Bears bite Junior Ravens in home opener

After falling behind 3-0 in the first period, the Junior Ravens lacrosse team battled back in club’s home opener of the season.

After falling behind 3-0 in the first period, the Junior Ravens lacrosse team battled back in club’s home opener of the season.

But it wasn’t quite enough as the Ravens fell 7-5 to the Westshore Bears on Sunday afternoon at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

The Bears dominated the opening 20 minutes as the young Ravens – the team has 10 rookies – seemed a bit apprehensive. The score could have been worse, but Ravens’ goalie Logan Down made a number of quality saves.

However, with the opening period jitters out of the way, the Ravens’ offence got in gear. Hayden Smith scored at 1:11 into the second period while Eddy Lawson tallied the second at the 2:50 mark. Five minutes later, Tyson Fair tied the score.

But then Westshore answered with two more markers to take a 5-3 lead heading into the final frame.

The third period started with a goal from the Bears, but the Ravens quickly came back with a second marker by Smith from Lawson.

Less than two minutes later, as the large crowd watched with anticipation, Brad Remple took a breakaway up the floor to find his way around the goalie, scoring the Raven’s fifth marker of the game.

Westshore made sure the one-goal spread didn’t last long, as a few seconds later the Bears scored the last goal of the game.

On Sunday, the Ravens travel to Victoria to take on the Peninsula Warriors.
