A third-period charge by the Delta Islanders prevented the Victoria Junior Shamrocks from sweeping their weekend lacrosse games at The Q Centre.

Down 8-4 after two periods Sunday, the Islanders came back to tie it up 11-11 then outscored the locals in overtime for a 13-12 win.

Matt Hamilton made an impact for the ’Rocks in his first game back after being away at school, leading the attack with two goals and three assists. Teammate Ryan Lewis had two and two, while singles were scored by Rees Cullen, Tyson Fair, Max Fredrickson, Nate Wade, David Byrne, Adam Jay, Brock Thompson-Marshall and Nick Preston.

Goalie Charles Claxton was outstanding in goal, making 62 saves as the Shamrocks were outshot by a wide margin.

The loss, combined with a 15-7 win Saturday over the Langley Thunder, leaves the Shamrocks (3-2) in second place heading into this Sunday’s road game in Langley. Victoria returns home May 23 against Burnaby, for a 5 p.m. game.
