North Island Rage play well at Richmond field lacrosse tourney

North Island Rage U12 Taylor Lysne (right) uses his big D-pole to hold back a Vancouver player in game one of the Richmond tournament.

It was a huge Remembrance Day weekend for the North Island Rage field lacrosse organization at the Richmond tournament, followed by some solid lacrosse last weekend.

All three branches of the Rage made the trip across the water with the U14 squad netting the ball often enough to grab silver.

No podium finish for the U12s but they played fearsome defence

throughout the tourney with Rowan Armstrong getting a hat trick. Ethan Blacklock showed great team spirit. He stayed to cheer his buddies on despite an injury that took him out of play for the balance of games.

Field conditions at the Q Centre in Colwood were tough for the U14s this last weekend and they dropped a 5-3 game to Victoria

while the U16s took two in row from their Victoria Titan counterparts.

The hunt for playoff spots begins soon and the North Island teams are honing their skills with twice-a-week practices in Cumberland and the Campbell River Sportplex.

South of the border, former North Island players Serena Lasota and

Tanner Jones are prepping for their NCAA seasons which kicks off in

January. Keep reading the Record for more on that action as word comes through.
