The sign of a good team is a team that learns and responds. Consider then, the Burnaby Lakers. They started the 2013 Western Lacrosse Association with a 1 3 mark that included losses to Nanaimo, Victoria and Maple Ridge. And since that slow start, the Lakers are 6 3, which includes wins over Nanaimo, Victoria and Maple Ridge. The point? You might have beaten Burnaby early on this season, but the Lakers didn't wallow in despair. They got back on the horse and fixed what was wrong. "We have a lot of potential.

goal scorer, and that's what makes him so special. He's so talented," said Jensen. (Langley Advance) . The Langley Thunder are auctioning game worn jerseys to raise funds for the Tessa Beauchamp Foundation, named for the Surrey teenage who died of cancer in 2012. (Langley Times).
Church knows what kind of team it takes to win. He was a big part of Coquitlam's 2010 Minto Cup champion, and while the Lakers didn't exactly get the press as favorites when the season started, they've got everyone's attention now.
They're not quite out of the playoff hunt, but there isn't much wiggle room for the Nanaimo Timbermen, who sit last in the WLA with 8 points. With 5 games left on the schedule, the Timbermen have a tough weekend ahead of them with the WLA's best defensive team (Langley) on Saturday and the highest scoring team (Maple Ridge) on Sunday. "Guys are still optimistic, still positive that we can do it. It's just going to come down to playing mistake free lacrosse. It's the little things," said coach Kaleb Toth. (Nanaimo Bulletin) . The T men might be feeling a bit Nike Air Vapormax Ltr Triple Black better had calls gone their way in last Saturday's 11 10 loss to Maple Ridge. Jim Delaney's goal late in the third that would have tied the game was called off for a crease violation, not long after a Curtis Dickson goal which some say was a crease violation for Maple Ridge was allowed to stand as the winner. "I can't understand why one guy gets three feet in the crease and scores a goal and it's a good goal, and our guy is outside the crease and it's not a goal. I don't understand calls like that, especially late in the game. If you let one go, you've got to let both go," said Toth. (Nanaimo Daily News) . After a 5 1 start to the season, the Victoria Shamrocks are 4 3 since and are looking for a return of the mojo from that hot start. Playing at New West last night and at home to Langley tonight will give the Shamrocks a better idea of their makeup. "We have some bumps and bruises, we have guys who aren't 100 per cent healthy, but we have depth. It doesn't play in the back of my mind, at all. We're not short handed by any stretch," said coach Bob Heyes. (Victoria Times Colonist) . It's a tough sell in New Westminster these days as the Salmonbellies have won just 1 game in their last 6. They beat Victoria last night, which could be the start of the momentum they've been looking for. "We don't have that short term memory of coming back and winning. You go in trying to win the next game, and if you win those games, you put yourself back in the game," assistant coach Russ Heard said. (Royal City Record) . The Langley Thunder swept the 3 game season series with the Maple Ridge Burrards, surviving last Sunday for a 13 12 win over the Burrards. And even though coach Rod Jensen was back on the Langley bench, he saw enough in 1 game to know Maple Ridge is for real. "We and Victoria are touted as the teams to beat, based on our experience and talent. We beat them (the Burrards) three times, but I'd hate to face them in the playoffs," said Jensen. (Maple Ridge News) . Thunder coach Rod Jensen pretty much said what's universally known about the team's roster following the big trades, especially when it comes to forward Dane Dobbie. "He's incredible. He's an incredible goal scorer, a clutch Nike Vapormax Khaki Anthracite On Feet
"It feels good to be part of this team. I think we can do something," Church said. "I knew I was going into a young team that had a lot of talent. I was excited to go to a young team."
Burnaby Lakers rebound from lessons
to tell, but it feels like this could be a year we have a run," rookie Robert Church told Burnaby Now. "There's a tight knit feel. It's a fun place to be. With all the teams I've been on that's where it starts."
That's what happens when you go from low expectations to challenging the likes of Victoria and Langley for the WLA's regular season title. Burnaby has 14 points, tied with Maple Ridge, to stand just 4 points shy of co leaders Victoria and Langley.

That could change tonight, though, as Burnaby hosts an Adanacs team that's fighting for its playoff life. Beating Coquitlam would even Burnaby's record at 7 7.
It also helps when you come back to beat opponents that handed you defeats earlier. In addition to the 3 teams mentioned before, Burnaby also has exacted revenge on New Westminster. So of the 5 teams to beat Burnaby this summer, the Lakers have rebounded against 4. And the only reason they haven't done that to Coquitlam, which defeated Burnaby on June 22, is because the teams haven't had their rematch yet.
be optimistic heading down the WLA stretch, and plenty of reasons for fans to be on the edge of their seats as a league title that appears to be up for grabs is contested.
What's more, the Lakers are in very good shape should tiebreakers be needed at season's end. They're 2 0 against Langley the team that knocked them out of last year's WLA playoffs in the first round and 2 1 against Victoria. They're 1 1 vs. Maple Ridge with the third game of that series set for July 19, in Burnaby.
Granted, Church has played just 4 games with the Lakers. But he's got 11 points (5 6) in those games and the Lakers are 3 1 with him in the lineup. So there's plenty of reasons for the Lakers to Nike Air Vapormax Plus Triple Grey
