Mark Matthews fired four goals as the host Langley Thunder outgunned the Victoria Shamrocks 12-10 in Game 3 of the Western Lacrosse Association final Wednesday night.

Brett Mydske scored twice for the regular-season champion Thunder. Garrett Billings, Scott Johnston, Adam Jones, Tor Reinholdt, Dane Dobbie and Ian Poole added singles.

Vernon’s Brodie MacDonald, Langley’s starting netminder, had the night off, giving way to Nick Rose, who finished with 36 saves.

Matt Vinc recorded 30 stops for the Shamrocks. He was relieved by Matt Flindell for the final 2:50.

Victoria, who boasted the league’s best offence in the regular season, got deuces from Rhys Duch, Scott Ranger and Jeff Shattler. Singles came from Tyler Hass, Karsen Leung, Dan MacRae and Brody Eastwood.

Langley takes a 2-1 series lead into Game 4 tonight in Victoria.
