Shamrocks rolling in WLA lacrosse play

Victoria club makes a statement by cranking out eight straight wins

The slow start to the Western Lacrosse Association season seems to be a distant memory for the Victoria Shamrocks.

After losing their first two games to the Nanaimo Timbermen, who have yet to win a game since, the Shamrocks have peeled off eight straight wins to take over top spot in the standings.

The ’Rocks look to make it nine in a row in New Westminster tonight (July 2) when they take on the Salmonbellies. Victoria (8-2) enters the game with a two-point edge on second-place New West (7-3).

The Shamrocks hit the floor at The Q Centre Friday night against the Langley Thunder. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Victoria was coming off a solid weekend, pounding the Adanacs 15-3 on the road in Coquitlam on Saturday after beating New West 18-8 at home the previous night.

Jesse King and Dan Dawson led the attack with six points each against the Adanacs. King and Corey Small tallied eight points each and Dawson seven to pace the attack last week against the Salmonbellies.

The Shamrocks hit the road for a game in Burnaby next Tuesday, then return home for a Friday game July 10 against the Adanacs.
