With a near-full roster finally on board, the Coquitlam junior Adanacs went out and added even more to the mix.
The B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team acquired sniper Corey Shires from the Nanaimo junior Timbermen last week, picking up a talented lefthanded stick for future considerations.
At the same time, sniper and 2010 Minto Cup MVP Robert Church returned to town after wrapping up his junior year at Drexel University.
Both of them are expected to provide a sizeable impact with the club, which sits first overall with an 11-3 record.
"Shires is a lefty sitting fourth in the league [in] points. He fills a big gap we have in our lefties and will be a huge addition to our roster," noted vice-president Garrett Ungaro.
Church, meanwhile, has stepped up immediately and added his usual offensive punch.
In Saturday's 11-6 trumping of the Delta Islanders, the 21-year-old counted two goals and five assists. Also racking up seven points was linemate Reid Reinholdt, with Matthew Dinsdale and Ben McIntosh chipping in a pair apiece.
A day later against the Timbermen, Dinsdale cashed in a pair and set up five others, while Wesley Berg posted a six-point game. Against his former team, Shires counted a pair of goals.
The 19-year-old Nanaimo native is rumoured to be in Coquitlam for just this season. His father, Kevin Shires, was a former senior Adanac.
"Coquitlam is hurting for lefties right now, so me being a lefty is pretty good," he told the Nanaimo Daily News.
Meanwhile, the Port Coquitlam Saints are moving into a newer bracket, thanks to a current four-game win streak.
The Saints picked up two more wins - beating Langley 14-11 and Burnaby 10-6 - to move into fourth spot with an impressive 8-6 record.
Against Burnaby on Sunday, PoCo's Richard Lachlan tallied three times and team scoring leader Nash Harrison chipped in four assists.
Brock Whiteley added a pair of markers.
Lachlan netted two goals and four assists in the win over Langley, while Connor Goodwin scored twice and set up three others.
Coquitlam plays host to second-place Delta tonight, 7: 30 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre. On Thursday, New West visits PoCo, followed Friday by Burnaby. Both games are 8 p.m. at the PoCo Rec Centre.
