Some of the the best young lacrosse players in the province are in action this weekend in Maple Ridge, as the 2023 U-11 BCLA Field Lacrosse Provincial Tournament is being played.

Hosted by the Ridge Meadows Minor Lacrosse Association, the event kicked off on Thursday night, and two host Burrards teams started the tourney. One got a 6-1 win over the Coquitlam Adanacs, and the other a 6-3 win over the Port Coquitlam Saints.

Should they make it to the gold medal game in their respective divisions, the Burrards would play on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at Golden Ears for Blue, and/or 4:30 p.m. at Telosky for White.
