The Junior A and Tier 1 Shamrocks will be playing back-to-back games at The Q Centre this weekend.
This will be the first home game for the Junior A squad after they opened league play last weekend in Port Coquitlam against the Saints.
The Junior A team dropped a 5-11 decision to the Saints. Shamrocks’ Ben Preston scored the first goal, before Port Coquitlam went on a 7-0 run.
Victoria’s Braylon Lumb and Preston scored a pair to end the second to pull them within four, but Victoria’s offence was stifled to only 38 shots on net, compared to Coquitlam’s 66 attempts.
The Junior Tier 1 Shamrocks won their home opener against the Burnaby Lakers 17-4 over the weekend at The Q Centre.
The Shamrocks opened with a 7-0 start in the first period, with Isaac Swan getting the Rocks on the scoreboard.
Victoria scored five goals in each of the second and third periods for the decided victory.
The Lakers scored their first goal in the second period, but the Shamrocks responded with a three-goal run from Brody Black and Jonathan Boyd.
