Peewees win Island title

Ravens lacrosse squad rolls past Victoria/Esquimalt to claim provincial championships berth

The Campbell River Ravens Peewee C team claimed the Vancouver Island championship and will take one of two Island berths into the provincial box lacrosse championships.

The peewees topped the league standings with a 5-0-1 mark, then claimed the playoff title over two weekends in Kerry Park.

The Ravens topped Juan de Fuca 7-2 in the opening round June 19, then won 6-2 in a semifinal rematch the following day to reach the final.

Then, last Sunday, the peewees returned to Kerry Park and downed Victoria/Esquimalt 4-1 to claim the Island title.


Bantams advance

The Ravens Bantams rolled into the semifinals of the Bantam B playoffs with an impressive two-game sweep of Comox Valley last weekend at the Panorama Rec Centre in North Saanich.

Campbell River blasted Comox 15-1 in their best-of-three series opener Saturday, then rolled to a 12-1 win over the Wild in the rematch later in the day.

The Ravens move on to Duncan’s Island Savings Centre this weekend for a best-of-three series against Saanich. The first two games will be played Saturday, with the if-necessary third game Sunday. The winner of the series will meet the winner of the crosstown battle between Juan de Fuca Team 1 and Team 2 for the Island championship.

Campbell River finished atop the regular-season standings with a 14-2 record. Saanich finished 10-5 and swept Nanaimo to advance to this weekend’s semifinals.
