Lightning teams sweep Vic Field counterparts

The U16 Mid Island Lightning demolished their Vic Field counterparts in both ends of a doubleheader at Evans Park last Saturday, then did it again in Victoria the following day.

The Lightning prevailed 18-3 in the first half of the doubleheader and 19-5 in the second half. On Sunday they won 11-6. Mid Island has won seven of eight games so far this year, with four league games to go in 2015.

The U14 Lightning won a pair of road games last Sunday, first playing Vic Field 2 at the Juan de Fuca fields, then facing Pacific Rim 3 at UVic.

Mid Island won 8-6 in the first game on four goals by Arthur Miller, three by Derian Thompson and one by Tyler Smith, with Sam Baxter in net. In the second game, Colin Jeffrey got the shutout in goal as Mid Island won 11-0. Logan Hammerer and Caleb Nordstrom each recorded hat tricks, while Miller, Baxter, Tyler Smith, Kurtis Smith and Griffin Fielden-Diaczuk had singles.

"For the final game of the season, the Mid Island players put everything that coach Dale [Nordstrom] had taught them and presented it all to Pac Rim 3 with every pass, block and goal they achieved," manager Paula Harris said. "It was great to see all of their hard work paying off for a great end of the regular season."

The U14 Lightning will begin preparing for the playoffs and provincial championships in January.
