Senior A lacrosse team gets two key players back in the lineup

The Nanaimo Timbermen have games in hand against every other team in the Western Lacrosse Association, so they’ll try to make the most of any chances at points.

The senior A T-men (3-1), following a week-and-a-half break, return to the floor tonight, June 20, with a road game against the New Westminster Salmonbellies. The last time the two teams met, the ’Bellies prevailed in a close game, but the result was later overturned as New West dressed an ineligible player.

On Saturday, June 22, Nanaimo is back on its home floor at Frank Crane Arena for a 7 p.m. faceoff against the Maple Ridge Burrards.

According to a club press release, the Timbermen will be welcoming back two key veterans to the lineup tonight, with forward Chase Fraser and transition player Jordan Gilles set to make their returns.

Fraser, a second-team WLA all-star last season, went on to have a strong season in the National Lacrosse League, scoring 29 goals and 44 points in helping the Buffalo Bandits reach the NLL finals.
