Novice Burrards win bronze
The Ridge Meadows Novice A1 box lacrosse team headed to Calgary this past weekend to participate in the 35th annual Canada Day Lacrosse Tournament, bringing home a bronze medal.
The tournament is considered to be one of the longest running and largest box lacrosse tournaments in the world, with more than 92 teams in age groups from novice to midget competing over the three days.
The Burrards played hard in two games Friday, two games Saturday and finished on Sunday playing against the Calgary Sabrecats with a score of 5-3 to win bronze, coming up just short of playing in the finals.
Winning MVP awards over the weekend were Cole Leon, Drew Andre, Lochlan Munro and Caleb Foley.
The boys also had a great time competing Saturday and Sunday in a fun team challenge against a novice team from California. The Burrards team came out on top in the events which included mechanical bull riding, radar gun, obstacle course, top shot, and jousting.
The coaches, consisting of Lance Andre, Ron Williams and Ryan Brandon, said they were proud of how the team played and the way the boys finished the season.
The Burrards team members include: Cole Leon, Ben Williams, Cody Zachow, Trevor Funk, Kyle Brandon, Jake Bailuk, Caleb Foley, Joel Thomson, Ethan Grant, Chase Johnson, Drew Andre, Brayden Hamilton, Kurt Cantello, Dawson McGuinness, Jack Williams and Lochlan Munro.
