Victoria – After a video review of the Victoria Shamrocks’ 9-6 win over the Burnaby Lakers on Tuesday night, Western Lacrosse Association commissioner Ernie Truant has assessed the following suspensions:
Corey Small – One game suspension
Jon Harnett – One game suspension
Scott Rouse – One game suspension
* All three suspensions were related to what were perceived as blows to the head
Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch commented on the loss of Small and Harnett for tonight’s game. “Winning on the road in the playoffs is challenging enough,” said Welch, “and it will be much more difficult without these two premier players in our lineup tonight. It is what it is, and we will have to battle through it to get to where we want to be.”
The Shamrocks are up 1-0 in the best-of-seven series, and will look to return home of Friday with a two game advantage.
Next home game
Your Victoria Shamrocks will return home on Friday August 12th at 6:00pm for game three of the WLA semi-finals.
