Ridge Burrards earn B.C. midget silver

Can't get past Delta at lacrosse provincials.

The Ridge Meadows Burrards earned silver at the midget A1 provincial lacrosse championships on the weekend.

The Burrards fell to the Delta Islanders 9-5 in the championship game, held Sunday in Coquitlam.

They had defeated the same team in the final of their own tournament, the Burrards Barn Burner, in May.

Ridge coach Lance Andre said Delta is a big, strong team with all but two second-year players. The Burrards featured 10 first-year players, all of whom he expects to return next season and compete for a provincial title.

“It’s a great group,” he added.

“It was a great season,” in which the Burrards finished second in league play.

Ridge opened the provincials Wednesday with an 8-4 win over Penticton. The Burrards then downed Coquitlam 5-4 on Thursday, and defeated PoCo 7-5 later that day.

On Friday, Ridge beat Saanich 4-3.

The Burrards advanced to the provincial final with a 9-3 win over Port Coquitlam on Saturday.

The Burrards had fallen to Delta 10-6 earlier that day.

Members of the team: Aidan Murphy, Austen Cooke, Braeden Washington, Drew Andre, Dylan McCormick, Dylan Ford, Gavin Bruce, Isaac Ngyou, Justin Cloete, Kyle Brandon, Lochlan Munro, Luke Evans, Mason Morais, Matthew Sinclair, Reece Hansford, Trevor Funk and Trevor Ebbutt.

Helping Andre coach were Trevor Evans, Ryan Brandon and Kevin Murphy.
