Raiders a win away from senior lacrosse title

The Kelowna Raiders will look to repeat as Shaw Cup champs Friday night as they visit the Armstrong Shamrocks in Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League playoff action.

The Raiders lead the best-of-three final one game to none, following a 15-11 victory on a sweltering Tuesday night inside Memorial Arena.

In 40 degree temperatures, the Raiders had their hands full with Armstrong forwards all evening, as Steve Clark and Carston Schlaak and Kyle Versteeg combined for nine of the Rocks goals.

Defensive efforts from Kelowna’s Sean Blake, Cody Ridden, Andrew Gordon, Dave Haas, Cody Evans, Matt Gorges and Victor Wiens managed to control the defensive zone to contain Armstrong’s effective power play all evening. Rookie Patrick McMillan and Cory Siegner paced the Raiders attack with with three goals each. Luke Bailey and Joe Brown each scored twice, with Cody Evans, Dillon MacLennan, Pho Heng and Jacob Illichmann adding singles.

A third game, if necessary, would be played Tuesday, July 22 back in Kelowna.
