Steven Mayervich made 57 saves in a losing effort as the Langley Junior Thunder managed just a pair of goals in an 8-2 loss.

The team was hosting the New Westminster Junior Salmonbellies on May 1 at the Langley Events Centre in B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League action.

The loss dropped Langley to 0-2 on the season.

New Westminster peppered the Langley goal, finishing with 65 shots on goal compared to 23 for the Thunder.

Despite the lopsided advantage in scoring chances, Langley only trailed 1-0 after 20 minutes and 4-1 after two periods.

Derick Rouse and Dayton McIntosh had the Thunder goals.

The two teams meet again on May 6, this time at Queen's Park Arena.
