CALGARY, AB — In the three weeks since our last Western Lacrosse Association (WLA) update, the Roughnecks players have been rolling.
Let’s begin in New Westminster with our busiest Roughneck, Brandon Goodwin.
Suiting up for six games with the Salmonbellies, Goodwin was very consistent offensively. The lefty found the scoresheet in each game and helped New Westminster go 5-0-1 in the contests.
Goodwin notched seven goals and seven assists in the six games. Of those goals, one was a power play marker, one cameshorthanded, and another was a game winner.
Sitting in second place in the WLA, the Victoria Shamrocks have had some key contributions from a number of Roughnecks players.
Forward Jeff Shattler has netted five goals and six assists, including two power play goals. Defenceman Jon Harnett registered one goal and five assists, Tyler Burton added two goals and one assist, while Greg Harnett was scoreless.
Between the pipes for the Maple Ridge Burrards, Frankie Scigliano was hot and cold.
First, in a close contest with the Langley Thunder, Scigliano was handed the loss after allowing eight goals. However, he rebounded from that game by serving up only seven goals to the Coquitlam Adanacs and earned a win.
His third start was not so nice. He allowed 14 goals to the Shamrocks and was given the loss. His final start of the period was again much better. He allowed seven goals on 35 shots and helped the Burrards beat the Nanaimo Timbermen.
In Burnaby, Peter McFetridge and Tyler Digby were looking to keep the Lakers in the thick of things. McFetridge scores two goals and added one assist, while Digby netted two goals and two assists to help Burnaby go 3-1-1 during that span.
