The Coastal Windows Timbermen senior A lacrosse team (5-5-2) hosts the Langley Thunder (6-6-1) on Saturday (July 16) at Frank Crane Arena, then visits the Maple Ridge Burrards (5-9) on the mainland Sunday.

“We’re fresh, we’re hungry. The back-to-back doesn’t bother me at all,” said Art Webster, Timbermen coach.

His fourth-place team views the games as crucial to improving its standing in the Western Lacrosse Association.

“We’re going to try to push for second or for third spot,” Webster said. “We’re not looking at just making the playoffs, we want to position ourselves.”

GAME ON … This Saturday’s game against Langley is a 7 p.m. start at Frank Crane.
