New West juniors hitting tough times

Jr. A Salmonbellies back at .500 after loss on the road in Nanaimo last weekend

New Westminster was stymied by a red-hot goalie in Nanaimo last week.

Jerryd Jensen, a 6-6 Ontario product, stoned the visiting junior A Salmonbellies, stopping 54 shots en route to a 10-6 win in a B.C. Junior Lacrosse League matchup last Saturday.

Nanaimo led 8-2 heading into the final period on five-point games from Brett Hawrys and Connor Leies. Luke Morris had a goal and two helpers for New West.

With a difficult week upcoming, New Westminster can ill afford to give up any more points to the leaders.

The junior Salmonbellies take on the Port Coquitlam Saints, 9-7 losers to the Burnaby Lakers on Sunday, at Queen’s Park Arena tonight (Tuesday) at 8 p.m.

New West is in Langley on Thursday, before hosting the junior ’Rocks at Queen’s Park on Sunday, June 14 and then the Adanacs on Tuesday, June 16 at 8 p.m.
