The Save On Foods Midget B Ravens emerged out of a nail biter as silver medallists in last weekend’s spring lacrosse tournament in Richmond.

After securing first place in the tournament through round-robin play, the Ravens met their arch rivals, Oceanside, in the final.The Ravens came out strong with Jarrett Marshall giving the Ravens an early lead, but Oceanside scored the next three to lead 3-1 at the end of the first period. Oceanside scored a lucky one in the  second to extend their lead to 4-1, even though the Ravens had controlled the play. In the third period the Ravens continued to control the game and closed the gap to one with two quick goals on the power play, by Marshall and Hayden Arbour. With the Ravens goalie on the bench, Keegan Oleary scored with 30 seconds left to send the game into overtime. Unfortunately, after controlling the first two minutes of overtime, the Ravens got caught on a odd man rush and Oceanside scored to win the gold medal.

Ravens Coach Doug Robinson was impressed with the improved play of rookies Ryan Chickite and Brandon Wilson throughout and had high praise for Cody Bezaire’s relentless pursuit of loose balls throughout the tournament. Coach Joe Whyley said he “was extremely proud of the sportsmanship and hard work by the entire team.”
