The Nanaimo Acme Painting Timbermen had some added firepower, and it was more than enough to win.

The city’s senior B lacrosse team (4-1) defeated the Port Moody Thunder 11-4 on Saturday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

New addition Blair Pinnock scored four goals in his debut to lead the T-men offence.

“A new team, you want to go out and just fit in, play well with the guys…” Pinnock said. “I was just finding the open space and guys were hitting me.”

There were plenty of other contributors, too, as the T-men built a 5-1 first-period lead and weren’t really threatened.

Shane Chalker scored twice and Rick Fields, Steve Higgs, Stephen MacFarlane, Joey Fendick and Graeme Ross also tallied. Danny Walters made 26 stops.

“We worked hard, worked as a team,” Pinnock said. “A lot of ball movement. The more you move the ball around, the more the defence gets scrambling.”

GAME ON … The senior B T-men play road games Saturday (June 1) and Sunday at Langley and Royal City, respectively.
