Valley Lacrosse Players Off to Provincials
Six Comox Valley lacrosse players will be attending the 2018 Youth Field Lacrosse Provincials in Burnaby February 9 – 12. Adam Bailey, Andrew Bremer, William Domae-Garbutt, Curtis Egilson, Olivier Laplante and Grady Spaven.
The dissolution of the North Island Field Lacrosse Team – “The Rage” earlier this season did not dissuade these determined lacrosse players in joining their closest counterparts in Parksville – the Oceanside Buccaneers. The Buccaneers are comprised of players from Oceanside, the Comox Valley and Port Alberni. After a strong year which included 12 wins, 6 loses and one tie they defeated the Nanaimo Raiders to clench the second Provincial berth for Vancouver Island.
The Oceanside Buccaneers can also be proud of pushing through with much determination during last weekend’s rain squalls to narrowly miss the island title through a one point loss to Pac Rim (Victoria).
