Timbermen battle to stay in playoff mix

The Nanaimo Timbermen put themselves in the position, for better or for worse, where all their remaining games will have huge playoff implications.

The Coastal Windows T-men senior A lacrosse team plays three games over the next four days. Nanaimo visits the New Westminster Salmonbellies today (July 19), goes back to the mainland Saturday to take on the Coquitlam Adanacs, and then hosts the Burnaby Lakers on Sunday at Frank Crane Arena.

If the T-men can go on a run, they could push through the traffic jam in the Western Lacrosse Association standings. If they slump, they could find themselves out of the race.

Scott Ranger, Nanaimo captain, said his team will be prepared to start off this stretch with a complete game tonight at New West.

“It’s going to be a battle and we’re going to have to be ready to play for 60 minutes,” he said. “And hopefully we get on the right end of the two points at the end of the night.”

GAME ON … This Sunday’s home game against the Lakers is a 7 p.m. start at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets at the door.
