The Peninsula Warriors junior B lacrosse team battled hard against the Saanich Tigers in the first round of playoffs at Panorama Recreation Centre last week but came up just short of making it to the next round.

The Warriors, who finished regular season league play in second place, went up against the Saanich Tigers in a three game battle. The first game on July 16 was played hard by both teams and saw the Warriors clinch the first win with a 5-3 final score.

Unfortunately the second game the next night was too close for comfort and saw the Warriors lose by only one point with a final score of 8-7. The third game on July 19 saw them slip out of the playoff spot with a final score of 6-11.

The Saanich Tigers now face the Cowichan Thunder Thursday at Bear Mountain Arena and Friday at Panorama for the Island banner and a spot at provincials.
