The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League squad defeated the rival Victoria Shamrocks by a 12-8 score on Tuesday, June 28, at Frank Crane Arena.

Nanaimo ended the second period on a 6-0 run and held on for the victory against the BCJALL’s first-place team.

Ryan Sheridan had four goals and three assists to lead the T-men, Arthur Miller had three goals and three helpers and Jack Bowie and Jacob Dunbar both had two and two. Justin Geddie made 39 saves for the win.

Nanaimo (9-3) is just two points back of Victoria (10-3) in the standings.
