Coming into this week the struggling Timbermen were 2-1 in their last three games and looking to find some positives on a weak season for them (4-9-1), and last week Cayle Ratcliff did exactly that. Although only potting 1 point (1G) early in the week, he exploded for a 9 point (4G, 5A) effort in Coquitlam and carried the team on his back against a Adanac’s team fighting to stay in the playoff hunt late in the season. Cayle Ratcliff earned the first star of the game and also of the week!
Daryl Veltman has played consistent all year and last week was no different. Although the A’s have lost 4 straight games Daryl has had a hot stick getting 3 points (1G,2A) against the Burrards and then continuing his hot week putting in 6 points (4G,2A) in a close game against Nanaimo. If Coquitlam turns this late seasons slump around and makes the post season it will definitely be on the help of Daryl as he has had a strong season and kept the Adanacs in games all year earning himself the second star of the week!
Going 1-2 in their last three games the Burnaby Lakers’ (7-6) Tyler Digby has been a dark horse for the Lakers all year. Starting the week against the Thunder he earned himself 5 points (3G,2A) and was all over the floor and also getting the first star of the night, then he continued his hot week against the Shamrocks lighting it up for another 5 points (3G, 2A) to earn himself the third star of the week!
Since coming over in a trade a few weeks ago from Major Series Lacrosse, Dhane Smith has done what he does best and that is put up consistent numbers. With three points (1G,2A) in a strong win over the Lakers, Smith has shown why he was acquired by a Shamrocks team looking to win their second straight WLA title.
Goalie of the week
Playing solid, technical lacrosse has gotten Frankie Scigliano goalie of the week honors. Going 3-0 as of late and stopping 33/38 vs aCoquitlam team looking for a late season push, he shut the door and kept the Burrards up to pace with the Shamrocks and will be looked upon to keep up the solid play as the post season push starts and the games get faster and usually higher scoring!
