Timbermen what Jr. ’Rocks needed

Hosting the Nanaimo Timbermen on Tuesday allowed the Victoria junior Shamrocks to get right back on the horse after Sunday’s loss.

The Jr. ’Rocks pounded the Timbermen 19-10 at Bear Mountain Arena. The offensive outbreak was a big bounce back from Sunday’s dismal 14-3 loss against the Coquitlam Adanacs.

Four players recorded hattricks Tuesday including Karsen Leung, the all-star transition player in his first game since returning from Bellarmine University

Adam Brown scored three goals and seven points, while Brody Eastwood and Chris Wardle also had three goals each.

Dane Schoor chipped in another two goals and is up to 11 goals on the season, tied with Brody Eastwood for the league lead.

Brandan Smith, Ben Stebbins, Blair Pinnock, Kirk Russell each added singles.

Intermediate call-up Jordan Cunningham picked up five assists in his first junior game.

At home the Shamrocks are undefeated in three games and are tied for first in the standings with the Adanacs, though the latter hold two games in hand.

The Shamrocks visit the Burnaby Lakers on Sunday.
