Senior Raiders…

The Kelowna Raiders made it three straight wins in Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League action, beating the Armstrong Shamrocks 12-9 Friday night at Memorial Arena.

It was a rough start for the Raiders as an early shot careened off the glass, struck Kelowna goalie Graham Cousins in the pads and went in. But from that point, Cousins slammed  the door on the Shamrocks, and also added two assists as the Raiders beat Armstrong for the third straight time.

Newcomer Ryan Sage and counterpart Vic Wiens each scored a hat trick for the Raiders who controlled play in a defensive battle . Braden Renner added a pair, with Joe Brown, Jacob Illichmann, Pho Heng  and Nick Evans each added singles for Kelowna.

The Raiders (3-2) return to action Friday when they travel to Armstrong.
