This past weekend our Saanich Lacrosse season wrapped up with the Midget Provincials.
The Midget B team lost their final round robin game and missed the playoffs in a 3 way tie-breaker. They did, however, win the Subway Team Sportsmanship Award which goes to “the team that best exemplifies sportsmanship, respect, honour and the integrity of the game of lacrosse as a team from the coaches to their team participants.” Well done!
The Midget A2 team had an exciting tournament. After losing their first game, they scored the game tying goal with six seconds left in the third period and then won in OT to keep their playoff hopes alive. After winning their last round robin game, they beat JDF in the semi-final to play for gold against Ridge Meadows. The first period was extremely close with Saanich holding a 2-1 lead. In the second and third period Saanich took control and went on to win gold (9-3) with a total team effort. Congratulations!!!
What a great way to end our Saanich Lacrosse season.
