The Victoria junior Shamrocks’ first winning record of the season lasted just one day.

Following the Shamrocks’ 9-5 victory over the visiting Port Coquitlam Saints at Bear Mountain Arena on Saturday, the team was “taken to school” by the Coquitlam Adanacs, said general manager Rod Wood.

Wesley Berg scored five times in the first period, seven times in all as the Ads roughed up the Shamrocks 14-3 in Coquitlam Sunday night. The loss puts Victoria at two wins, two losses in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League schedule.

Scoring for the Shamrocks against the Ads were Brody Eastwood, Dane Schoor and Blair Pinnock.

Just a day earlier, however, Schoor and Pinnock each tallied hat tricks and Jesse King scored two goals and three assists in leading Victoria over the Saints.

Shamrocks goalie Cody Hagedorn played well, kicking out 32 of the 37 shots he faced in picking up the win. Check www.vicnews.com for results of the Jr. ’Rocks’ Tuesday night match versus the Nanaimo Timbermen.
