Shamrocks tie WLA Championship series at one win apiece


After losing 9-7 in game one in New Westminster to the Salmonbellies, the Victoria Shamrocks returned the favour in game two Sunday night. Andy Neal has more.

The Victoria Shamrocks have turned the best of seven Western Lacrosse Association Championship series into a best of five, running away with an 11-5 decision in game two Sunday night.

The Shamrocks bounced back after a 9-7 loss in New Westminster Friday to open the series, despite the Salmonbellies taking a 3-0 first-period lead Sunday in Colwood.

The Shamrocks scored five goals in the first, three in the second and three more in the final frame to post the game two victory.

Corey Small led the attack with three goals and three assists, with four of those points in the opening stanza.

Rhys Duch and Joe Resetarits added two goals and two helpers each.

The Shamrocks will look for back-to-back wins when they square off with the Salmonbellies for game three of the series Tuesday night in New Westminster.

Game four will be back at the Q-Centre, starting at 6 p.m. Friday night.
