Islanders sink Tigers in opener

The Delta Islanders tamed the Vernon Source for Sports Tigers 15-7 in the opening game of the B.C. Junior B Lacrosse tournament Saturday night at Kal Tire Place.

The Islanders were relentless all night. They outshot the Tigers 55-25.

The Islanders received hat tricks from Dallas Chriptyk and Tanner Taylor.

“Top to bottom it was a good game by us,” said Islanders’ head coach Dave Haller. “We got good goaltending, good defence, good scoring chances, great transition and we worked hard all night long.”

Ray Calderwood, Mason Limb and Sam Clare each scored a pair for the Islanders, while Nigel Van Doorne, Geordy Haller and Zack Smith recorded singles.

Ryan Sarazin was the only Tiger to figure out the Delta defence. Sarazin sniped four goals and finished with five points.

“Not sure what happened tonight,” said Tigers coach Myles Brumpton. “I’m speechless.”

Connor Buick recorded a pair for the Tigers as Darrell Landels added a single.

The Kamloops Venom downed the Saanich Tigers 11-9 in the other provincial match-up Saturday night at Hassen Memorial Arena.

The Vernon Tigers will battle the Venom 9 a.m. Sunday and the Saanich Tigers will sqaure off with the Islanders at noon at Kal Tire Place.
