Vets take loss to Fergus

By Brian Lockhart


The Shelburne Vets couldn't contain an attack in the second period by the Fergus Thistles during the Friday night, June 24, Junior C lacrosse game at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex.

The game started out well for the Vets after a low scoring first period ended with a 3-1 lead for the Fergus Team.

Darren Tayler notched the first period Vets goal.

It was the second period that saw the Vets in trouble when the Thistles unleashed an offence that kept shooting on the Vets goal leading to a 13-3 score at the end of the frame.

Matt Allen and Cooper Lammie scored the only second period Shelburne goals.

Returning for the final period the Vets got a single from Kayden Morley but that's all they could do for the night and they had to settle for the loss.

"We had a good first period," said Shelburne's Quinn Fraser. "We've always had a bad second period. They're (Fergus) a good team and we tried to play hard but just couldn't pull it out. I think we were playing good but we need to tighten up a little bit. We were taking care of our men, they were just a good offensive team.

The Wilmot Wild are tied with the Fergus Thistles to lead the West Division of the OJBLL - both with a 12-2 record.

The Six Nations Warriors are in third place followed by the Halton Hills Bulldogs and the Oakville Buzz.

The Vets have one more regular season game this year.

It will be moved up a day because of the Canada Day holiday.

The Vets will be back on the floor at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex on Thursday, June 30, to host the Mimico Mountaineers.

Game time is 8:00 p.m.
