The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team will move forward after another tough loss.
The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team (0-7-1) was doubled up 14-7 by the Port Coquitlam Saints on Sunday on the mainland.
The teams met two weeks earlier at Frank Crane Arena, with the Saints prevailing 8-7, but this time the result wasn’t as close.
Mitch Parker led Nanaimo’s attack with two goals and two assists and Evan Benham, Brett Fleming, Adam Backular-Evans, Marino Best and Ryan Nicks were other goal scorers. Cory Mayzes and Pete Dubenski split time in goal for the T-men as the visitors were outshot 47-38.
PoCo’s 14 goals were the most that team has scored in a game since 2009.
GAME ON … The Timbermen will try to get the better of the Saints (3-4) on Saturday (May 26) when the teams play at 5 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. The juniors then travel to face the Coquitlam Adanacs (6-0) on Sunday evening.
