Timbermen battle Shamrocks, now ready for stretch drive
There was just one game on the schedule for Nanaimo last week and was an all island road match up in Victoria.
The Timbermen were short manned but put in a big effort in an 11-10 loss to the Shamrocks.
Nanaimo got important performances from Junior A call ups Thomas Vaesen (3pts) and Will Johansen (1pt), and were led by Brody Eastwood's five point effort and the 42 saves of Charles Claxton.
With that result and other recent scores Nanaimo is in a three way tie for fourth place in the WLA standings with Burnaby and Langley.
This weekend the team has a pair of home games at Frank Crane Arena.
Langley is in town on Saturday at 7pm, with the Bellies coming Sunday at 6pm.
The Timbermen line up should have some key weapons back for this weekend with the push to the playoffs clearly on.
There were a pair of minor transactions made at the WLA trade deadline with Nick Preston and Anthony Hallborg being released from the club.
