Attack wins B.C. tournament

The Ridge Attack senior C lacrosse team won the gold medal at the WCSLL Senior C Invitational Lacrosse provincial tournament in Armstrong on Aug. 7-9.

The Attack started by beating the Kelowna Raiders on Friday 8-3. Captain Bobby Danilkiewicz was awarded MVP of the game.

Ridge upset the undefeated Prince George Westwood Pub Devils 13-10 in an intense game Saturday morning.

The Devils came into this game with a 42-game winning streak that came to an end after a combined effort from the entire Ridge team. Call-up Nick Arthur netted four goals, while Tyler Daniels, Brant Hicks and Aaron Roberts got two goals apiece. Bobby Danilkiewicz and Jarrett Neigum had five assists each.

In the second game of the day on Saturday, the Attack defeated the North Shore Indians 16-6. Goalie Brandon Smith did a great job blocking the shots from North Shore, as they tried to close the gap.

The Attack proceeded to the semi-final round on Sunday, where they defeated the Armstrong Shamrocks 10-8.

Winning this game put Ridge into the gold medal game against the Port Moody Express and gave them a chance at redemption. Port Moody defeated the Attack during the WCSLL regular season playoffs that went to a three-game series just days before the Senior C Invitational Lacrosse Championship.

The gold medal game was a tight game, but with strong goaltending, solid defence and quick offence, the Attack took the gold in an 8-6 win.

There were two titles available to be won at this tournament, The Treasure Cove Casino Canadian Senior Invitational Lacrosse Championship and the B.C. provincial championship.

Unfortunately, the Attack had one too many call-up players on the weekend to qualify for the latter title. So, even though they won the game, the provincial award went to the Port Moody Express.

The Express brought the Cup to the Ridge Attack dressing room with a bottle of champagne and presented the Cup to Ridge Attack as the B.C. tourney winners.
