The Ridge Meadows Burrards midget girls’ lacrosse team won both its games last weekend, 4-2 over Burnaby and 7-0 over Delta.

In the Burnaby game, Courtney Greaves got her first goal of the year and it was the winner for the Burrards. It was a close game with shots near dead even at 31-30.

In Delta on Sunday, Ellen Harrison and Amber Richmond both had a pair of goals. By winning both games the team finished fourth out of eight teams and now has to play a best-of-three series against second-seeded New West this week to advance to provincials.  The team is also getting ready to travel to Calgary for the Canada Day tourney and will be holding another car wash this Sunday, June 26, at 228th Street and Dewdney Trunk Road to help raise funds.

The peewee girls squad won 5-2 at home to New Westminster 1 Sunday afternoon. The peewee Burrards also defeated Coquitlam 7-1 in Port Moody the day previous. The Burrards hold on to the top spot in the Lower Mainland league with a record of 15 wins and three losses.

In mini-tyke action, Cooper Crowe and Kristofor McManus were both named team MVPs last week.
