The junior A Nanaimo Timbermen lost the war of 18-12 to start their season. The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League club fell to the Delta Islanders by an 18-12 score on the Lower Mainland on Saturday.

Corey Shires scored six goals and added two assists, Brett Hawrys and Cole Kryworuchka had two each, Travis Mickelson had a goal and three assists and Jaeden Gilles has the other goal for the Timbermen.
