Shamrocks face tough road trip

The Victoria Shamrocks passed a great hurdle last week, defeating the New Westminster Salmonbellies 12-10.

Corey Small of the Victoria Shamrocks shoots while leaping through the air against goalie Neil Tyacke of the New Westminster Salmonbellies. Small scored a goal and four assists as the Shamrocks won 12-10 at Bear Mountain Arena last Friday.

The Victoria Shamrocks are on the road against the Burnaby Lakers tonight (June 29) and Langley Thunder tomorrow.

The Rocks passed a great hurdle last week, defeating the New Westminster Salmonbellies 12-10.

The win put the Shamrocks in a tie with the Langley Thunder for first in the Western Lacrosse Association. Beating the rival Salmonbellies is a measuring stick for the Rocks, which is the second-ranked club in the country this week on the Subway LacrosseTalk rankings.
