The Comox Valley Wild Midget lacrosse team captured the Vancouver Island Banner over the Peninsula Warriors on July 14, winning the best-of-three series 2-1.
They advanced to the Island final by dispatching the Juan de Fuca Whalers, also 2-1, in the first round of the playdowns.
Next stop is representing Vancouver Island at the British Columbia Lacrosse Association (BCLA) Provincials in Prince George from July 22-26.
“The Comox Valley Lacrosse Association is really proud of these athletes and is looking forward to seeing them represent our brand of lacrosse at the provincial level,” said CVLA president Geoff Garbutt.
“It has been a great season for this group of players, a good number of them having played their whole minor lacrosse careers with the Comox Valley Wild.
“We hope to come back to town with more good news after this provincial tournament,” Garbutt added.
