Weekend sweep for Lightning

The three Mid Island Lightning field lacrosse teams combined to go 5-0 last weekend, despite having to move their games around to deal with the rainy weather.

The U12 Lightning ended up playing their games against Campbell River’s North Island Rage in Comox last Saturday, and won both contests convincingly.

Brandon Carlson and Cam Lumb each scored four goals in the first game as Mid Island won 13-3. Patrick Wong added two goals, and Cole Ursulan, Jeremy Benson and Dawson Thibedeau had singles.

Lumb and Conner Loch-Labelle had hat tricks in the second game, a 15-4 win for Mid Island. Carlson, Thibedeau, Wong and Dawson Sears each scored twice, and Devyn Zunti rounded out the scoring with one.

Also on Saturday, the U16 Lightning moved their home game to Nanaimo, but weren’t bothered by the relocation, winning 14-12.

Brian Robb had five goals and an assist and Thomas Vaesen had four goals and a helper to lead the way offensively, while Colton Lidstone, James Taylor, Brayden Grantham, Dallas Johnson and Kyle Page had singles.

The U14 Lightning played their two games at home as the sun came out on Sunday, and dominated both ends of the double-header with Pacific Rim 2. Mid Island won the first game 19-5 as Caleb Nordstrom scored five times, Derian Thompson and Sam Baxter had four goals each, and Logan Hammerer and Arthur Miller recorded hat tricks.

Baxter added three more in the second game, Hammerer and Thompson had two each, and Tyler Smith and Nathan Clark had singles as the Lightning won 9-5.
