Vernon Tigers snuff South Okanagan Flames

Vernon Tigers pummel South Okanagan Flames 13-2 in TOJLL play Saturday night at Wesbild Centre.

The Vernon Source For Sports Tigers appear to be finding their swagger in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League.

The Cats reeled off their second-straight lopsided win, grounding the South Okanagan Flames 13-2 Saturday night at Wesbild Centre.

“I was impressed with the team in their ability to remain focussed,” said Vernon head coach Myles Brumpton, who was pleased to see the team lower its penalty minute total (20 PIM).

“We had a job to do and we went in and got it done. Every player knows his job and everybody from the goalie out did their job and did it well.

“Two goals against – there’s not a whole lot more to be said.”

Vernon, now 3-1, hosts the last-place Kamloops Venom (1-5) tonight at Wesbild. The Venom bowed 13-11 to the 2-2 Flames Sunday at Memorial Arena in Penticton.

Nolan Frame netted four goals and three assists for the Tigers, who raced out to a 4-0 first-period lead against South Okanagan. Ryan Sarazin supplied 4+1, Jordan Orr had 2+3, Craig Bigsby collected 1+2 and captain Mason Limb and Quinton Harrish each pocketed singles.

Liam McPhee chipped in with four assists and Daryl Landels added three to help netminder Joel Fruncillo (31 saves).

Jacob Hollenbeck and Kaid McLeod replied for the short-benched Flames who got assists from Ryan Harms, John Ciardullo and Josh Greenwood.

South Okanagan keeper Charles Nicholas made 44 stops.

Meanwhile, Armstrong Shamrock grad Brett Hawrys had three goals and two assists as the host Nanaimo Timbermen bowed 11-10 to the Burnaby Lakers in Junior A play Saturday at Frank Crane Arena.

Owen Barker, another Armstrong product, chipped in with a goal and an assist. Peyton Lupul led the Lakers with four goals and an assist.

Vernon’s Ryan Landels was held pointless as the Port Coquitlam Saints bowed 9-5 to the host Delta Islanders Saturday night at Sungod Arena.
