Goalie gives up just one goal as Re/Max T-men win again

Nanaimo defeats Langley 6-1 in WCSLA action Sunday at Frank Crane Arena

It’s tough to score on the Timbermen.

The senior B Nanaimo Timbermen had another head-turning performance this past weekend with a 6-1 win against the Langley Warriors on Sunday at Frank Crane Arena.

The win came just eight days after a shutout win, and over their last three games, the Re/Max Timbermen have allowed just seven goals total.

Kyle Couling, coach of the senior B T-men, said this past Sunday’s game “turned out to be a real defensive battle and a goaltending battle.”

The Timbermen trailed 1-0 after one period and the game was tied 1-1 through two.

“We kind of watched the [Warriors’] goalie thorughout the game and analyzed him and then when we finally started shooting the shots that we were asking them to shoot, things came together,” Couling said.

Meanwhile, T-men goalie Pete Dubenski stopped pretty much everything and the coach credited his goalie for really pulling out the victory for the team.

“He was really good. They had a lot of shots in the second and he made some big, big saves in the second on a couple breakaways and a lot of power play saves,” Couling said.

The undefeated Timbermen are allowing only 5.6 goals against per game this season and the coach said the guys are playing well on D. They’re blocking quite a few shots, too, which he said is an underrated factor in lacrosse.

“If you can get your players to commit to kind of stepping into the shooting lanes a little bit more aggressively, it makes the game a lot easier for your goaltender,” said Couling.

Sam Postma scored two goals to lead the T-men offensively and Andrew Miller, Darrin Wilson, Ryan Taylor and Caye Ratcliff were other scorers.

GAME ON … The Timbermen visit Valley on Saturday, June 9, then host Coquitlam on Sunday, June 10, at 5 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.
