A break in the schedule came at the right time for the junior B Timbermen – they’re rested and ready for the final stretch of the season.

Nanaimo’s Pacific North West Junior Lacrosse League team defeated Campbell River 15-6 on Saturday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The win came after a 13-day layoff.

“We played really good, we came out with intensity,” said Ken Morrison, the team’s coach. “It was good to see that after 13 days. I was very impressed all round with everybody.”

Dean Borrelli had three goals and two assists and Myles Tierney and Remy Koch also scored hat tricks. Ross Radcliffe and Shawn Best had two goals each. Bryden Pelletier had a goal and four assists and Cody Dimond was Nanaimo’s other scorer. James Brown added four assists.

Goaltender Sten Lundgren earned the win  with 28 saves. His teammates directed 62 shots at Campbell River’s goalie.
