Local lacrosse teams in full swing

It was a pretty busy weekend for both of Red Deer`s junior `B` lacrosse squads.

The tier two junior `B` Red Deer Sword Transport Revenge were at home Saturday for an afternoon contest against the Medicine Hat Sun Devils.

The game went to overtime, with the undefeated Sun Devils maintaining their perfect record with a 14-13 win over Red Deer.

Jordan Hemstead lead all Revenge scorers with four goals, including the game tying marker late in the third period.

Troy Klaus, David Westwood, and Ryan Svederus each scored twice in the loss, while Levi Whitney, Mitchell Giele and Matthew Gibson each had singles.

Orin Farries took the loss in net for the Revenge.

Sunday saw the Revenge head to Calgary where they picked up a 10-4 win over the host Wranglers.

Hemstead kept his hot streak going with a three goal performance for Red Deer, while Farries was solid in picking up the win.

Brock Forbes and Karsten Banack each tallied two goals, with Klaus, Svederus, and Westwood each chipping in with singles as the Revenge improved to 5-3 on the season.

Red Deer`s tier two junior `B` Weatherford Renegades, meantime, started their two game weekend Saturday on the road in Calgary.

Dion Daoust scored twice and Ryan Margetts scored once as the Renegades lost 10-3 to the Wranglers.

The Renegades returned home Sunday for a game against the Sun Devils, and despite scoring 12 goals, Red Deer still lost 15-12.

Dylan Thudium paced the offense with four goals, while Daoust and Londyn Chu each scored three times.

Braden Sparks and Margetts wrapped up the scoring for Red Deer with singles.

In tier one junior `B` action, Red Deer`s TBS Rampage won both their games this past weekend, beating the Calgary Chill 12-8 on Saturday before hosting the Calgary Shamrocks on Sunday and beating them 11-4.

Trevor House lead all scorers on Sunday, scoring two goals for Red Deer and adding two assists, in a game that manager Marty Vellner said was perhaps their best overall effort of the season.
