Chilliwack Mustang grads come up big at intermediate lacrosse provincials

Steven Archachan helped the Langley Thunder win bronze in the intermediate A division.

Five Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse alums made it into the medals at last weekend’s B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse Championship, held at the Langley Events Centre.

Steven Archachan suited up for the Langley Thunder intermediate A team, helping them bag bronze.

His team qualified for the tournament with a two-game sweep of the New Westminster Salmonbellies in a best-of-three B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League playoff series.

Langley was joined by the Coquitlam Adanacs, Victoria Shamrocks and Maple Ridge Burrards.

Archachan’s Thunder went 0-3 in round robin play but came up big when it counted, defeating Coquitlam 16-8 in the bronze medal match.

In the intermediate B bracket, four Mustang alums helped the Ridge Meadows Burrards to a silver medal.

Josh Curtis, Alex Rademacher, Taylor Rodin and Isaak Tremblay got their team into the tourney with a two-game playoff sweep of the Port Coquitlam Saints.

They went 1-2 in the provincial round-robin, recording their lone victory over Delta (10-6).

Tiebreakers put them into the gold-medal match vs Coquitlam and they lost 14-5.

Rademacher was named a tournament all-star.
