Winning weekend for young Shamrocks lacrosse teams

Juniors, intermediates chalk up a pair of wins each

Three unanswered goals in the third period pulled the Victoria Shamrocks into a 6-6 tie in Coquitlam on Sunday, then two more in overtime completed the 8-6 victory in B.C. Junior Lacrosse Association play.

The defending champion Adanacs kept Shamrocks goalie Charles Claxton busy, but he rose to the task, turning aside 49 of 55 shots faced.

Ryan Lewis led the offensive charge with three goals for Victoria, while Cole Pickup notched a pair. Singles went to Lucas Crowther, Tyson Fair and Max Fredrickson, who also added four assists.

It was the second win of the weekend for the ’Rocks (2-1), who beat an under-manned Port Coquitlam Saints team 11-3 on Saturday at The Q Centre. Pickup, Jamie Jensen and Colin Bashford had two goals each in the win, while Rees and Max Cullen tallied a goal and two assists each. Brandon Senft and Steve Ackinclose had one goal each and Claxton picked up the win in goal.

The ’Rocks host Langley this Saturday (May 9) and the Delta Islanders on Sunday. Both games get underway at 5 p.m.

Intermediate ’Rocks leap into first place

The intermediate ‘A’ Shamrocks are 3-0 and in first place after a pair of B.C. league wins, 16-15 over the Saints in Port Coquitlam on Sunday and 12-7 over Maple Ridge at The Q Centre the day before.
