Lightning strikes gold at B.C.s

The North Island Lightning struck gold at the Subway BCLA Tier 2 Field Lacrosse Provincial Championships, Feb. 22-24 at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex.

The Lightning captured top spot in the U16 division, with Sam Kussauer of the Comox Valley winning a Fair Play Award. The event hosted 24 youth boys’ teams (Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16) from Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, Interior and Prince George.

North Island split their Feb. 22 games, beating Vancouver 13-11 then losing to Mission 9-7. On Feb. 23 the Lightning knocked off Adanacs#3 14-2 and edged Nanaimo 10-9. That put them into the Feb. 24 final and a rematch with Mission, with the Lightning exacting revenge and taking the gold with a 6-2 victory.
