WLA Three Stars: Small’s Big Season Continues

This week in the Western Lacrosse Association the Victoria Shamrocks continued their dominance of the league, and two of their players made our list.

Number Three: Curtis Dickson—Maple Ridge Burrards

Dickson made his return to the WLA this week and looked to build off his 2013 season where he recorded 103 points. Dickson in his first two games back made a statement as he had five goals and three assists for eight points in his first two games. Dickson provides an offensive boost to the Burrards and helped lead them to two victories this weekend. With Dickson in the lineup the Burrards are a definite threat to challenge for first in the WLA.

Number Two: Rhys Duch—Victoria Shamrocks

Duch has been phenomenal so far this year and is one half of the dynamic Shamrocks duo which has helped the Shamrocks go undefeated so far this year. In two games this week Duch had eight goals and five assists for 13 points. Duch has been able to find the back of the net with ease this year and the Shamrocks are benefiting from his strong play.

Number One: Corey Small—Victoria Shamrocks

While I already mentioned one half of the Shamrocks offensive duo the other half is Corey Small who has been a nightmare for teams to deal with this season. Small this week had four goals and 10 assists in just two games. Small showed his offensive prowess on Friday night against Burnaby as he had two goals and eight assists for a 10-point night and was a part of 10 of the Shamrocks 13 goals in their victory over Burnaby. Small has proven this year that you may stop him from scoring but he will open up the floor for his teammates and find a way to get them the ball. Small is quickly making strong case to be named WLA MVP for this year.
