Railmen Open the PNWJLL Season with a Victory
Your Saanich Express traveled up to Nanaimo last evening to face the Nanaimo Timbermen for the Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse Leagues season opener.
Fans in attendance were treated to some great action to start the game as both teams went back and forth with neither goalie wanting to give up the first goal.
The score was not indicative of the play as Nanaimo hustled and worked hard for every loose ball and possession, keeping the Express moving at all times. This game saw minimal infractions and good clean lacrosse throughout.
The Railmen did hold period leads of 6-0, 11-1 and the final was 15-5. The Timbermens’ “Never Give-Up” play made for an exciting game, especially the third period.
Player of the Game for the Express… John Etzel with 3G, 8A, 11PTS.
