Midget Sharks top Cowichan, fall to Comox

Box lacrosse squad's home stand continues with two games this weekend at Oceanside Place Arena in Parksville

Derian Thompson’s hat trick was not enough to lift the Oceanside Sharks midgets to victory Tuesday night, as visiting Comox claimed a 6-4 win over the Sharks in Vancouver Island box lacrosse play at Oceanside Place Arena.

The Sharks were coming off an 8-6 win over Cowichan Valley last Thursday in Parksville, and continue the home stand this weekend with games Saturday against Saanich (1:30 p.m.) and Sunday against Juan de Fuca

(3 p.m.).

Andre Sutter scored five goals and assisted on the other to pace the Comox attack Tuesday. After Sutter scored twice in the first five minutes, Thompson netted his first goal late in the opening period to make it 2-1. The Wild carried a 5-3 lead into the third, but Thompson scored in the opening minute to cap his hat trick and draw the Sharks to 5-4.

From that point, Wild goalie Diego Such kept the hosts off the board, however, and Sutter added an insurance score with just under five minutes remaining for the final margin. Penalty woes also limited Oceanside’s chances to rally. The Sharks were called for 38 minutes in penalty time while Comox had just three penalties for six minutes.

Zach Weldon had a goal and an assist for the Sharks and Leino LeStage had a pair of assists. Thompson also chipped in a helper in the loss.

Sharks 8, Thunder 6

Isaac Waite scored two goals and Aiden Sutherland had a four-point night as Oceanside rode a quick start to the  win over Cowichan Valley May 19.

The Sharks rolled to a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Waite, Tyler Smith and Thompson, and pushed their lead to 7-3 midway through the third period before the Thunder rallied late in the penalty-plagued contest.

Sutherland finished with a goal and three assists in the win. James Shworan, Jose Hope and Wheldon added goals, while Wheldon had two assists and goalie Jarrod Dykstra contributed one assist.

Cowichan racked up 46 minutes in penalties while the Sharks amassed 30 minutes.
