The Comox Valley Wild peewee B lacrosse team brought home silver from the Captain Cook tournament in Victoria over the Father’s Day weekend.
The Wild bested Oceanside 12-6 and Juan de Fuca (2) 9-0, but fell to Saanich 6-2 to finish second in their pool.
In their crossover game, the Wild faced #1 seeded Peninsula, from the other pool. These two teams matched each other point for point in regulation time, forcing the match into a five-minute sudden death overtime period. The Wild found the back of the net taking the match 7-6, and earned a berth in the gold medal game.
In the gold-medal game, the Wild faced rival team, the Coquitlam Adanacs. Though it was another closely played game, the
Adanacs pulled ahead and won the final game 6-4. The Wild pulled off a solid team effort from both players and coaching staff and as always had a great team experience.
