Six Nations Arrows are currently sitting first overall in the OLA with five games remaining in the season.

Mike Myers, who scored 32 goals and added 48 assists in 18 games this season for Wallaceburg, is expected to join the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves for their playoff push.
