Sports briefs: Thunder fall, Credo gets bronze and LOSC swimmers get gold

Round-up of local stories

Timbermen top Thunder

Nanaimo Timbermen used a quick strike offence to overpower the Langley Thunder 15-10 in Saturday night lacrosse action at Langley Events Centre.

In all three periods, the Timbermen scored a pair of goals in quick succession, tallying twice in 35 seconds in the opening frame, scoring two goals in 24 seconds in the middle frame and then back-to-back goals in the final period.

“We talked about how important it was to start the third period and boom, they score a couple of goals, and it just deflates us,” said Thunder head coach Rod Jensen.

With the win, Timbermen improved to 3-1 while Langley saw their Western Lacrosse Association Senior A record drop to 1-4.

Soccer bronze for Credo
