A look at the Elora Mohawks
The Guelph Mercury's Rob Massey spoke with the Elora Mohawks new head coach during a pre-season workout.
While they enter the Ontario junior B lacrosse season with a new coach, the style of play for the Elora Mohawks will be pretty much the same as it always. Just a little quicker.
“We’re going to tweak it a little bit,” head coach Rick Wilson said Saturday. “I want to push the ball a little more, like a run-and-gun style. I want the goalies to move the ball a little more and a little more offense generated off the back end, but other than that, it’s going to be (the same).
“It’s the same game. I don’t want to throw too much at them. They had a great coach the last two years in Dean George. I’m not going to come in and change the world, just tweak it.”
Wilson takes over as the bench boss from George, who has moved on to be the head coach of the Brampton Excelsiors of the Ontario junior A league. While George left the Mohawks for junior A, Wilson joined the Mohawks from junior A as he had been the general manager of the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves the last two seasons.
