Junior lacrosse team thumped again

The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team was blown out for a second straight game on Tuesday.

The T-men juniors lost 19-10 to the Victoria Shamrocks down the Malahat. The home team, coming off a lopsided loss themselves, blew away Nanaimo in the first period, jumping to a 7-2 lead on a 26-8 advantage in shots on goal.

Corey Shires led the Timbermen offence with a hat trick and Ryan Sage, playing against his former team, added two goals and picked up eight minutes in penalties. Paul Brebber also scored twice and other Nanaimo goals came from Quinn Smith, James Spence and Glenn Foley. Jericho Paul suffered the loss in net.

The T-men (1-2) play Coquitlam (3-0) on Sunday (May 15) at 5 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.
