Weekend split for Cowichan’s midget B Thunder

The midget B Cowichan Valley Thunder split a pair of lacrosse games last weekend, beating the Campbell River Ravens 7-2 at the Island Savings Centre on Saturday, then falling 10-3 to Juan de Fuca on the road on Sunday.

Facing each other for the first time this season, the Thunder and Ravens battled hard in the first period, but neither team was able to get on the board until Cowichan scored with 15 seconds left in the first period.

The next goal came just 90 seconds into the second frame, and the Thunder were in control for the rest of the game.

Gavin Spencer scored five goals, and Scott McCaffrey had the other two. Nathan Clark, Clayton Raphael and Cole Wright had assists.

Spencer had a goal and an assist against JDF, with David Eastman and Liam Bell also scoring. Wright, Raphael and bantam call-up Brendon McDill had helpers.
