Sharks take bite out of Juan de Fuca

Midget B lacrosse team tops visitors 9-5 to finish four-game home stand with three wins

Derian Thompson had a hand in nearly all the scoring Sunday as the Oceanside Sharks wrapped up a four-game home stand with a 9-5 win over Juan de Fuca in Vancouver Island Midget B box lacrosse play at Oceanside Place Arena.

Thompson finished with five goals and three assists as the Sharks overcame a brief 1-0 deficit in the opening period and pulled away.

Zach Weldon added a hat trick and Adam Bougie scored for the midgets, with Lauryn Martynyk picking up her second straight win in goal. The Sharks went 3-1 in the four home games and hoped to carry that momentum into the road game at Nanaimo Wednesday night. The team is back at Howie Meeker Arena to host Cowichan Valley June 11.

Isaac Waite had a pair of assists in Sunday’s win and Tyler Smith and Dawson Fyfe contributed helpers.
