Darrell Landels supplied 2+1 and Aaron Jensen was fabulous in net as the Vernon Source For Sports Tigers toppled the host Kamloops Venom 7-4 Sunday night at Memorial Arena.

The Tigers improved to 3-0 in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League. The Venom dipped to 0-1-1.

Jordy Barr, with 1+2, Thomas Landels, Kyle Cuzzetto, Steele Pelltier and Brock Wagner completed the Vernon offence.

Jerome Thorne pulled the hat trick for the Venom, who got a single from Kienan Campbell.

The Tigers took seven minor penalties and the Venom were assessed 10.

Meanwhile, the South Okanagan Flames upended the Armstrong Shamrocks 15-11 Monday night at Penticton Memorial Arena.

Former Nanaimo Junior A Timbermen Owen Barker registered seven goals for the Shamrocks, while Nicholas Yadernuk and Brayden Hoggarth each supplied deuces. It was 8-2 Flames after one period as they improved to 1-0-1.

“South Okanagan is a much improved team with good defence and a solid offence,” said Rocks’ coach Ryan Williamson. “Our defence was very inexperienced and allowed their players to get in behind us and all alone in front of Cole Macfarlane.

“If we discount the horrible start we outscored them 9-7 in the other two periods.”
