Shamrocks lock playoff spot

The Victoria Shamrocks will face the Coquitlam Adanacs in the first round of playoffs on Saturday

The Victoria Shamrocks will face the Coquitlam Adanacs in the first round of playoffs on Saturday after ending the season with two definitive wins.

The ’Rocks clinched a playoff spot last Friday after defeating rivals the Nanaimo Timbermen 11-7 at home, in what was their biggest game of the season.

The Shamrocks needed one win of their next two games to secure an entry into postseason play.

Victoria’s big guns were too much to handle for the Timbermen, with Corey Small leading the way with five goals in the Victoria win. Jeff Shattler contributed a hat trick, Ryan Benesch added a pair, while Derek Lowe had one goal with three assists.

The ’Rocks wrapped up their season Sunday with a 14-10 win over the Timbermen, which locked the Shamrocks into second place in the Western Lacrosse Association standings.

Victoria won one and lost two during the regular season against third-place Coquitlam.

The Victoria Shamrocks best of seven series against the Adanacs begins Aug. 4, 7:45 at Bear Mountain Arena. See victoriashamrocks.com.
