Ravens get the sweep

The Campbell River Minor Lacrosse Subway PeeWee B Ravens had a very successful and quite interesting series of games on the weekend.

The team swept a double-header against the Victoria-Esquimalt Eagles last Saturday. The Ravens beat the Eagles in the first game and won the second game by forfeit due to some very questionable decisions by non-players.

The Campbell River Minor Lacrosse Subway PeeWee B Ravens had a very successful and quite interesting series of games on the weekend.

The team swept a double-header against the Victoria-Esquimalt Eagles last Saturday.  The Ravens beat the Eagles in the first game and won the second game by forfeit due to some very questionable decisions by non-players.

The Ravens beat the Eagles by a score of “several-to-two” in the first game while only taking two penalties.

Neither team had a player injured during the game; no body-checks required an “Are you okay?” visit from a coach.

Some Victoria parents must have put their Easter dinner in the oven before they left for Campbell River since they went home without sticking around to play the second game of the double-header.

About an hour after the end of the first game, the Eagles said they would forfeit the second game as they were short of players.

Ravens Coach Todd Fair offered to loan the Eagles a couple of Ravens and play an inter-squad scrimmage.

This turned out to be a more equal game, especially in the second period when the teams made the decision to swap goalies, too.

On Sunday, the Ravens were able to get right back into action in Nanaimo against Oceanside.

Raven Thomas Dunn made several key saves in goal to keep the score close while his teammates got themselves squared away and re-focused. Ravens team captain Nolan Fair led the way on the scoreboard and with his play in traffic.

The Ravens continued to work hard at both ends to the final whistle and earned a 10-2 victory and a 3-1 record on the season.

The Subway PeeWee B Ravens next games are at home Sat., April 30 at 9:30 a.m. against Oceanside and Sun., May 1 at noon against Alberni Valley.

Come on out to Rod Brind’Amour Arena to watch the fastest game on two feet!
