U12 Lightning undermanned, not outplayed

Despite starting out with the bare minimum number of players on the field, the U12 Mid Island Lightning managed to win 10-7 in the first game of their doubleheader against the Nanaimo Raiders last Sunday.

The Lightning, who had 12 players dressed by the time the game finished, got five goals from Brandon Carlson, two goals and an assist from Jeremy Benson, two goals from Cam Lumb and one goal from Dawson Thibedeau.

Mid Island started the second game with 14 players and won 9-6, scoring three unanswered goals in the fourth quarter. Lumb scored seven times, Carlson had a goal and an assist, and Thibedeau scored once.

The U12 Lightning are off to the Richmond Romp this Saturday to Tuesday.

The U14 Lightning suffered their first defeat of the season last Sunday as they fell 10-7 to Victoria 2 in the first game of their doubleheader, but got some measure of revenge by winning the second game 9-8. Caleb Nordstrom led the way in the first game with three goals, while Kurtis Smith scored twice, and Max Gammie and Eugene Sylvester-Alphonse had one goal apiece. Nordstrom, Nathan Clark and Ryan John all scored twice in the second game, while Smith, Colin Jeffrey and Logan Hammerer had one each, and Jazzy Shafi added an assist.

The U16 Lightning won 14-0 over Victoria last Saturday as the teams combined for 45 minutes in penalties.

Michael Shepard, Clayton Vickers, Jaeden Ashbee, Brian Robb and Lucas Nagel each scored twice, while Brayden Grantham, Marc Gagnon, Kyle Page and Jacob Taylor had singles. Brayden Zunti earned the shutout in his first appearance as a goalie.

U16 Lightning players Robb and Mat Jung are heading to Baltimore this weekend for the Brine Fall Ball National Recruiting Tournament.
