The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team will be challenged, right from the very first faceoff of the season.
The T-men start the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League schedule today (April 27) with a road game against the defending-champion Coquitlam Adanacs.
“It really gives you a good pace right off the bat of the top teams in the league and how we can compete with them and see what we need to work on,” said Ryan Hanna, Timbermen alternate captain.
Mitch Parker, T-men attacker, played with the Delta Islanders in last summer’s league final against the Adanacs. Now back with his hometown Timbermen, Parker thinks his squad is ready to go.
“We’re getting a lot better, real fast,” he said. “I’m really excited for playing Coquitlam. I think we’ll give them a good run.”
