The Peninsula peewee B Warriors lacrosse team defeated their arch rivals

The Peninsula Warriors peewee B lacrosse team was crowned provincial champions last weekend in Richmond.

The Warriors’ 5-3 win was that much sweeter as it was played against the team’s rivals, the Campbell River Ravens.

The Warriors, who are also Island champions, went 3 and 0 in round robin play at provincials, beating Port Coquitlam 12-7, New Westminster 9-1 and Kelowna 11-0. Before advancing to finals, the Warriors knocked off Delta with a 10-5 victory in the semis.

Coach Scott Hale was ecstatic at the team’s success, saying  the team’s dedication and talent were what put them at the top of their class.

“It was a truly amazing season for [our] hard working and talented group of 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds,” Hale said. “The team racked up 27 wins and only two losses.”

Prior to the provincials, the Warriors also placed second in the Juan de Fuca Captain Cook tournament, placed first in regular Island league play, first at the Port Coquitlam Pop Styles Tournament and won the Island league playoff banner.
