Cedar Kings streak ends at five

Mission falls in overtime to Ladner to snap streak

The win streak is over for the Mission Cedar Kings.

After five straights wins in West Central Senior C Lacrosse League action, Mission fell 8-7 in overtime to the Ladner Pioneers on Saturday.

The setback was the Cedar Kings first loss since April 29.

Mission got goals from Cody Thompson (two), Brenton Graham, Paul Makowsky, Linden Beskau, Roderick Sailes and Mike Lowe. Cedar Kings goalie Jeff Lissimore stopped 39 shots in a losing cause.

Despite the loss, the Cedar Kings did earn a single point for the overtime loss.

“We still get the single point and we had tied the game late too,” said Mission’s Cam Slater. “We get three of four points against Ladner on the year which is exactly what we want as we’re making the playoff push.”

The club’s record now sits at seven wins and three losses, and they remain in third place in the league.

Mission returns to action for a pair of games over the weekend, as they battle the Burnaby Lakers on Saturday at 8:45 p.m. in Port Coquitlam. They then travel to Port Moody to take on the hometown Port Moody Express on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Slater said Saturday’s game is important as the top teams jockey for playoff positioning.

“It’s a big game for us to keep near the top of the standings for that playoff spot,” he added.

The Cedar Kings also have a pub night fundraiser at The 14th Avenue Pub on July 1. The event kicks off at 6 p.m., and $25 gets a burger and a beer, with some of the proceeds going to the team.
