SPORTS IN BRIEF: Little League provincials underway at Hampton; Jr. Shamrocks grasp playoff life; Jr. B Cougars sign trio

Hampton Little League players wait for their turn to bat during the 11 & 12 provincials at Hampton Park.

Ads take lead on Jr. ’Rocks

The Victoria junior Shamrocks danced through the first round but this one isn’t so pretty.

Through the first two games of their playoff series against the Coquitlam Adanacs the Victoria Shamrocks have mustered just six goals to the 33 for the Ads.

It’s an unwilling submission by the Shamrocks to the reigning B.C. Junior Lacrosse League and national champions.

Coquitlam won 18-4 at Bear Mountain Arena on Saturday and 15 to 2 in Coquitlam on Sunday.

Scoring for the Shamrocks on Sunday were Brody Eastwood and Jake Emms, with Dane Schoor getting two assists.

Goalie Cody Hagedorn faced 55 Adanac shots. Eastwood, Adam Brown, Shea Wakefield, Blair Pinnock scored in Saturday’s game.

Game 3 of the best-of-five-series is Saturday (July 30) in Coquitlam.

Game 4, if necessary, would return to Bear Mountain Arena, 5 p.m. on Sunday (July 31).

New Westminster leads Delta 2-0 in the other semifinal on 8-3 and 6-4 wins.

Hockey’s Cougars sign trio

With junior-B training camps only three weeks away the Victoria Cougars added three midget players to the roster. Cougars’ camp opens Aug. 15 and Nathan Chen-Mack, Kyle Richter, and Trevor Chown should be there.

Coach Mark Van Helvoirt still has a lot of spots to fill but is happy with the recent additions.

Both Chen-Mack and Richter are 17-year-old forwards coming off a season with the South Island Thunderbirds of B.C.’s Major Midget League.  Chown is a defenceman from Calgary’s midget-AAA league.
