Peninsula Warriors mauled by Bears in lacrosse home opener

Intense rivalries expected in a revamped Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League season.

The Peninsula Warriors faced a tough Westshore Bears team Wednesday night (May 2) at Panorama Recreation Centre.

Conditioning and special teams are two areas of focus for the Peninsula Warriors Junior B lacrosse team after dropping their home opener May 2, 10-6 to the Westshore Bears.

Coach Jeff Summerfield says he liked a lot of what he saw from his team in their first game of the season, but added they have work to do, to reach a peak come playoffs in July.

This season of the Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League promises to be an intense one, as Cowichan’s team folded before the start of the season. Summerfield said they were to play their first game of the year on the road, but it was cancelled to the loss of Cowichan.

“What this means is a change in the schedule, more games against the other team and more intense rivalries,” he said.
