Final Playoff Series-Game One: Kelowna Sr Raiders 12, Kamloops Sr Rattlers 10
The Kelowna Raiders took the sting out of the Kamloops Rattlers beating the skilled team in Kamloops to take the first game in the best of three playoff series for the Shaw Cup, Canada’s oldest lacrosse trophy. Kelowna’s Graham Cousins stopped 36 Kamloops shots and was outstanding all evening backing up a tough defence led by Victor Wiens that contained Kamloops’ big shooters. Wiens managed a hat trick in the game on some skilled maneuvers on breakaways. Other Raiders following up on goals were Jordan Innes, Nick Evans and Matt Georges each with 2 goals and added singles from Braden Renner, Pho Heng and Joe Brown. Kamloops gunners were Riley Donahue and Derek Swan each with 3, Travis Joseph with a pair and Curtis and Russ McIntosh each with singles. The series resumes Friday at Kelowna Memorial at 8pm.No comments
The Kelowna Raiders played a disciplined, controlled game to defeat the Shamrocks 13 to 10 in front of their home fans to take the first, best of three playoff series, two games straight. The Shamrock’s intimidating physical play( 56 penalty minutes) kept them in the game until the third period when the Raider’s pesky defenders led by Darcy Leach, Darren Lornson, Sean Blake and Cody Evans controlled the loose balls and created opportunities for their forwards to put the game away. Kelowna’s skilled two way player, Victor Wiens, scored 4 key goals on the way to the win. Also scoring pairs of goals were Joe Brown, Pho Heng and Matt Georges. Singles were added by Braden Renner, Jordan Innes and Chris Phillips. Armstrong’s goals came from Steve Clark with 4, Brennan Plante with a pair and Chris Yargeau and Devin Rodger each with singles.
The Raiders now moves on to the final round of playoffs with the first place Kamloops Rattlers this coming Wednesday, June 17 at Kamloops Memorial Arena at 8pm.No comments
