Pee wee Whalers finish season with B.C. bronze

Highly competitive lacrosse tournament ends with several tight games

The pee wee A Juan de Fuca Whalers finished off their box lacrosse season with a win Sunday in Pitt Meadows, defeating Delta 11-9 in the provincial championships bronze medal game.

The Whalers were part of a trio of teams given a shot at winning it all entering the tournament. Those teams – the others were Ridge Meadows and Coquitlam – were closely matched as evidenced by the scores in their head-to-head games. Each of the winners in those contests won by three goals or less.

Juan de Fuca dropped a 9-8 decision in overtime to eventual champion Ridge Meadows in the tournament opener for both teams last week, then rebounded to beat Kamloops 10-4 and Delta 4-1 on Thursday.

Friday saw the Whalers hammer Langley 11-2, then defeat Coquitlam 7-5 in their final round robin game to go 4-1, setting the stage for Saturday night’s semifinal.

The mainland squad won the rematch 5-4 to advance to the championship game against Ridge Meadows, who won gold with a 7-4 decision.
