Cedar Kings knock off Burnaby

Mission posts third straight win in men’s lacrosse action

The Mission Cedar Kings kept rolling on the weekend, picking up their third straight win in Port Coquitlam on Saturday.

Mission took down the Burnaby Lakers 8-3, and are now tied for second place in the West Central Senior C Lacrosse League.

The Cedar Kings had goals from Cam Fielding, Cody Thompson (four), Owen Munro, Josh Kaiser and Trevor Gallant. Players picking up helpers included: Tyler Voisey, Fielding, Thompson, Brenton Graham, Munro (two), Makowsky and Lowe (two).

Mission goalie Jeff Lissimore stopped 32 saves in the win. Mission’s Cody Thompson said it’s been a good start for the Cedar Kings, but that they need to continue pushing the pace.

“The team is happy with our start but we know that any team can win on any given night so if we want to remain among the top of the league we are going to have to continue to find ways to win the close games,” he said.

Mission’s record now stands at five wins and two losses, with 11 games to go in WCSCL action for 2017.

The Cedar Kings return to action on Saturday and Sunday, with both games occurring at the Langley Events Centre’s Fieldhouse.

Mission battles the North Shore Indians on Saturday at 1 p.m., and then takes on the Langley Warriors at 3:45 p.m. The following week, Mission squares up with the Ladner Pioneers in Port Coquitlam on June 10.

Cedar Kings’ team officials also shared that they are trying to get another home game at the Mission Leisure Centre later this season.
