The North Okanagan Super 8 Legends put up a valiant effort but fell 7-5 to the Shuswap Outlaws in Thompson Okanagan Minor Lacrosse Midget B2 division action at Hucul Pond in Salmon Arm Sunday.
Starting the game with only 14 runners, the Legends had two players tossed from the game late in the first period for questioning a non-call on an injured Legends forward.
The Outlaws, who led 4-1 after 20 minutes, had two players ejected following a second period melee which occurred after Stefan Wells scored the first of his three goals for North Okanagan.
The Legends trailed 5-4 after two.
The Outlaws scored on their first two shots of the third, but North Okanagan cut the final margin to 7-5 when forward Dakota Campen took a crushing hit to make a beautiful pass to a streaking Wells for a breakaway goal.
Chase Bronson and Seth Gordey had the other goals for the Legends while goalie Jordie Scherck had a sensational game.
