The Jr. Shamrocks split a pair of weekend games, winning at home 16-14 over Langley Saturday but falling short on the mainland, dropping a 16-4 game at Queen’s Park Arena against the New Westminster Salmonbellies.
New West held period leads of 5-2 and 12-3 on their way to the win as the Rocks couldn’t get anything going. Scoring for the Shamrocks were Brad McCulley, who added 2 assists, Ben Preston, Nick Murray and Cole Pickup.
It was a very testy game with numerous scuffles. By virtue of the win, New Westminster remains the only unbeaten team in the B.C. Jr. A Lacrosse League at 4-0 while the Shamrocks fall to 4-3.
The Shamrocks will play Langley on the road next Saturday, May 20 and return to the Q Centre to host the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday. In other Saturday action, Coquitlam defeated Nanaimo 10-6.
