The Vernon Sun Valley Source For Sports Tigers finally reached the top of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League standings.

The defending regular-season champions won their seventh straight game Thursday night, and stretched their unbeaten streak to eight games, with an 18-4 win over the Raiders in Kelowna.

Vernon (8-1-1) took on the Shamrocks (1-10) at the Nor-Val Sports Centre Friday.

The Tigers and South Okanagan Flames (8-3-1) have 17 points, one more than the Kamloops Venom (8-3).

Like they did six nights earlier at Kal Tire Place, the Tigers scored nine goals against the Raiders in the opening 20 minutes.

Vernon led 9-3 after one and stretched the advantage to 14-4 after 40 minutes.

Jordy Barr led the offence with three goals and four assists. Ryan Sarazin and Brett Olsen also scored three goals apiece.

Thomas Landels had 2+3, the Pelletier brothers, Jake and Steele, each scored twice while Quintin Harrish picked up five points with a goal and four assists. Conor Webb and Kyle Cuzzetto, with his first of the season, had the other goals for the Tigers, who played both of their goaltenders – starter Darnell Hauca and Jeremy Gray – Thursday. Hauca recorded one assist.

Vernon has three games remaining with the Flames (two) and Venom – all at Kal Tire Place – and plays four of its final five contests at home.
