The Wallaceburg Lakers lost their Junior C home opener, falling 3-1 to the Amherstburg Admirals.

Despite the loss, Lakers General Manager Brain Griffith likes what he sees. “We like the character, we like the heart that these players have. They’re willing to learn, they’re buying into the system,” says Griffith. “We’ve only had one practice and one game, we can only go up from here. We;re very happy.”

Brock Daugherty scored the Lakers lone goal in the first period. Chad Copeland had a goal and two assists for the Admirals.

Wallaceburg is back in action on Saturday when they head to Mooretown. Amherstburg is off until Sunday when they host the Dresden Kings in their home opener.
