Midweek madness for Victoria Shamrocks

Visiting Coquitlam Adanacs put Victoria Shamrocks' unbeaten record to test, Wednesday (June 6) at Bear Mountain Arena

Shamrocks leading scorer Corey Small shoots on Timbermen netminder Zak Boychuk during the 'Rocks 15-10 win at Bear Mountain Arena on Friday (June 1). Small scored four goals and four assists against Nanaimo and added a hat trick in the 'Rocks 17-7 win in Maple Ridge on Sunday.

The Coquitlam Adanacs visit the Victoria Shamrocks for a rare midweek home game today (June 6), 7:45 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena.

The Victoria club is first in the Western Lacrosse Association with four wins in four games, beating the Maple Ridge Burrards 17-7 on the road Sunday, and the Nanaimo Timbermen 15-10 at home on Friday.

Corey Small led the ’Rocks with four goals and four assists against Nanaimo, and Dan McRae helped get the ’Rocks going early with two goals in the first period, his first two of the year.

Small was at it again in Maple Ridge on Sunday, as the Shamrocks feasted on the struggling Burrards.

The St. Catherines (Ont.) native scored once and recorded eight assists, while Jeff Shattler scored six times.

Backup goalie Josh Phillips played all 60 minutes to get his first WLA win.
