It’ll be a battle for first place on Wednesday night in the May Game of the Month presented by Intersync Video Productions as the Kelowna Raiders host the Armstrong Shamrocks.

The Raiders (2-1) beat the Shamrocks (2-1) 6-5 at Memorial Arena on April 25 in their only meeting so far.

Both clubs are coming off wins over Kamloops.  The Raiders who haven’t played since May 2, beat the Rattlers 11-7, while the Shamrocks handed them a 15-8 loss last weekend.

Shamrocks’ sniper Pat Nelson leads the Okanagan/Thompson Lacrosse League with 14 points, (7+7), while Luke Bailey of the Raiders has the second most points with 12 (5+7).   As a matter of fact, three of the top four scorers in the League play for the Shamrocks.

The Raiders are the defending Shaw Cup Champions.

The opening face-off on Wednesday night is scheduled for 7:30pm.
