Peninsula Warriors win lacrosse gold, hit the A division

Bantam lacrosse squad moved up a division after commanding win in New Westminster tourney

At the halfway point of the season, the bantam B Peninsula Warriors lacrosse team is celebrating the unlikely combination of a gold medal and most sportsmanlike team title.

“A lot of teams that were there, we played really well, we beat most of the teams really handily,” said assistant coach Rob Jawanda. “The games that got a little out of hand, we pulled right back. The coaches appreciated that.”

They were issued the most sportsmanlike title after sweeping the round robin portion of the New Westminster Hyack tournament on the May long weekend.

“Then we beat Surrey in the semifinal and then Juan de Fuca 14-3 in the finals,” Jawanda said.

It wasn’t an unusual feeling for the Peninsula lacrosse team – at the halfway point of the season, they were undefeated on the Island.

“They’ve moved us up to the A division,” Jawanda said.

 

Midgets score silver

Jawanda and a couple of the other bantam coaches also took some time to coach with the midget B Peninsula Warriors as they scooped silver the same weekend.

The team finished 4-0 in round robin of the Richmond Midget Tournament and defeated Langley 8-4 to reach the finals. Comox eked the team from gold 6-5.
