The Save On Foods Midget B Ravens lacrosse team are going to the provincials after winning the final game in its best-of-three series that went down to the wire.

After splitting its first two semi-final games with the Nanaimo Timbermen, the Campbell River Ravens found themselves in a winner take all situation at Rod Brind’Amour Arena Friday night.

In front of a loud, boisterous crowd, the Ravens netted three goals in the first five minutes of play to jump out to an early 3-0 lead.

The Timbermen scored their first goal of the game mid-way through the first and had several good chances for a second on a four-on-three advantage but couldn’t capitalize.

In the second, the Ravens and Timbermen traded goals to make the score 4-2 going into the third.

After a five minute break, the Nanaimo Timbermen came back strong and scored their third of the game less than a minute into the third period, taking advantage on the powerplay.

With Nanaimo down by just one, the third period had many nervous moments for Ravens fans but two quick goals mid-way through the third to put Campbell River up 6-3 eased the tension.

Nanaimo, however, did not go away quietly and scored its last goal of the game with 51 seconds left.

With a 6-4 victory, the Ravens are now off to the midget lacrosse provincials next week on the Lower Mainland.
