Victoria Shamrocks win proves costly

Shamrocks lose Rhys Duch to a season-ending injury

The Victoria Shamrocks announced Rhys Duch suffered a season-ending injury in Friday night’s win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies 15-10.

Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch said in a press release that nothing more would be released about Duch’s injury out of respect for his privacy, adding that the team is heartbroken for him.

“[We’re] more determined than ever to fight through this adversity,” said Welch.

Jesse King lead the way in Friday night’s game, putting up four goals and five assists in the win. The addition of King and defensive stalwart Steve Priolo to the Shamrocks lineup has given the team some much-needed momentum, as Victoria has won three of their last four games.
