Thunder, Warriors both fall in weekend action

Langley senior B Warriors sit in second place while senior A Thunder still winless

The Langley Thunder are still in search of their first victory.

James Rahe and JP Kealey led the Thunder with two goals and five points apiece but that was not enough as they fell to 0-6 in Western Lacrosse Association action after dropping a 9-7 decision to the Maple Ridge Burrards.

The senior A lacrosse game was played on Sunday night at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice.

The teams traded goals to start the game but the Burrards struck for three quick scores in a 1:26 span. The Thunder would get back within one goal but trailed 5-3 after 20 minutes.

Maple Ridge extended the lead to 7-3 early in the second and Langley would never get within two goals.

Adam Will Connar Abrams and Dawson Rodin had the other Thunder goals.

Langley will look to pick up their first win of the season as they host New Westminster on June 21 at the Langley Events Centre. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Senior B Warriors fall short

The Langley Warriors fell in a first-place showdown to the Ladner Pioneers.

The Pioneers won 10-5 at the George Preston Recreation Centre on Friday night.

With the victory, Ladner (7-1-0-0) leapfrogged Langley (6-3-0-1) for top spot in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association standings with a one point lead and two games in hand. The Pioneers have six games remaining while the Warriors have four.

Bryan Poole led Langley with a pair of goals in the loss while Derek Lowe (one goal, one assist), Kerry Susheski (one goal, one assist) and Darren McEwen (one goal) rounded out the scoring.

The Warriors were coming off a pair of victories, having beaten Coquitlam 20-8 and Royal City 10-6 the weekend before.

Langley is back in action on Wednesday (June 21) when they visit the Valley Rebels at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena.
