Cross your fingers: Langley Thunder are hoping to open a new WLA season in June

It depends on whether they get approval from the provincial health officer

Langley Thunder action will return to the Langley Events Centre in June, in what will be the first game of a scaled-back 2021 season for the Western Lacrosse Association (WLA).

There’s a big if, however.

For it to happen, the league will have to have permission from the Provincial Health Authority, which will depend on how the battle against COVID-19 is going.

If all works out, plans call for a 12-game schedule, down from the traditional 18 games, with each team completing a home-and-home set against the rest of the league.

The Thunder game against Coquitlam is scheduled for June 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Langley Events Centre.

All six Thunder home games will all be played on Wednesday nights.
