Penninsula falls to Mustangs

Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse

Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse hosted its 10th anniversary tournament the last weekend of May, welcoming a full field of teams in the bantam and midget age groups.

The local Chilliwack bantam A2 overcame long odds to win gold in their division.

The team came into the tournament with only nine runners, with two players relegated to the injured list. In their opening game, Chilliwack edged Nanaimo 6-5. The Mustangs doubled up North Okanagan 4-2 in game two, and two hours later bounced Penninsula 10-5.

Three wins earned Chilliwack a spot in the gold medal game and a rematch with Penninsula.

Penninsula carried 16 runners into the game, but Chilliwack’s heart prevailed in a 6-4 win.

The Mustangs relied heavily on Kale Graydon who was spectacular tending the net.
