Delta downs Langley in overtime

Junior Thunder blow late lead, fall in extra time to Islanders

For the second time in two weeks, the Delta Islanders scored late to force overtime and then defeated the Langley Junior Thunder in the extra session.

The junior A lacrosse squads met on Monday night at Delta’s Sungod Arena.

Three times in the third period and overtime, the Thunder took a one-goal lead, but each time, the Islanders notched the equalizer before ultimately scoring the wining goal in an 11-10 victory,

Delta had forced an extra period with the tying goal with just nine seconds to go in regulation.

In overtime, Colton Dow’s power play goal put Langley ahead 10-9 but Logan Schuss scored twice in a 13-second span to give Delta a lead they would not relinquish.

Dow and Adam Will both scored twice for Langley while Nick Stone, Jake Taylor, Sean Lundstrom, Brandon Bull, Eric Ransom and Max Weselowski had a goal apiece.

The Thunder saw their record fall to 10-10-0 heading into the regular season finale on July 5 at the Langley Events Centre against the first-place Coquitlam Junior Adanacs (15-3-0).
