Shamrocks sign key cog in championship wheel

Playmaker Cory Conway wrapped up for 2016 Western Lacrosse Association season

With top scorer Corey Small confirmed for the 2016 Western Lacrosse Association season, the Victoria Shamrocks have locked up their other Cory for the upcoming campaign.

Cory Conway, who has helped the club reach the Mann Cup in both of his two seasons on the West Shore, including playing a major role in last year’s championship run, was announced as a returnee.

“I’m very pleased to have Cory back in our lineup this year,” said Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch in a release. “He is an elite player in this sport, in the prime of his career. As his stats clearly illustrate, he is a very dangerous offensive weapon who possesses an unbelievable shot and some of the most creative playmaking skills I’ve ever seen.”

Slick playmaker Conway, 29, wound up fifth in the 2015 WLA points parade, scoring 12 goals and piling up 55 assists in 18 regular season games. He added 29 points in eight playoff games, and eight more points in four Mann Cup games.

The native of Brentwood Bay toiled for the Nanaimo Timbermen before coming to the Shamrocks for the 2013 season.

He took the 2014 WLA season off. He also played with four different teams in the professional National Lacrosse League.
