T-men try to build a win streak

The Nanaimo Timbermen seized momentum and won their last game, and they’ll try to keep rolling.

The senior A Western Lacrosse Association team visits the New Westminster Salmonbellies today (July 8) and then the Coquitlam Adanacs on Saturday.

Timbermen coach Kaleb Toth said his team’s comeback win last week was a big step.

“I think they’re going to be motivated now,” he said.

The key will be a consistent work ethic.

“Every game that we’ve won, we’ve outworked our opponent and we have to continue to do that in order to be successful,” the coach said.

The T-men have defeated both the ’Bellies and Adanacs this season.

“I think we have a chance to go on our first win streak this year, so I think the boys will be pretty fired up,” said Cayle Ratcliff, alternate captain.

Nanaimo’s next home game is against New West on July 19 in Duncan.
