Three out of the five Nicola Valley Thunder rep lacrosse teams took to the floor on the weekend to begin Thompson-Okanagan league play.

At home, the Thunder peewees kept it close for the first 30 minutes before falling to the North Okanagan Legends 9-2. Nicola Valley scorers were Spencer Vaughan and Brayden McKinney.

On the road, the Nicola Valley Thunder midgets were victorious in Armstrong — defeating their North Okanagan opponents 7-4. Dakota Grismer-Voght led the way for the Thunder, scoring a hat trick. Other marksmen for the Nicola Valley squad were Marcelo Bose and Caleb Hartwig. First-time goalie Kyle Carruthers picked up the win in net.

Nicola Valley’s young novice team was blanked 5-0 by the Shuswap Outlaws in a game played in Salmon Arm.

This Saturday, the Thunder novices host Kamloops at 12 noon, while the midgets take on Kelowna at 3 p.m. Both games are at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena.
