With the lacrosse season approaching the end, a few Campbell River teams traveled out of town to play in tournaments and did well.
The Peewee team won gold. Novice won silver (green floor) and Bantam C won bronze.
The Campbell River Ravens Bantam C lacrosse team made the trek south to compete in the iconic Tim White tournament in Nanaimo.
The Ravens started strong with commanding 7-1 and 5-1 victories over JDF and Mission. Still dominating in their third game versus Nanaimo, the Ravens drove to an 8-3 advantage into the third period but a late rush from the Timbermen vaulted them to an 8-9 win over the Ravens.
The final day of competition started early with a dominant showing of 11-4 over the visiting Vancouver team. However, the loss to Nanaimo forced the Ravens into a third place match versus the recently-defeated Vancouver squad that same afternoon. But against all odds, the short -benched Vancouver team used heart and shear grit to defeat the tired Ravens 6-4 to claim their bronze.
Meanwhile, the Campbell River Ravens peewee took gold in the pop style tournament with a 6-3 win over Kelowna.
The Campbell River Ravens Novice 1 team went over to New Westminster for the Bellie Bowl.
The team played hard and brought home silver with a loss in overtime. Ravens went 3-1 in the round robin only losing to the team who took home gold.
