Bantam girls take gold in nationals

The B.C. bantam female lacrosse squad has won a national championship for the first time in provincial history.

Team B.C. beat Ontario two games to one at Bear Mountain Arena on Friday (Aug. 3). The girls held on to a 4-3 lead in game three to take the gold medal.

Mainland girls Keeley O’Neill, Megan Kinna and Katie Browning scored the first three for B.C., but Juan de Fuca’s Elle Hamilton found the net for goal No. 4 to secure the win.

Saanich Tigers net bronze in bantam B lacrosse

The Saanich Tigers came home from the 2012 bantam B lacrosse provincials, held in Burnaby July 27 to 29, with the bronze medal after beating the Surrey Rebels 9-5 in their final game.

Saanich was one of eight bantam B teams that won their way into the provincials beating out the nearly 50 bantam B teams across the province.

After dropping an 11-10 overtime heartbreaker to the North Delta Hawks in their opening game the Tigers rattled off an 8-5 win against the Comox Wild and an 11-3 win over the Surrey Rebels before dropping a 10-5 decision to eventual champions the Chilliwack Mustangs in the semi-finals.

This put them into a rematch with the Surrey Rebels for the Bronze, where they once again came away with the win.

Jackson Boyd from the Saanich Tigers was named the overall provincial tournament MVP, in the Bantam B division.
