Junior A lacrosse team improves to 2-4 with victory

Some homegrown talent played a big part as the Langley Junior Thunder picked up their second victory of the season.

Brett Dobray scored four times while Brandon Bull added three more goals in a 10-8 victory over the visiting Victoria Junior Shamrocks.

The two B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League rivals squared off on Saturday at the Langley Events Centre.

The teams were tied at two goals apiece after 20 minutes and then at 5-5 late in the second period. But Bull gave the Thunder the lead for good prior to intermission and Langley added three more goals in the opening 2:44 of the final frame.

Nick Stone had six assists while Adam Will set up three goals.

Eric Ranson (one goal, two assists), James Rahe (one goal, one assist), Ryan Gladiuk (one goal) and James Jackson (one assist) also hit the scoresheet.

Ryley Brown took over in goal midway through the second from Keenan Lambright and finished with 15 saves on 18 shots. Lambright had nine saves on 14 shots.

The loss dropped Victoria to 4-3-0 while Langley improved to 2-4-0.

The Thunder are back in action on May 23 when they visit the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs at the Coquitlam Sports Centre.
