The Langley Thunder admit they didn’t have style points in mind. All they wanted was a return trip to the Western Lacrosse Association finals and they got that with a first-round sweep of the Burnaby Lakers. That sweep was locked up on Aug. 9 and by the time they’ll start the WLA finals, against Coquitlam, the Thunder will have had 10 days of rest for the series that starts Sunday night. “We have quite a bit of work to do to get our offence going a little bit more,” Langley coach Rod Jensen told The Langley Advance. “We haven’t really practised together, and this is what (the sweep) allows us to do.” So the Thunder are looking at the break as a good thing, kinda like they’re looking at their second straight trip to the WLA finals. “We’ve raised the bar,” Jensen said. “Here’s a team that had trouble winning (in past years). Good things are happening with this franchise.”Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
