Back-to-back losses have dropped the Langley Junior Thunder back down to .500.

The junior A lacrosse squad lost 14-11 to the Port Coquitlam Saints and 17-16 to the Victoria Jr. Shamrocks.

The results drop Langley to 7-7-0 in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League.

Against the Saints at the PoCo Rec Centre on June 15, the Thunder were done in by a disastrous second period which saw them outscored 7-2.

Langley was also hurt by the game misconduct given to goaltender Ryley Brown, who was tossed 10 minuted into the game for an illegal equipment penalty.

Back-up goaltender Giulio Del Branco was pushed into action  and allowed 14 goals on 44 shots.

Brandon Bull (four goals, one assist) and James Rahe (three goals, one assist) led the offence.

Reegan Comeault (one goal, four assists), Jake Taylor (one goal, three assists), Max Weselowski (two goals) and William Vanden Hooven (three assists) also had multi-point games.

The next day at Victoria's Bear Mountain Arena, the Shamrocks won a high-scoring affair 17-16.

Nick Stone (two goals, five assists), Comeault (three goals, five assists), Rahe (four goals, three assists), Taylor (two goals, four assists) and Bull (two goals, three assists) led the offence.

Spencer Evans (one goal), Matt Messenger (two assists), Brendan Mykle-Winkler (one goal, one assist), Eric Ransom (three assists) and Zach Porter (one goal) also found the scoresheet.

Langley will try and end its losing streak on June 19 when they host the Delta Islanders (9-4-1) at the Langley Events Centre. Game time is 8 p.m.
