The Okanagan’s oldest lacrosse rivalry gets renewed twice this month.
The Vernon Tigers host the Armstrong Shamrocks in the Cats’ final Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League regular-season home game tonight, Thursday, June 2. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Kal Tire Place.
The rivals will meet again for the final time in the regular season Friday, June 17, at Armstrong’s Nor-Val Sports Centre.
Both teams enter tonight’s contest tied for third place in the five-team league with two points. Vernon is 1-3 on the year, Armstrong 1-2. Both are two points up on the expansion Princeton Rangers for the fourth and final playoff spot.
The Shamrocks won both regular-season meetings in the Tigers’ return to the league in 2019.
Armstrong will host the Rangers Saturday, June 4, in a make-up game from May 8. Game time is 6:30 p.m. at Nor-Val.
