Sports Briefs: Kennedy nets 10 in preseason play

Mike Kennedy outscored the entire Port Coquitlam Saints team by himself.

Kennedy scored 10 goals and assisted on two others to lead the Surrey Rebels to a 19-4 victory in an Intermediate B preseason lacrosse game in Port Coquitlam last Wednesday night.

Team captain Scott O’Coin tallied three times, and assisted on two others for the Rebels, with Sonam Tsering scoring twice and earning a pair of helpers. Graeme Harkison, who also scored once, and Kyle Wegner each collected three assists, with single goals scored by Dean Lawton, Cory Bailey and Ryan Sepka.

Harrison Mortimer and goaltender Jeff Geyer got on the scoresheet with one assist each.

Surrey dominated the game from the outset, outshooting the Saints 68-24 and scoring on eight of 12 powerplay opportunities.

Geyer went the distance in the Rebels net, turning aside 20 of the 24 shots directed his way.

The Rebels open the regular season with home games at the Cloverdale Arena tonight (Friday) at 8 p.m. against Ridge Meadows and Sunday at 2 p.m. against North Delta.
