Midgets win first lacrosse game

Campbell River Squad edges Juan de Fuca, but both teams are bumped down to the B division

The Windsor Plywood midget A Ravens earned the first win of the lacrosse season, holding on for a 5-4 victory over Juan de Fuca #2 last Saturday in Victoria. However, the next day in Nanaimo, the Ravens lost 9-3.

With a record of 1-5 after six games, league officials decided to drop the Ravens and Juan de Fuca into the B division.

“This is a difficult decision is in the best interests of our team,” said said coach Todd Fair.

“While we have many of the same players on this team that won gold in Bantam A2 last year, this is a different group with their own collective strengths and weaknesses…we believe that this group can succeed.”
