Valley Rebels return to the floor

Abbotsford-based lacrosse team hosting games on Friday and Saturday

The Valley Rebels lacrosse club is hoping for a bounce-back year in 2017, and kicks off its home regular-season schedule with games tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) in Abbotsford.

After a winless 2016 West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association campaign, the Rebels opened the 2017 WCSLA regular season in Coquitlam on May 7, and lost 9-5 decision to the host Adanacs. Dylan Pollitt led the Rebels’ scoring with two goals and two assists.

Pollitt was second in team scoring in 2016, with 15 goals and 10 assists in 10 games.

The Rebels’ home opener is tonight at the MSA Arena at 8 p.m., with the club hosting the Victoria Wolves. They return to action tomorrow to host the Nanaimo Timbermen at the Abbotsford Centre. Face-off for Saturday’s game is set for 4 p.m.

The club hosts Wednesday night home games for the next two months, with all games occurring at MSA Arena and starting at 8 p.m. The Rebels welcome the Royal City Capitals on May 17, the Ladner Pioneers on May 24 and the Coquitlam Adanacs on May 31 to close out the month.

The Langley Warriors, who won both the regular season and provincial titles in 2016, are the defending champions in the Senior B lacrosse league.
