Junior, intermediate Shamrocks open with mixed results

Lacrosse teams have busy weekend upcoming, both play at home and on mainland

Home floor advantage didn’t quite work for the Victoria junior Shamrocks on Sunday.

The boys in green and white dropped their B.C. Lacrosse Association season opener 9-6 to the New Westminster Salmonbellies at The Q Centre.

Max Fredrickson, Danny Smith and four intermediate ‘A’ call-ups, Brad McCulley, Marshal King, Braylon Lumb and Dave Byrne, scored for the ’Rocks.

Victoria has a chance to even its record this Saturday at home when they host the Port Coquitlam Saints in a 5 p.m. game. The ’Rocks are in Coquitlam on Sunday to take on the Adanacs.

Meanwhile, the intermediate ‘A’ Shamrocks opened with a big 14-7 win over Langley on the mainland on Saturday. Byrne led the way with three goals and two assists, while Lumb, Ben Preston and Liam Finnegan scored twice each. McCulley, Garrett Wicks, Gabe Harman, Colton Merilainen and Brian Robb added singles.

The younger squad opens up for the juniors at The Q Centre this Saturday with a 1:30 game against Maple Ridge. The ’Rocks head to Port Coquitlam for a 2 p.m. game on Sunday.
