Big wins for Cowichan’s M.I. Lightning

The two Mid Island Lightning teams who actually got to play field lacrosse games last weekend earned victories, improving their records to 3-0, while the third Mid Island squad had to sit idle.

The U14 Lightning had an 11-8 win over the North Island Ravens in Campbell River on Sunday.

"The game was 110 per cent from the first face off, with strong and aggressive defensive plays by the Mid Island poles to fast footwork by the middies and attacks," manager Paula Harris said. "There was no slow-down time."

Arthur Miller had four goals and an assist, and Caleb Nordstrom scored twice and added two helpers. Ryan Smith and Denton Macdonald also had two goals each, and Sam Baxter scored once.

The U12 Lightning played host to Victoria at Evans Park, winning 15-3. Cameron Lumb led the way with seven goals, while Brandon Carlson had three goals and one assist. Seth O’Brien, Jeremy Benson, Connor Loch-Labelle, Patrick Wong and Dawson Thibedault all had single goals.

The U16 Lightning travelled south to play Victoria, only to have no opposing team once they reached the field.

Both the U16 and U12 Lightning will be at home this weekend, the U16s playing at the Cowichan Sportsplex at 11 a.m. on Saturday and the U12s at the Sportsplex at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday. The U14s visit Pacific Rim on Sunday.
